Civil Unions Bill Signed Into Law

Yesterday Connecticut became the third state to legally recognize same-sex couples:

The landmark law permits same-sex partners to enter into civil unions and grants nearly all of the rights and responsibilities available to married couples.
The new law extends to gay couples the rights and responsibilities married couples have under 588 state statutes, including the right to file a joint tax return and make medical decisions for a partner.

(Of course, shortly after posting this, name service for seems to have gotten completely hosed. Big surprise... Ever notice that the government, which wants to run our lives, can hardly even run its own Internet services properly?)

Register To Vote

You should register to vote. If you live in Connecticut, the forms are online. There's other useful information there, too; say, if you wanted to start your own political party...

For those outside Connecticut, the FEC provides a National Mail Voter Registration Form.

The Deomcractic Presidential Preference Primary will be held in Connecticut on Tuesday, March 2nd. A timetable is available online.

Impeach Rowland?

Should Connecticut impeach Rowland? Well, I think we can all agree at least that he's an embarrassment. Kind of George Bush lite...
