ezs note:  Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen is one of those brave Republicans who is standing by her transgender son unabashedly in the halls of Congress.  Naturally, you have to look at her whole record, warts and all (who doesn't have them?)  but as far as her transgender record goes, she would put some Democrats to shame.

ezs note:  South Dakotans - hey, Dennis Daugaard is a nice guy.  However, he's receiving tons of e-mail asking him to pass this misguided bill.  You can make a difference by sending a polite e-mail  explaining how you, your family member, or your friend is going to jump through unnecessary hoops if this silly bill is passed, and he should veto this bill.  Thanks.
