1. I ended up taking a sick day yesterday, so if you were wondering where another “sad little blog post” (to quote Mr. Isbell!) like Wednesday’s was, that’s what happened.

2. The Tribune this morning wrote about Ralph “O RLY?” Becker’s plan to create a domestic partner registry and included the best quote from Sen. Chris Buttars, R-West Jordan: “I just have to be certain we’re not coming in the back door of the Amendment 3 [ban on gay marriage and civil unions]”. The back door, Buttars? O RLY?

3. ..and that’s all I have, I guess. Enjoy the weekend not having stomach flu!
