The New Jersey Legislature Passes A Same-Sex Marriage Bill

I’ve got some good news AND bad news to pass along today. Earlier in the week, the New Jersey Assembly legislature passed a same-sex marriage bill that would make gay marriages legal in the State of New Jersey with the signature of the governor. Unfortunately, Governor Chris Christie is a Republican who believes that the rights of minorities should be voted on by popular vote (a practice that the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals just struck down as Unconstitutional a couple of weeks ago) and he has vetoed the bill. The good news is that a majority of the NJ legislature believes that marriage is a right that should be enjoyed by all of its citizens, the bad news is that the governor of NJ does not believe the same.

The Muppets To Present And Cirque Du Soleil To Perform At The Oscars Next Week

The exciting lead up to the Oscars has definitely already begun. Feb 26 is just one week from now and we are seeing mentions of gowns and of course presenters and entertainers on the big night. The latest news is that Kermit and Miss Piggy will be presenting. There was a bit of a commotion after the producer of the main awards show decided to cut the Best Original Song performance segment (my fave part!), which would showcase The Muppets, so it seems they have been consoled by meeting them halfway. The Academy also announced yesterday that it is going to be making time for a brand-new performance from Cirque du Soleil. More »
