The New York Senate rejected a bill to legalize gay marriage.
In the words of Andy Samberg, "I know you say there's no gays in Iran, but YOU'RE IN NEW YORK BABY!

...sigh. If we can't laugh, what can we do?

  1. In the United Kingdom, gay people can't as yet marry, but there is "civil partnership". On the news recently there was a report about a young straight couple who said they did'nt want too marry but wanted a civil partnership and were going to court because they said they were being discriminated against because as straight people they could'nt have one, they said it was unjust. Now with all the injustice in the world,I could'nt summon up much enthusiasm for their cause.Its a shame that almost 10 years into the 21st century gay people are still having these battles.

  2. i saw your post on meg fee's blog and it just about broke my heart! no christmas tree?

    as a fellow student i totally hear you, but i just wanted to tell you i found the sweetest little {real} christmas tree at fresh and easy yesterday and it only cost me $14... do they have fresh and easy where you live? anyway, just thought i'd share! merry christmas!

    it is a shame that we can't get our act together and accept all people for who they are. someday, i hope we will realize that we are all the same, just people.

  3. I don't know if we have fresh and easy but I am really tempted to buy the little tree that's being sold out on my street. If we weren't going home to visit for Christmas I would definitely splurge on it, but I think I'll just wait. My family puts up the biggest, prettiest tree.

    As for subject of the post, I agree with you both. It will be another battle in humanity's history, but hopefully one with a positive outcome.

  4. buy a little one. haggle them down. i don't really have the money for it either. but i'll let other things go. the price of a real christmas tree really is...priceless. oh boy.

    and what a strange world we live in--isn't it. where the government can dictate who has the right to join in a marriage. as well as almost everything else. hmph. i don't like it one bit.
