I know I’m not all that important, but if you happen to live in New Jersey and randomly come upon this blog, please please please please call your State Senator and insist they pass the bill that will be coming before them soon, enshrining civil equality in at least one more state. After the reverses in California, Maine, and New York, New Jersey has a chance to not be a giant scumhole for once.
If you know anyone in New Jersey, ask them to talk to their State Senator. Time is of the essence – outgoing Governor Jon Corzine will sign the bill if it hits his desk before he’s out of office; the new Republican Governor will veto it. Please, New Jersey…get it done.
(as an aside, we’re in trouble when we look to New Jersey to restore faith in the human species.)
