Letters | Separate but equal thinking

I remind like to remind Rep. Jay Rodne that, concerning his stance of separate-but-equal thinking in regards to marriage versus domestic partnership, that there was a time in our country's history when whites-only and blacks-only water fountains existed. Each of them did, indeed, contain equal amounts of water.

Also, until gay/lesbian marriage is made legal on a federal level, most of the benefits of marriage will be still be unavailable to same-sex couples.
