Shower Curtain Chronicles: I Want My Hospital Visitation Rights Dammit

Shower Curtain Chronicles

Latex painted shower curtains make great, cheap, waterproof banners to display at demonstrations, over freeways or anyplace you want to take it to the anti-gay, anti-Constitution fascists. This blog will feature banners I've made over the years, commentary on the outrages du jour, general observations and accounts of the latest actions by our blog troop as we wield the bathroom accessory cum political billboard.

I Want My Hospital Visitation Rights Dammit

I ran into Outfront lobbyist, C. Scott Cooper today in front of the House. He informed me that the Hospital Visitation bill was getting a committee hearing at 3:00 in room 112 and urged me to go. I stopped by the hearing room after I was done at the House but it was crowded with suits and cameras and people were jammed into the doorway so I decided to split. I'm sure Outfront had their testimony all lined up anyway.

I asked C. Scott if the bill carried any mechanism for validating a relationship such as a registry, but he said it didn't. Straight couples aren't required to prove that they're married when they want to be with their spouse in the hospital and neither should we.

One guy in a suit who was playing with his cell phone walked by while I was blogging the House and said, "I'm glad you're here." I'm not sure why he was glad, but I didn't ask him...I just thanked him and resumed staring at the walls.
