In somewhat of a surprise ruling -- at least, the reports that I saw from the hearings seem to assume the judge was going to rule otherwise -- the ban on gay marriages in California has been struck down. And the judge's writing has the sort of purity and inherent logic that, like the early rulings on civil rights, tells you who is on the wrong side.

"The state's protracted denial of equal protection cannot be justified simply because such constitutional violation has become traditional"
