But I'm not dead yet!
Text message to A around 3:45 yesterday afternoon.
Good news will reconsider. Recessing till 4:30. We get a do over. We're not dead yet!
It started at 2 pm yesterday. The first anti-marriage vote passed at 2:34. There was then a motion to reconsider - which, to quote state house legal council, means "a do over." The reconsider motion passed. At 3:45 I was hopeful. So about 4:35 I made my way back to a television set to watch the debate.
Didn't happen. No debate. Back from recess and they went straight to a vote. We lost .... again.
There was nothing we could do. Yesterdays vote by the Massachusetts Legislature was a power struggle between two men, who were trying to prove whose (insert your own noun here) was bigger.
So it's a new day and a new Legislature. We are one step closer to a nasty ballot battle in this state. But at least we're not dead..... yet.
