Utah too??? Utah too!!!

Sometimes the law is so romantic, standing up for the best of humanity, it gives me hope for our future. 
"The [UTAH!] state’s current laws deny its gay and lesbian citizens their fundamental right to marry and, in so doing,  
demean the dignity of these same-sex couples for no rational reason," 
wrote U.S. District Court Judge Robert J. Shelby.  
"Accordingly, the court finds that these laws are unconstitutional."

and .. .. .. .. .. OTHER GOOD NEWS

I was going to write "Other Excellent News" but it's fundamentally horrible news for a lot of people:
hackers stole millions of credit card #s from Target department store, where I frequently shop. 

My good news is, I checked my account this afternoon and learned that I had used my card there exactly one day (1!) after the end of the hacker attack.

To think I almost screwed up my electronic finances by buying Justin Bieber wrapping paper...

I live here, and I'm gobsmacked. I figured this would be the last holdout until a federal mandate. I'm just astonished, and heartily cheered.

Same here! Hooray!

The interrobang seems the sign of the gobsmacked all right!
But how do you make one?

You open your Character Viewer, it's in the punctuation group. Highlight, drag and drop. There's a way to put it onto your keyboard and let's promise to ask bink about that b/c I'm sure she knows that trick.
