But is it too little, too late to mend the growing rift between Obama and gay rights advocates, especially after last week’s controversial (to say the least) DOMA brief? From my perspective it’s a very small first step in the right direction, but very small—until the Lieberman-Baldwin Domestic Partnership Benefits and Obligations Act passes Congress it won’t even cover health benefits.

* Report: 90% Of Waking Hours Spent Staring At Glowing Rectangles.

* Alex Pareene’s new blog reports that everyone is trying to kill you.

* Let UNC tell you how old your body is. More here and here.
