Thank you Mary Oberst, Oregon's First Lady

Tonight Mary Oberst opened the hearings on SB 1000, protecting Oregon's gay and lesbians from discrimination, and providing for civil unions. I've never heard her speak, and I was moved and so happy to hear her voice. "You can’t make laws that specify who you can love....and I don’t think it’s a great leap for this legislature to pass bill 1000…’s not only practical, it’s forward thinking, and it’s wise." Thanks, Mary.
