While much won't change on the state level for married same-sex couples, they actually will retain federal benefits regardless of the state they live in. For example, if a same-sex couple went to Massachusetts to get married and then returned to Alabama, one spouse would still be able to sponsor the other for a green card or citizenship, their children would now be able to claim both parents on the FAFSA, etc., despite Alabama's ban on marriage equality. It's just the state-specific benefits they would continue to be denied. We've got a long way to go, but I know that one day we'll look at the debate over same-sex marriage the same way we now view the debate over interracial marriage of the '60s.

There's a lot of great language in this piece, but these are my favorites: "...with each word, Updyke’s eyelids drooped lower and his breathing became more labored." "The father whose daughter would no longer speak to him. The Alabama fan whose beloved university banned him from its campus..." I really enjoyed reading this. Great job of humanizing "the devil", Mr. Yawn.

That would be a terrible idea. There wouldn't have been more Auburn fans at the 2010 championship game if it was held at Auburn because the schools only get a certain amount of tickets to distribute from the NCAA. It would just mean that more people would have been outside the stadium and in the city of Auburn. The number of tickets each school received wouldn't have changed. Not sure "easier to attend" is true either. It all has to do with how loyal the fan base is. I went to the 2010 game in Glendale and I would say Auburn had just as many if not more fans than Oregon and we had to travel much farther. And the fans who didn't get to go got to roll the hell out of Toomers, which is special in its own way. We didn't get to do that in Glendale. We don't need to worry about this anyway because we aren't going to win it all again anytime soon. What I do know is I don't want the game played for the next few years in our state at our rival's stadium because they will win it again multiple times in the next five seasons or so.

Does not look like they are telling the donor what to do. In fact, they aren't even TELLING the recipients. Since the flight program which is part of the Business School needs additional faculty why not take advantage of the donor's intentions by hiring more faculty.

Agreed. As a Viet Vet, Hal Moore is one of my heros. He and Joe Galloway symbolize the greatness of our country's military and what the press should be.

I'm glad you're so willing to tell someone else what to do with the $40 million they are giving to Auburn academics. The correct thing to say is "thank you."

Josh has represented his Auburn family well and his friends and family that know him best. Hes one guy that takes nothing for granted. Proud of him! His story will live on in Auburn, Georgia, Florida and in all the places his life touches!
