If you're in a diabetic or prediabetic state, it's good to have medication to go on for a period of time.

Almost always, the creative dedicated minority has made the world better.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Well, my personal mission statement is that we want marriage equality in all 50 states. We want it not to be a state-by-state issue. We don't want it to be something the majority is voting on. I don't think the civil rights of any minority should be in the hands of any majority.
Jesse Tyler Ferguson
