Gay rights advocates score wins in NY, Calif.
California will start issuing marriage licenses to homosexual couples on June 17th. And New York's governor has issued a directive to "state agencies — including those governing insurance and health care — to immediately change policies and regulations to recognize gay marriages."
And you thought judicial activism was tough love!
BTW, will someone please tell Bishop Tod Brown that it just causes undue snickering when he continues to host the annual retreat for the Diocese of Orange priests in Palm Springs. All I can hear is Connie Francis singing, "Where the boys aaaaaaaaaaare . . ." C'mon, the Lawrence Welk Resort in Escondido has some lovely rooms.
 Um, in case you didn't know, Palm Springs is recognized as one of the West Coast's gay meccas. You live in West Hollywood, but you play in Palm Springs. On the plus side, it does allow easy access to the Morongo Indian casino . . . hit me!
