TEXANS: WILL PROP. 2 DESTROY ALL MARRIAGE???

Um, no.

'Kay, folks, here's the text of the proposed amendment as it appears on the ballot (and I already voted, so I can confirm it):

"The constitutional amendment providing that marriage in this state consists only of the union of one man and one woman and prohibiting this state or a political subdivision of this state from creating or recognizing any legal status identical or similar to marriage."

So what's the deal? Well, this flake person/group, Save Texas Marriage (don't do us any favors), is just oh-so-concerned about this issue and put out two million phone calls last week. Yoicks. Sez that since . . . well, you can read up on it if you like. Main thing is, it's bogus. For pro-Prop. 2 news and info, your best source is Texans for Marriage (they treat the language-of-the-text question here). For more info, check out the "Campaign Updates" starting on the home page.

Oh, and you weren't going to vote because it's just boring amendments and stuff? Well, get off your duff! Especially if you live in Dallas! Lots of amendments to the city charter up a week from today. (If you're registered; if you're not, it's too late now, of course . . .)
