Maine: Swine flu vs. Hurtful F-U

by Jeremy Hooper

There's an epidemic that's threatening this nation. It's already sickened many Americans, and it shows no signs of ending anytime soon. In fact, there will be a press conference today in Maine to discuss the latest outbreak.

There's also something called swine flu, which has forced the proponents of the aforementioned epidemic to change their presser's time:

We bring you an important update about the People's Veto signature turn in event tomorrow. The start time has been changed to 10:15 A.M.

We found out after noon time today, July 30, that Maine Public Health Director Dora Anne Mills has scheduled a press conference at 11:00 A.M. tomorrow in Augusta to talk about Swine Flu. Had we stuck with our original starting time of 10:45 A.M. we would have had little or no t.v. coverage. All of the t.v. stations are covering the Swine Flu press conference.

Rescheduling our event to 10:15 A.M. allows reporters to cover our event as the Swine Flu event. Thank you for understandingl

Please join us in Augusta on Friday, July 31 at 10:15 AM in celebrating and honoring the hard work and dedication of our volunteer circulators and every Mainer who signed the petition to restore traditional marriage.

IMPORTANT: Peoples Veto Petition Event Time Changed to 10:15 A.M. ["Stand 4 Marriage Maine"]

I feel nauseous.

Fortunately, some other Mainers know the cure for the epidemic. It won't require drugs, rest, or fluids. All it will take is people who are willing to stand up for what is right, fair, civil, and LEGAL. And yesterday, they wrote out the prescription:

Picture 14-89Today, at City Hall in Portland, the Maine Freedom to Marry campaign and supporters of marriage equality gathered to announce that over 60,000 Mainers have pledged to defend Maine’s marriage equality law by voting NO on Question 1 in November. This announcement comes the day before the opposition is set to submit the necessary 55,087 signatures to get the issue on the ballot for a November referendum to the Secretary of State
NO ON 1: Protect Maine Equality [HRC Backstory]

But it will take all of us to inoculate the public. Here at G-A-Y, we plan to keep the vaccine in daily stock.
