ezs note:  Tonight, I was about to watch  Stephen Colbert when, on an impulse, I switched to another channel.  It was the Connecticut House of Representatives - and they were debating a very important bill.  It would change the system from the House of Delegates to a popular 'one person, one vote' method.

I, for one, think that a popular vote is far better than the creaky House of Delegates.  I hope that you do too.  However, just wishing for it will not make it happen.  Call your state Representative and state Senator.  

Is it easy?  Nope.  Never said it was.  But you have to be a part of things, pal

ezs note:  I was reading the Hartford Courant a little while ago, and I was a little sad.  It seems that in Connecticut, (as well as several other states) state and city hopefuls simply aren't willing to put their name out there. This is something that is happening among Democrats and Republicans.  

Every time a ballot line goes blank, we all suffer a bit.  And who do I expect to step up to the plate?  YOU, pal.  You can make the case for a more fair, more humane bit of America?  Is it gonna be easy?  Nope, not here, pal...

But YOU can make the difference.

Connecticut, it's YOUR time!

ezs note:  If you live in Connecticut (as I do) there's a special call I'd like you to make.  Connecticut has a good record in terms of transgender rights, but there's one area that's been left behind.  It's in the, uh, "practice" of "reparative therapy", a crackpot pseudo-science with all the merits of Kirilian photography.  If you wanna give it a try, go ahead - but just know you're being ripped off - big time.  Fortunately, my State Senator Beth Bye (my hero!)  is working to get Connecticut out of this business entirely. If you live in Connecticut,  please call your state representative and state senator and tell them that "reparative therapy" has no place in Connecticut medicine.  Just like Kirilian photography.  Thanks.
