Courtney Milan has written a funny yet accurate summary of the oral arguments on Prop. 8 before the Supreme Court:

This summary is still fairly long, but it’s shorter and I’ve worked to make things as accessible as possible to those without legal training [...] this is basically what happened, plus or minus the aliens eating children.

[...]

COOPER: Thank you, Mr. Chief Justice, and may it please the Court. Today, we—

ROBERTS: In keeping with the practices of this Court, we don’t allow anyone to complete a full sentence before interrupting them. Tell us why the people who hired you should even be allowed to bring a case. [...]

I also welcome you back among the living.  As one of the oldest (because I have outlived most of my friends) I can attest to the fact that getting old aint for wimps.  May you also reach a grand old age.

I am also glad to hear things are going better for you, my friend. In lieu of being able to send flowers, I would like to send you the following. We are thinking of you.

Daniel, I am so happy to read your post! Goodness, so much tissue gone. I don't know any remedies for hiccups that work, sorry. Up and walking is the best news of all. Do take good care of yourself and send notes when you feel like it. We all shared anxiety over how you are doing and just seeing your name this morning made my day. 
Will you be expecting weight loss with part of your stomach gone? I will think positive thoughts that you recover quickly and without pain.

Hey all... Back on my feet now. The surgeon took a chunk of stomach, a big tumor and a thin slice of liver. I am up walking around now.hiccups hurt like hell, Ow! Back io the routine soon. ThaNks for the well wishes it matters a lot!

I been in several relationships and at my age and having my home, I can see sharing my life with someone, but i assume that person will have their own home, possessions etc.  I'm too old to play house.  In other words, I probably will never get married (when allowed) even if I am in a relationship.  I'm not saying never, just probably not.

That being said, I agree on how important this decision is for gay people. It is outrageous that any person or group of people is treated differently from the mainstream.  Even if I don't take advantage of it, I am entitled to whatever society offers anyone else.  I'm tired of my life, my love, my sexuality, and my humanity being debated.  I am not an issue; I am a person.

You never said why but I wish you great success.  I have had more than my share of major surgery in my time and I as well as everyone else were surprised that I lived through all of them.  My last one was GRS and that one I wanted and needed and was the best thing to ever happen.  I doubt if yours has the same meaning to life as that one but here is wishing that your Op comes close.  Some would pray for you but there is not a lot of that about here, just good luck.

Yes Tues - was off today and forgot what day is is.  Thanks for the good wishes.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on March 25, 2013 at 8:00pm

Today is Monday......do you mean Tuesday am?  I wish you well and a speedy recover.  You're very valued here as well.   

Comment by Daniel W on March 25, 2013 at 7:55pm

Well everyone, I have major surgery Monday am.  This forum is a great place for discussion and friendship.  I value all of you.  

The indicators look good for positive outcome and recovery, although honestly I am a bit dumbstruck by it.  

Once I have computer access afterwards, I'll update you.  That could be a couple of days.  Best wishes to all.
