PR Decoder Ring

Found this page that defines newspaper terms and thought it could also be really helpful for people trying to figure out what the heck their PR person is talking about. :)

Prop 8

A few months prior to our wedding, I wrote a post about gay marriage. In the post, I talked about the rush of emotion upon finding my soul mate and planning to get married.
i'm looking toward this august, feeling amazingly lucky to have found my besheret. i hope that we get to a point where everyone can experience this feeling - regardless of whom they've decided to love for the rest of their lives.
This morning, I had the opportunity to vote on Prop 8. It was one of the simplest decisions I've ever made. Easier than the ballot question about renaming the Oceanside sewage plant. Easier than the one about the number of people who should participate in the Historic Preservation Society. Easier than anything else on the phonebook-sized San Francisco ballot.

Dead simple.

Vote no on Prop 8.
