So this is what is happening across the nation on this weirdly "national day" of "hearts, chocolates, and champagne," in honor of a saint few people recognize:
New York Time op-ed section comes out "for us" in terms of equality of marriage;
Indiana legislature is going to vote against same sex marriage (towleroad.com is the source of this);
Hawaii legislature voted to let us be in "civil union", even with our times of incivility;
Civil union bill entered in the legislative process in CO;
NH legislature debating whether or not to let us be in civil unions;
And the U.K. is about to let civil unions be celebrated in churches and other houses of faith.
What a day!
