Bill and Melinda Gates have donated another $500,000 ($250,000 each) to Washington United for Marriage, the group (well one of the groups) working to pass marriage equality in Washington. This is on top of the $100,000 they gave earlier this year. The pro-marriage side has now raised over $11 million, as opposed to the $2 million for the haters.
Still not as much as one of our other local billionaires (Amazon's Jeff Bezo's donated $2.5 million), but this is a great infusion of money for the last two weeks of the election season.
Not much else to say, but thanks Bill and Melinda! Way to be on the right side of history.

Update: And we're going to win this. From a poll four days ago by the University of Washington:
Raw results show that Washington registered voters favor passage of the measure by a startling 56.3 percent to 35.6 percent margin. It is a closer 54.1 percent to 38.4 percent margin among likely voters (who tend as a group to be older).
