Equality’s Winding Path
New York Times editorial writers

No, we can’t – Today’s New York Times features a thoughtful editorial on our country’s march toward equality. As a fan of Barack Obama since his tenure in the Illinois State Senate and as a staunch supporter of his U.S. Senate and Presidential campaigns, I couldn’t be more elated with his decisive victory Tuesday. The outcome sends a resounding message about what’s possible in America. But this week’s historic election also delivered another message: “Anything is possible – except for equal opportunity and equal rights for gays and lesbians.” As a nation, we took a big step this week toward equality; but the bans on same-sex marriage in California, Florida and Arizona show we are still far from the finish line.
