Ann Landers Posthumously Opposes Prop 8

Timothy Kincaid

November 2nd, 2008

Margo Howard is the daughter of Eppie Lederer, the woman who wrote for 47 years as Ann Landers. Howard has written a column opposing Proposition 8, invoking her mother’s name.

While I seldom try to speak for her, I know for a certainty that she would have encouraged all the people who ever wrote to her looking for guidance to vote no on Proposition 8. I know this because she was all about equality, dignity and rights. While she would have respected those who took the Bible literally, she also would have invited them to live according to their principles, and allow others to do the same. So if, per chance, before you vote you might wonder what your old friend Ann Landers would advise, remember her lifelong devotion to fairness, open-mindedness and love.

Ann Landers and Judith Martin, two women upon whom we could always rely for the answers.

Well we lost all the ballot initiatives. I do not know whether to laugh or cry. The joy I felt when Obama won is greatly diminished. Farm animals were given more consideration by the people of CA then were us Gays. Yeah for mob rule! I was afraid this would happen with the large Black turn out, and it appears they turned on us…big time. I know this is not p.c. to say but they were the largest block to deny us our rights, but I do not only blame them. Mormons, Evangelicals, Knights of Columbus, James Dobson and his minions…I say a great big F@#k you to all of you!
