No more discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in the Tall Corn State. A unanimous Supreme Court, and no possibility for overly hasty amendment of a protection of rights (not until 2012, at the earliest, and unlikely by then).
I was lucky enough to live in Massachusetts in 2004. Like Iowa, we had some checks-and-balances against an overly quick constitutional revision process. Mob rule ain’t always all it’s cracked up to be; good courts have a place.
