The Bachelor Party. A time-honored tradition of male-bonding in which a group of friends wish "Bon Voyage" to their lucky - or unlucky - friend about to take the plunge into matrimony, by drinking more than they ever have.

When this generation allows Americans the basic right to marry and earn money from a plant that isn't responsible for "2.5 million years of potential life lost (YPLL) annually," then future legislation will be based more on reason than superstition or prejudice.
At the Netroots Nation conference this past weekend, I had the opportunity to sit down with Maine senate candidate Shenna Bellows. We didn't have a lot of time to chat, but I definitely had enough time to find out that she has a great and diverse background, and is an incredibly thoughtful person

Tony Dungy was a successful NFL head coach who many people think was passed over for some jobs because of his race. Now, Dungy is saying that he would pass over Michael Sam because of his sexuality.
My wife, Elenor, and I are among the plaintiffs in one of Utah's two marriage equality lawsuits ping-ponging its way up the judicial system. Our case is seeking the State's recognition of the roughly 1,300 couples who married this last winter.
