"Why didn’t you tell me your aunt was literate?"

Those words exclaimed by Gloria Upson in the movie “Auntie Mame” pop into my head each time House Party demi-mondine Tobin has something printed in the paper. This time he has written to USA Today and it was published today in the Opinion section under the heading “Progressives, States must leave marriage to the church”. Tobin decided to comment on the Hawai’ian governer Linda Lingle’s misguided and patently stupid veto of the same-sex partnership bill passed by the Hawai’ian Legislature. 

Hawaii governor wrong

When Republican Gov. Linda Lingle of Hawaii vetoed the Legislature’s attempt to give same-sex couples the same rights as married people, she said not one person or group should decide this issue.

Her one-woman veto of the bill is the height of hypocrisy. Her dismissal of the Legislature is astonishing. What is it going to take to convince people that it’s not the American way to put your neighbors’ rights up for a vote? History has proved that.
Tobin Wirt; Sandwich, Mass.

You said it Mary!
