57. My logic as to why it should be overturned.
It's simply a matter of equal protection. I don't think Prop 8 made mention of those that are already married. If 8 is upheld (gods forbid), then you not only have rights that are not offered to a group, but you have different rights to members of _that same group_. Unless the plan is to go back and strip away that also, but I can't think that would fly.

On the other hand, sometimes I wonder if I'm really that smart.
