Third State to Pass Gay Marriage

OK, I have been sleeping (actually studying, same thing)! Here we go with the snowball effect, yeah! October 10, 2008 the passing of gay marriage in the third state in the U.S..

"After four years of legal wrangling in the state court system, the Connecticut Supreme Court ruled 4-3 that a ban on gay marriage constituted "cognizable harm" and infringed on a "fundamental right" of same-sex couples." AND "Connecticut was one of four U.S. states that permits same-sex civil unions that grant rights such as insurance coverage, tax benefits and hospital visitations. But these lack the full, federal legal protections of marriage." (Larson, 2008)

Go Connecticut !

The Outhouse

OK, I know this has nothing to do with GLBT topics, however I just had to share. I was in Sacramento for my Niece's wedding last week. They had an outdoor wedding and hired a portable outhouse for the guests. Well it was nothing like the outhouses I grew up with or even the more modern style portable potties I am familiar with. In fact I would dare to say this portable potty was nicer than the majority of public bathrooms in Saipan. Check it out!
