Alabama House members will have to actually talk to one whose rights they've overwhelmingly voted against

by Jeremy Hooper

   In yesterday's Alabama primary, openly lesbian Patricia Todd (pic.) bested fellow Dem Gaynell Hendricks, capturing the Democratic nod for the state's 54th legislative district House seat. And since Todd has no Republican opponent in the November general election, it looks as if Alabama will be getting it's FIRST openly gay elected official.

However, it seems most Alabamans are actually okay with the idea, as at least the sanctity of her name consists of "one man (Todd), one woman (Patricia)."

We'd like to congratulate Ms. Todd on this historic role, and also tell her that we expect fully legalized gay marriage in the state by February of 2007.

Okay, okay -- May '07. We don't want to put too much pressure on her or anything,
