A Rare (hah!) Political Post


Hey, Americans! Vote today, please!

Oh, and for you folks in Washington state, usually I write something like “It doesn’t matter who you support, as long as you stay informed and take part,” but for this year, fuck that. I really want WA residents to check “Approve” on Ref. 71 to affirm domestic partnership rights for gay couples.

One day our grandkids will shake their heads in dismay that we had to actually vote on whether we’d approve human rights for all our citizens. Help us move more quickly into the fair, decent, honorable future we know is coming. Approve 71 and get your ballot in the mail before deadline.

And while we’re at it, let’s send Tim Eyman’s Initiative 1033 down to defeat, too. I’m more than happy to have California residents move up here; I’m less sanguine about importing their political gridlock and debt-crippled state government.
