Out rage

Gotta love HRC head Joe Solmonese's open letter to President Obama. Especially this:
The government again ignores our experiences when it argues that DOMA does not impair same-sex couples’ right to move freely about our country as other families can... This example shows the fallacy of that argument: a same-sex couple and their child drives cross-country for a vacation. On the way, they are in a terrible car accident. One partner is rushed into the ICU while the other, and their child, begs to be let in to see her, presenting the signed power of attorney that they carry wherever they go. They are told that only “family” may enter, and the woman dies alone while her spouse waits outside. This family was not “welcome.”
