We won’t move to our new house in Winchester for another week—but I’ve already written my first grumpy message to the editor of the local flagship newspaper. Lord help me. I read my soon-to-be-hometown paper for the first time and, lo and behold, 4 of the 5 editorial pieces are slamming gay people. Are you kidding me?Continue reading “Becoming the Guy Who Yells At the Small Town Newspaper”
The Minnesota legislature is having the same debate as Illinois regarding gay marriage. One former Republican state representative in the state gave a powerful testimony on the issue. She was emotional while explaining how her 2002 vote against equality was something she has regretting ever since.

Location: Maine (the state in the northeast corner of the country; most famously known for its rolling trees and as the setting for 98% of horror films). The gist: Maine became the 5th state to legalize gay marriage when theContinue reading “FYI: Upcoming Marriage Battle in Maine”
The CA Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of Prop 8, in a ruling released minutes ago. This means that the ban on gay marriage will stay in the state. However, the court decided that the 18,000 couple who were married in the interim will remain married. And the battle continues, slowly…
The Iowa Supreme Court will let us know if it finds that the Iowa Constitution requires same-sex couples be allowed to marry. If the answer is yes it will be the first Midwest state and by far the most conservative to have thus declared. For the record, I’d be a one happy fella if IllinoisContinue reading “Tomorrow 8:30AM CST”
