VA Democrats want a state version of ENDA; New Years Eve is lively enough

Rosalind S. Helderman is reporting in the Washington Post New Year’s day that Virginia Democrats want to build on the repeal of “don’t ask don’t tell” to pass a state version of ENDA. Republicans say it is unnecessary. The story link is here. The Virginia ACLU says it would sue of Rep. Marshall’s plan to ban gays from the Virginia National Guard were to become law, and Bob McDonnell said that Virginia Guard should follow federal law for the military even if conservative politicians disagree with the repeal.

Last night, the Cobalt DC New Years Party (the first since the repeal of "Don't Ask Don't Tell") was lively, but the Times Square celebration was only shown for a few minutes, and Anderson Cooper was missing. No, I didn't write and upload a java application to webcam the dancers and let the whole world vote on who was the "hottest."  But it's an idea.

Cabs were very difficult to find for safe travel home around 1:30 AM.

In 2011, Congress will have the right to review the repeal of the Ban for 60 days. It's not expected anything will "happen", even with the GOP "victories."  Log Cabin says it will stay the course in Court.
