Proof That Civil Union = Bullshit

UPS is just one of 150 companies in New Jersey which isn't paying spousal benefits to gay couples, even with their separate but supposedly equal civil union. No word on whether or not they pay married benefits to straights living common-law.

Thanks to Joe.My.God for arousing my ire around this issue. Previously I'd been a bit wishy-washy on the subject, doing that thing I do where I try to see the merits in all sides of an issue.

Every so often, though, one must take a stance, and in this case, there's only one side to this issue that has any merit whatsoever. Clearly, only equal is equal; separate is not equal. Civil union is second-class citizenship, and this only proves it.

Queen, Duke Won't Testify

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketIn an absolutely shocking turn of events it has been revealed that neither the Queen nor the Duke of Edinburgh will be called to testify at the inquest into the death of Princess Diana.

Also not called to testify: the seatbelt Diana wasn't wearing the night she died.
