Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

Chris Christie said he'd veto it, and he vetoed it.
Delivering on his promise of swift action, Gov. Chris Christie this afternoon conditionally vetoed the gay marriage bill and suggested appointing an ombudsman to address complaints of same-sex couples and strengthen New Jersey's civil union law.
I don't get the "conditional veto" part. That's reserved for bills the governor believes to be flawed, but ultimately worthwhile. Such a bill gets sent back to the legislature with suggestions for improvements that would win the governor's signature.
What improvements does Christie have in mind? Religious exemptions? Or something else?
I still wonder about his State Supreme Court nomination of Bruce Harris, the openly gay mayor of Chatham Township and unabashed same-sex "marriage" advocate.
Could Chris Christie be wavering?
I wish I could say the circus was over. But it's just intermission. The proponents of unnatural marriage vow to keep on fighting. And Christie's conditional veto leaves them a foot in the door.
But really, in the meantime can we please try to address some issues which actually matter? Folks who don't have a job and can't feed their families aren't particularly worried about the tribulations of Adam and Steve.
(And yeah, the Memeorandum thread on this one ought to be lively…)
