gender-neutral marriage in california

AB849, Gender-Neutral Marriage in California, moves to Arnold

Speculation is that The Governorator may veto the bill. If you want to express your opinion on the bill, you can dial his office at 916-445-2841, where a fairly simple phone tree will let you express your opinions even outside of office hours.
(Press 2 to indicate that you want to register an opinion on legislation, then 1 to indicate that you want to register an opinion on AB849, finally 1 to indicate support of (or 2 to indicate an opinion against) AB849. It'll take less than a minute.)

Layers on the Battlefield -- Strange Horizons -- Aug 17 '05 - Sep 06 '05
Dear Kaolin Fire,

Thank you for submitting "Layers on the Battlefield" to Strange Horizons, but we've decided not to accept it for publication. Among other things, I'm afraid I wasn't really sure what was going on at the end -- is the idea that the computer was left behind by the other side, and has now somehow been coopted by the side that now possesses it? Anyway, the story didn't really work for us.

But we appreciate your interest in our magazine.


Two up, two down. 18 pending. Need to get back on it.
