First Thoughts: Prop 8 may stand

[updated with links]
The Los Angeles Times has read the tea leaves from today's oral arguments before the California Supreme Court. The reporters' conclusion is that the justices appear ready to uphold the ban on same-sex marriage, at the same time that they may also allow the 18,000 couples who married before Prop 8 passed to stay married.

After all of today's breathless live blogging and Twittering on the hearing, however, no one will know anything for certain until the court issues its ruling. That may take up to 90 days.

Stay tuned.
Andrew Sullivan provided a list of links to a range of blogger thoughts on the day's events.
