No Love in Virginia: Andrew Sullivan points out that Virginia (the state where I currently reside) has gone above and beyond the usual discrimination against homosexuals and has outlawed any private contract that would confer the legal benefits of marriage to a gay couple. While this is blatantly discriminatory, it's also most likely unconstitutional.

What's really sad is that the bill was passed by a veto-proof majority. But a group is organizing a boycott of tourism and commerce that has to do with Virginia. I can't boycott where I live, but I can vote accordingly. And gay rights issue has just become priority number one for me when it comes to state and local elections.
