Illinois steps forward (*with usual and ultimately unworkable 'separate/equal' caveats)
It's a day progress "civil headway" and joy "civil excitement" in Illinois. The Chicago Tribune reports:
Long lines are expected to form early today at the Cook County Clerk's downtown office of vital records as couples from across Chicago gather to be part of a historic moment--the issuing of the state's first civil union licenses.
Couples--gay and straight--can get civil union licenses [Chicago Tribune]
Congrats on this unquestionable advancement, Prairies Staters. Protecting your families is the important phase one, even if protecting this country's sense of fairness with full and equal civil marriage is the inevitable phase two.
