There is nothing inherently funny about the photo. It is Will sitting at a desk smiling, with paper in his hands. Perhaps there is a back story or an inside joke that I am not in on. This reminds me of the prison joke where someone stands up and yells "57!" and everyone starts laughing.

I agree that current marriage law discriminates against gays, the law should be changed. I also agree that current marriage law discriminates against polygamists, so the law should be changed to accommodate them too. An aside: a lot of people (such as myself) are are in favor of gay marriage, but want it enacted by law, not by judicial decree. For that reason, I'd support prop 8 if I were a Calif. resident.

>"John McCain’s vision of an angry, divided, fearful America" I voted for McCain, but not because of his vision of an angry, etc. America. The platform Obama ran on was this: 1) an end to the economic crisis, 2) energy independence, 3) universal health-care, 4) tax cuts for 95% of Americans, and 5) a balanced budget. All I'm saying here, is if Obama can't acheive these things, sure he can try to blame it all on Bush, but ultimately he and Congress will answer to the voters. I'm hearing the phrases "landslide" and "leftward shift" being thrown around, but really, what I see is an excitement for a man not seen since the days of the Beatles' invasion. And that's great. Part of me feels a tinge of pride. But I sure hope this the end of the idea that America is a racist country.

"Make sure you get out and vote tomorrow, especially you younger people. " I'm 31, and I will be out voting tomorrow, for John McCain. America has seen recently 6 years of one-party rule... can we risk any more one-party rule? I encourage others NOT to drink the Obama Cool-Aid, and do what's best for this country.
