Gay couples are holding together [c/o Rodney Croome]

Forget the phony figures cooked up by organizations like the Family Research Council that warn about the alleged instability of gay relationships. Vermont has been the only place in America where we have amassed hard, cold facts about gay couples, the only place where, for the last four years, gay relationships have been recognized by the state as equal to straight relationships. And the data is in: Gay couples are doing much better than straight couples are.

A to Z list of gay marriage applicant occupations--We're just like everyone else. [c/o little. yellow. different.]

Abolish the Terror Tax--Energy indepedence is a good thing to promote unless you're the president of Exxonn Mobil who claims "[Americans] do not have the resource base to be energy independent... We simply cannot avoid significant reliance on oil and gas from the Middle East." While he has a good point regarding the unfeasibility of eschewing oil in the short term, he then proceeds to shoot down developing and enhancing alternative means of energy production that obviously threaten his bottom line. Ah well, what else can we expect from the country's largest publicly traded oil company? Salon

True Story, Swear to God: 100 Stories--I must have looked like an idiot at the foodcourt alternately switching between maniacal laughter and utter silence while reading through cartoonist Tom Beland's collection of comic strips based on his life which he shares with humorous hindsight and poignant honesty. It was just thing I needed to tide me over until the release of his sequel to Chances Are which always makes me wonder if I can ever be as lucky in finding the love of my life as he had.

For this monthly-versary (lunaversary?), I did some serious housecleaning in anticipation for next month's big blowout that I hope will be better than last year's rather somber affair. So far, I've...

  • added some new links and set aside a subsection for Blogs
  • moved my archive (all 470+ posts!) to Blogspot to staunch the bandwidth bleed
  • activated my XML feed (c/o FeedBurner) in case any of you want to subscribe to it

Well, it's back to the ol' drawing board for me (literally)... or maybe I ought to get back to writing again. Whatcha think?
