Beaver State lessens hate

by Jeremy Hooper

Oregon governor Ted Kulongoski yesterday signed into law two pro-gay measures: One that will allow same-sex and opposite-sex couples unable to marry to form legally recognized partnerships, and another that amends the state's non-discrimination laws to include sexual orientation:

Allowing some form of legal recognition for gays' monogamy, and working to prevent the LGBT community from discrimination in terms of housing, employment, eduction, etc. Won't it be exciting when days like that are no longer referred to as "historic," but rather simply as "Wednesday?"
