News 6/11/10

(Today in hair: A couple of snoods.)

"2.5 %! Take It Or Leave It!" One-day nurse strike ends in Minnesota as systemic problems remain.

"Beware Rabbit-Boilers, Where Ever You Are!" Feds clarify that codes against domestic violence apply to gay couples too. Cue the outrage from from right-wing jackasses in Three, Two, One...

Candace Chellew-Hodge over at Religion Dispatches opines about overwhelming gay opposition to Arizona's horrible new law against brown people who don't talk good English:
"And yet, it is gays and lesbians who by and large have rejected religion, who are displaying some of the most Christian principles in this matter."

NYT* Editorial about Prop 8 closing arguments comes down decisively in favor of marriage equality.

*(This is the same NYT that refused to use the word "gay" or cover the AIDS crisis until 1987. Up yours A.M. Rosenthal. Oh right, you're dead. Good.)

Update: Larry Gross's full description of A.M. Rosenthal's shittyness can be found here. Hat tip to Dr. Snickerdoodle.
