Civil Unions Recognized In Connecticut

Republican Governor M. Jodi Rell has just signed into law a bill recognizing same-sex civil unions in Connecticut. This makes Connecticut the second state to recognize civil unions, and the first to do so without pressure from the courts.

We’ve had a lot to hang our heads about in Connecticut these last couple of years – a number of elected officials, including our last governor, John G. Rowland, have gone to prison on a variety of charges ranging from the somewhat expected (corruption) to the downright heinous (engaging in sex with minors).

It’s nice to hear something positive on the evening news for a change.
