Governor Neil Abercrombie of Hawaii has signed the civil union bill! I think it is one of these everything but the name marriage bills, but I'm not sure. The gov. said some nice things in the signing ceremony, but blew it when he said, "The legalization of civil unions in Hawaii represents in my mind equal rights for all people." Sorry, gov., separate but equal is not equal. Even so, this is much better than what the state had before and, in contrast to their last governor, Abercrombie signed it.
