Notes on the Atrocities
Like a 100-watt radio station, broadcasting to the dozens...

Okay, one downside to gay marriage just occurred to me. If same-sex marriage becomes the law of the land, won't this encourage well-meaning single men, particularly lonely ones, to "marry" immigrants? Imagine, a 40-year-old guy whose best friend is Ray from Everybody Loves Raymond, probably he's a security guard, all of sudden gets the notion to take out an ad in the local paper.

"US citizen willing to enter civil union with English-speaking illegal alien. Must be willing to pay own rent and pretend to admire my comic book collection. Gamers a plus. Usual nons."

Pretty soon legal immigration is skyrocketing; INS agents are unwilling to monitor for sexual activity. Conservatives, having lost the hope of converting immigrants to the GOP, are incensed. Soon, marriage and civil unions are abandoned.

Hey, it could happen.
