What's important. (My bad).

I'm starting to feel way guilty about calling the President's Speech before the AFL-CIO, the most important story of the day. I'm really down with the Unions (duh), and seeing any reconciliation between Democrats and Labor gives me joy.

But let's face facts, we did see a major blow in favor of Civil Rights in this country yesterday, so the Prop. 8 decision (which, Lord knows, I didn't ignore) may just be a teeny-tiny bit more important.

The again, the decision has got to stand. If the Supremes overturn it (and there's every chance that they could), then today's overwhelmingly good-news story becomes a footnote.
