Hey, my state did something good today!
Senate passes Civil Unions bill.
Quite frankly, I would prefer if we went whole hog and gave gay people the right to marry and therefore reap the benefits of marriage (although after 16 years, it feels tongue and cheek to say marriage has benefits. Kidding, Loki - I love you, sweets). Connecticut has lost way too much of its talented and educated people to other states. Why not create a gay mecca in the East? Why not make Hartford as attractive to homosexuals as cities like San Francisco? Lord knows Hartford could use an infusion of well-educated, high-earning middle- and upper-middle class taxpayers to move in. Let's make Connecticut a great place for all families to live!
