New Yorkers [Jun. 4th, 2008|10:31 pm]

As you may or may not know, Governor Patterson has said that New York will start recognizing same-sex marriages preformed in other states. Well, right-wing groups have been giving him hell about it, and now one group has sued to stop the measure.

The Governor's office is doing a sort of informal poll of residents, seeing what people's opinions are about the whole thing. All I'm asking is for you to quickly call up 1-518-474-8390, tell them "I support the Governor's position on same-sex marriage," and give them a NY zip code. It took me like 10 seconds.

Cross-posted.

So, it's been 2 years since Tom Fox died. It doesn't seem like it's been so long. I think about him all the time, but unlike many people that I've known, I don't tend to think of him in an exclusively mournful way. Of course, it makes me sad that he's gone. I feel like that's something that I, and most of us who knew him, won't ever fully shake. But he was the sort of guy who no one, not even a casual acquaintance, could ever forget. So whenever I think of him, I'll feel sad for a minute, but that will quickly morph into wanting to go out and save the world- whether it be via making a large commitment as he did, volunteering for a local non-profit or simply helping a stranger carry their stroller up the subway stairs- it sounds incredibly scripted, but each time I think of him, I want to go out and be a better person.

The organization that he was doing work with when he died was the Christian Peacemaker Teams. They're still out there doing good work—in Iraq like Tom and in other areas too. I just made a donation in Tom's name. Here's the link for anyone else may feel moved to do the same: http://www.cpt.org/participate/donate . I know that not everyone reading this is able to or would want to donate, but I'm putting the link here incase anyone would be interested in donating or passing along the link.

Today, and everyday, please continue to hold his family and the people who are still non-violently fighting the good fight with CPT and other great organizations in the Light.

Yesterday I was coming home from work and noticed that an apartment on the third floor had several empty bags of horse feed sitting out with the trash. There are no stables nearby. Is there a horse living below me?

It's really shitty and quiet at home when Liz and Jordan are out of town.

I went to Liz's parents place for Thanksgiving, which was nice. In fact, I'm not scared of them anymore. They're pretty awesome.

Does anyone have a [good] list of trans*-related terms and definitons that they could e-mail to me? My mom's on a Leslie Feinberg reading kick and wants me to send her a list so she can understand what she's reading.

Someone just characterized herself as a "lefty wingnut" on Fox News. She's awesome. I don't know who the hell she is, but she's talking about how Bush is going to help the Republicans steal the next election too.
