7. I have friends in Palm Spring in their nineties who were arrested for "being queer"
I also had a dear friend who languished in jail in Laguna Beach in the 1950's for months. I wish he were alive today. Thanks to you, too, mitchtv for all you've done all these years. The culture has changed and this case, these two lawyers and clear violation of the Equal Protection Clause makes me very confident in how this will ultimately end. We will be victorious.
