    Besides that, most people don't want to click on a link.
    Is there some reason why you can't cut and paste the gist of whatever this is, so that guys can read it, right here ?

    Just my opinion...

    I don't have time to spoon feed everything to you. If you don't want to be infomed, don't click on the link. But just a little info. for you....

    The governor of RI vetoed the DP Funeral Rights Bill and on Tuesday, it looks like the RI legislature is going to override his veto. The bill would have added domestic partners to the list of people authorized by law to make funeral arrangements for each other.

    Governor vetos bill:

    Here...

    "Legislators are expected to override the Governor [Carcieri (R)] veto of a bill that will allow domestic partners to obtain their deceased partner's body and plan their funeral."

    Mmmmmh, and NOM seems to be at it again, thought this isn't really a "marriage issue":

    "It has come to the understanding of The National Organization for Marriage - Rhode Island that the House has scheduled a vote to override the Governor's veto of SB 195 and HB 5294. NOM - Rhode Island urges you to vote to sustain this veto."

    I prefer links myself, but I will say, respectfully, the headline is a bit confusing. I heard of the bill but I didn't know they were attempting a veto override. Perhaps just inserting "veto" before "override" into the headline would clarify things.
