Some days I have fewer brain cells than others

Posted By on Thu, Jan 31, 2008 at 1:47 PM

I was reminded by an eagle-eye reader that the reason the Domestic Partnerships Registry in Eureka Springs never went to a public vote was because both petitions filed failed to have enough legal signatures needed to get it on the ballot.

I knew that, too, somewhere in the dark, dank recesses of my memory.

The same reader wrote  that the minister behind the petition (and his attorney wife) couldn’t figure out how to draft a legal petition. Though when you think about it, should a simple matter of civil rights be put up to vote of the people? Imagine Mississippi is 1963, or Arkansas in 1954.

Thanks for catching my error.
