HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut’s Supreme Court ruled Friday that same-sex couples have the right to marry, making the state the third behind Massachusetts and California to legalize such unions.

The divided court ruled 4-3 that gay and lesbian couples cannot be denied the freedom to marry under the state constitution, and Connecticut’s civil unions law does not provide those couples with the same rights as heterosexual couples.

The LA Times ran an article on San Francisco’s health plan, and while the article is pretty positive, I was struck by the way the plan was described as springing full-born from Gavin Newsom’s head.

Newsom began studying the matter. City officials estimated that they were spending $111 million annually to treat the uninsured at San Francisco General Hospital. Why not, Newsom and his staff asked, take some of that money and invest in prevention so that underprivileged residents would not have to resort to hospital visits to treat illnesses?

It’s like a story out of the first Mayor Daley’s Chicago: local venue hosts a party for an organization critical of the Mayor. Two days before the party’s supposed to happen, venue gets shut down.

The California Dept. of Education released its test results yesterday.

SFUSD Superintendent Garcia stated on Tuesday, “I can’t tell you any thing about the results, because they embargoed. But I can tell you that I am pleased and I have a big smile.”

Under NCLB, students are tested on English Language Arts and mathematics. Students are rated on being “advanced,” “proficient” (grade level), “basic,” “below basic” and “far below basic.” Here is the breakdown for the district. I will be posting for various schools over the next couple of days.

Last night I was on KPFA (about 72 minutes into the show) with Josie Lehrer discussing the Men’s Story Project. I hope to see you there. I will be readiing a letter to my father and performing with 16 other men discussing masculinity.

Marc Solomon’s argument against a United ENDA is right on one point: legislative politics is often about achieving compromise. It’s understandable that this would be the case since multiple facets of an issue are involved. It’s hard to accommodate each group whose opposition might be based on any number of financial, ethical, policy, or hundreds of other considerations. Plus, getting Congress to pass anything remotely protecting queer rights is incredibly difficult. Still, I steadfastly agree that a United ENDA is the only acceptable choice.
