I think most people would take a headline: "Prop 8 Ruling Announced" to mean that the decision itself had been reached and published. Had I not seen elsewhere first that the Court WAS GOING TO ANNOUNCE its ruling next Tuesday somewhere else, I certainly would have bought in.

I was rushing to get the news out. I agree the headline is ambiguous, but I did not mean to be deceptive. I'll go add "Date" between "Ruling" and "Announced."

its ok... we are all nervous... and exhausted...

For us in California... it is DAY of DECISION. Various events are being held.
In order to lend support no matter the decision, basically we feel the 18.000 marriages performed before Nov 4 will be upheld, as will Prop H8, e.g. no new ones allowed post Nov. 5th...
the events will be

WHITE Knot/ White Ribbon/ White Flower/Petals events.

e.g. Wear a knotted white ribbon..
OR Better yet for a lot of support. Buy some White Ribbon and tie it around anything you like!

That is the symbol for Marriage Equality.
Thanks from CA.

THanks for keeping us informed, Dana!

I hope Prop 8. goes our way, but I fear by the oral arguments I heard on March 5th, that the supreme court will uphold Prop. 8. I do suspect that they will uphold the 18, 000 marriages, but unless they totaly repeal prop. 8, it will be a sad day for out community. If we lose, we must never forget how far we've come and how far we could go back. If we win, it will be a big help in future cases and a big help in our fight for equality. We can only wait and see. I encourage everyone who can, to participate in the day of decisions rally. Google it if you havn't heard of it. We need people to know, we're here, we're queer and we're not going away.
