Curt Queedy and Guy Barton from the West Virginia statehouse paid us a visit tonight. The state senators have introduced a bill that not only allows air traffic controllers to take much needed nap breaks during their shifts but also affords members of the West Virginia legislature the same opportunity. “I am tired. I’m ready to fall out,” says State Senator Queedy and his bill would allow him and Guy and others to sack out for about four hours a day.
Next came Doug Danger, gay man and gay journalist, who is anxious to see a California bill that would allow the teaching of gay history to be rapidly implemented and he wants no input from straight parents, only gay parents. He says gay parents carry the stories of tribal traditions from their gay ancestors. Doug also has his “Gay Road Show,” a collection of LGBT people he’ll parade in front of the kids for a quarter.
