My condolences to the Bush family. President H.W. Bush had a love for the country that extended far beyond his presidency.
Polis, partner reflect on being a gay couple on the Hill
Out Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) and his partner Marlon Reis found a venue in CNN.com to express the unique thrills and challenges of being a gay couple in the U.S. Congress. While it is perhaps an understatement to call the District of Columbia gay-friendly, Reis recounts the little indignities that come from inequality, such as the title on his official congressional ID:
"When I was told by Member Services that my lost ID should never have read “spouse,” that the government recognizes me only as a “designee,” I prepared to fight — but then found the original card. Doubtless, these are but the opening acts of a years-long play about justice and the steady march of progress.
A diary of Polis’s activities can be found on CNN’s website as part of its special “Freshman Year.”
