Great news yesterday, for America, and on two different fronts, from two different places in the country.
The first is that highly Catholic Rhode Island passed equal rights legislation yesterday by allowing, finally, same-sex marriage, becoming the 10th state in the nation to do so:
Rhode Island Senate passes marriage equality, 26-12
The second was and is that so many workers in Chicago banned together to walk off their jobs in protest for a true, living wage:
Chicago Fast-Food, Retail Workers Stage Walk Out to Protest Minimum Wage   Good for them.  Good for us. Good for all low-wage workers, nationwide, yes, but this needs to spread.   Workers of the world...   So good for you, America.  We're making some advances.
