    I'm pretty proud of my state right now! As has been discussed earlier, the feedback in the 'comments' section is mostly positive; most of the negative comments are so off the wall that the posters are getting properly flamed.

    The "Peoples Republic of" Illnois is issuing civil union licences while in Wisconsin, the Governor will not even defend a domestic partner registry that allows gays to visit their loved ones in a hospital!

    Nice to see that some states in the Midwest still believe in "progress."

    I've always thought of the midwest as a fairy progressive part of the country. Unfortunately, Govs. Walker, Snyder, and Kasich are doing their best to prove me wrong.

    Fantastic!

    And trentgrad, you're just speaking out of your ass. I already dispelled the myths about Walker's decision.

    The courts haven't even defined anything yet and when I went to the hospital with my partner they let me be there with him every step of the way. You guys are delusional.

    They "let you" be there or you had a "right to" be there? There is a difference.

    This is great news about civil unions finally beginning in Illinois. Hopefully this will help pave the way for eventual gay marriage in the Land of Lincoln. icon_biggrin.gif
