* Judge eats Mike Huckabee alive as he tries to explain how same-sex marriage is unconstitutional.
* I mentioned yesterday that the attorney general had rejected some wording on the first effort at getting a medical marijuana initiative approved for the ballot. It's just a step in the process. This note from the group working on it:

After collecting signatures, the Act will be placed on the 2012 statewide ballot and voters will be given a chance to make a compassionate choice.
