I found myself over at Pam's House Blend, reading her excellent post about Gay Marriage in Connecticut. It's definitely worth a read, it's a good explanation of why it's important that CT not just settle fotr the civil unions thing and that they push for marriage.
You may or may not remember my piece on this subject some months ago. It 's an issue that's important to me. It burns me up that people would dictate to others what makes a "legitimate" family.
