Quickies: 06/27/2012

A young lesbian couple were found shot in a park near Corpus Christi. Mollie Olgin, 19, died, and Mary Kristene Chapa, 18, is still in the hospital. Two hours from where Will and I live, y’all. I don’t really see how this can be anything other than a hate crime. There are vigils planned in a few cities across the country.

Hey, good job New Jersey! Too bad your governor is still a fuckwit.

John Fugelsang extends progressive congratulations to newlywed Mary Cheney, is awesome.

Here is a super-cute marriage-equality cartoon called “Equality for Humans” by Macauley C. Johnson that just popped up on my feed.

This takedown of Scalia (okay, I’ll be honest; any takedown of Scalia) is tangentially relevant to my interests.
