Virginia: Better late than never

by Jeremy Hooper

 Virginia Governor Mark R. Warner (pic.) has signed a bill that allows businesses and insurers to offer health-insurance benefits to same-sex couples. Virginia is currently the last state to prohibit companies from selling health insurance to private companies for coverage of employees’ non-blood-relatives, so this is a long-awaited victory for VA's homo-gays.

Wow, first the Senate defeats a proposed gay adoption ban, and now this. We might just have to up Virginia's status from 'lock your doors while passing through' to 'only scary if you should happen to break down in a deserted area.'

Of course there is still that gay marriage ban to deal with, so maybe we'll leave it at Code Red for now. But here's hoping....
