...the moment we've all been waiting for.
After a months-well, actually years!-long debate, today is (finally) the day for closing arguments in the Prop 8 trial. According to NPR, this decision could be made in a such a way that could (hopefully) roadblock potential future anti-gay-marriage laws, or it could affect only states where "same-sex couples already have broad legal rights, but can't get married."
