I Want My Hospital Visitation Rights Dammit
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.
