Congrats to the Matthew Shepard Act!

I almost forgot! The news came out last night: nine years after Matthew Shepard’s murder, the Senate has passed the Matthew Shepard Act 60-39. The legislation extends protection against hate crimes to the LGBTQ community– and gender and disability!

Three cheers for a Democratic Senate! Bush, of course, has threatened a veto. Which would be a lot of fun. We shall see.
