Box office and political action

Well, who knew the Visitor had such staying power? Slinking in at the 10th spot, it's box office take demoted me to 22nd in the box office game, tied with 178 other people who made the same mistake. However, that still moves me up to 90th in the game overall, or about the top 5%. Woot.

In other news, I got forwarded this message for help. I haven't been able to get through yet, so I can't confirm that this is real, but it seems genuine, and the cause is important enough to try.

"The office of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is polling reaction to the California Supreme Court decision overturning the ban on gay marriage. Most of the response they are getting is in OPPOSITION to the court action.

To vote in support of the Supreme Court's decision on same sex marriage:
  1. call 916-445-2841
  2. press 1 (for English) or 2 (for Spanish)
  3. press 5 (for hot issue topics)
  4. press 1 (same sex marriage)
  5. press 1 (for support)
After you've done this, please send it on to all supporters you know."

And although it's not related to marriage, it's always worth reposting; Armistead Maupin's "Letter to Mama"
