And in other news ...

We had a fantastic night Tuesday at Basic Rights Oregon! I just got a card from the volunteer I canvassed with, and we got some 77 - that's seventy-seven - postcards signed in support of equality legislation in Oregon. The postcards will be sent to the Governor and the State Legislature.

I was really pleased at the positive response we got from the people we canvassed. Also I "came out" as a Republican to the other volunteers, and put out feelers about possible Log Cabin contacts in the area. Last September we had around 30 people at what was supposed to be a kickoff for a state chapter of LCR, but I think some of the organizers have dropped the ball. I'd like to see the dialog on gay rights bridge the partisan gap, and I know that it can.
