Well, boy howdy, who'd have thunk it? Gov. Jim Gibbons--a man embroiled in a nasty divorce, complete with embarrassing affairs--was all high and mighty about "traditional marriage" and tried to put an end to a civil unions bill here in Nevada. But the state senate and assembly have surprisingly overridden Gov. Happy Pants' veto.
I have no idea how this will effect The Other Half and I, who were legally married in California (and, surprise again, still are). But woo-hoo, way to go Nevada! Of course we still have that pesky constitutional amendment blocking true equality. And DOMA. But it's a start!
Assembly overrides veto; bill becomes law Oct. 1
