I DON’T think that Jan Brewer vetoed this bill out of the goodness of her heart; I think she saw the financial consequences to her state and thought better of the plan. Regardless, it was the outcome I wanted: I don’t really care about why it happened.
I AM worried about the cornered animals. At this point, all their whining and complaining has been in the courts; they’re not getting much relief there, though, so it’s only a matter of time before they take it to the streets. I don’t want to say it out loud, but we need to steel ourselves for the likelihood of retaliation against the GLBTQ community all over the country. Once they figure out they have no traction in the courts, the bigots are going to take matters into their own hands, and we need to be on guard for that.
