This didn't get much press 

...but Connecticut began offering civil unions on Saturday.

I don't know if the story is that that another state is offering something at least kind of like marrige, or that there was not a lot of coverage. CT is the third state (VA, MA) to offer these things, and there was a whole mess of hoopla over it when they did it, not to mention the hornswaggle over the california bill that may or may not be vetoed by the governor (who, oddly for a republican, threatened a veto on the grounds that it's a matter for the courts)

Is this not news because there is so much else going on today betweeen Bali bombings, hurricane relief and corrupt politicians? Does the right not have the wil to muster some sort of attack? Do the papers think people are becoming more accepting of civil unions, and since there is no controversey, there is no story (least likely). What is the deal?


I know, I posted. Wierd.

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
