The govenor signed the bills yesterday.

Quote

Governor Kulongoski has signed bills to give gays and lesbians most of the benefits of marriage under state law.

The second bill also outlaws discrimination based on sexualorientation.

Kulongoski called today a "truly historic day" for Oregon.

Like I have said before, I have no problem with gays and lesbians recieving the rights that everyone should have so this is one time I agree with Oregon's govenor. And kudos to the state senate and house for passing these.

But I'm never talking to you again
There's things I'd like to phrase some way
But I'm never talking to you again

I'm never talking to you again
I'm never talking to you
I'm tired of wasting all my time
Trying to talk to you

I'd put you down where you belong
But I'm never talking to you again
I'd show you everywhere you're wrong
But I'm never talking to you again

I'm never talking to you again
I'm never talking to you
I'm tired of wasting all my time
Trying to talk to you

I'm never talking to you again
I'm never talking to you
I'm tired of wasting all my time
Trying to talk to you."
