Who, me run??


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.

Connecticut's 32nd state Senate district


ezs note: Next Tuesday, voters in Connecticut's 32nd state Senate district will hold a special election to replace Rob Kane. Although I am somewhat reticent to endorse anyone in this race, unless Eric Berthel (R) shows forth ironclad endorsement for transgender people, I would likely encourage you to vote for Greg Cava (D).  (Petitioning candidate Dan Lynch is also running.)

Above all, I urge you to vote.  It's your one chance to directly affect who your state Senator will be.  So, uh, vote!
