I'm so proud! The senate passed the bill today 31-8 after the house passed it yesterday. An hour later the governor signed it into law! I wasn't sure he had it in him really. He's made some boneheaded decisions for this state but this time he made the right one!

Here's the local article

Opponents are gearing up to mount a people's veto campaign but we all expected that. It's going to be another interesting November.

    yay! my city council voted to recognize gay marriages for other states. but given that we here in DC are living on the plantation, we'll have to wait for congress to say that it's ok. :angry2:

    10% of our states have gotten their **** together. Progress, sure, but wicked slow.
    "And politically correct is the worst term, not just because it’s dismissive, but because it narrows down the whole social justice spectrum to this idea that it’s about being polite instead of about dismantling the oppressive social structure of power.
    Fun Fact: When you actively avoid being “PC,” you’re not being forward-thinking or unique. You’re buying into systems of oppression that have existed since before you were even born, and you’re keeping those systems in place."
