Her response was (again paraphrasing) "My staff has presented me with some basic information regarding this, but this is something that we will be researching further so that possible accomodations can be made."

This is the first time I have ever seen any body in the government discussing this situation. Hopefully they will actually do something positive about it and open some doors for further discussions.
Hmm.. i always thought Hilary was a lesbian..i think we should compile a list of the people we suspect are lesbians but havnt come out yet. ala "go fish" (go pish more like) Plus why we think it!!
