After five years...

Friday night, over at dawnd's, I finally removed the bumper sticker in celebration of the final demise of Prop 8 (and resumption two hours earlier of same-sex marriages in California. Yay!
Granted, it is slacktivism... But together with the gender-ambiguous vanity plates, it inspired several unknown yahoos to commit minor acts of violence. Two keyings, one acid splash, two slashed tires... Between repairs and deductibles, it cost me $850 to not-pass, so to speak.
At the same time, the weakening of the Voting Rights Act may prove to have the bigger long-term effect, and that concerns me. While still celebrating justice, when it somehow manages to occur. ;-)
