Proud to be an Iowan

...and for once it has nothing to do with a sports team, a vegetable or some sort of natural disaster recovery.  I am extremely shocked, but even more pleased, with Iowa's unanimous rejection of the same-sex marriage ban.

Ironically enough, my roommate decided to rent the movie "Milk" tonight. After the disaster that was "Rachel Getting Married" — I really tried to appreciate it, but just couldn't — Milk was a timely and much-needed dose of optimism, inspiration and, yes, hope.

And, in case you haven't seen it, here is an amazing typographic video accompanying Harvey Milk's 1978 "You Cannot Live on Hope Alone" speech.
