IL gays: Next to have equality qualified with the words 'separate but'?
An Illinois House Committee today approved a bill that would allow the state's gay couples to enter into a civil union.
In a related story, we today requested that our local Mexican restaurant give us the full enchilada, but instead they gave us a half-baked version of the entire dish.
So what do these two developments have in common? Well, in both cases, gays are being offered a lesser-than version of what they were actually seeking; but nevertheless, the not-as-fair fare that's being served up is still much better than nothing.
