"On Wednesday morning, Dec. 16, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee favorably reported the Domestic Partner Benefits and Obligations Act out of committee on an 8-1 vote. The mark-up, which took less than a half hour, stood in stark contrast to the several hours of debate that the bill faced before being reported out of the relevant House committee in November."

 roadIf you've watched the documentary Food Inc, you've heard of Monsanto, the evil seed company forcing smaller farmers out of business. The AP has just finished an investigation on them: "We now believe that Monsanto has control over as much as 90 percent of (seed genetics). This level of control is almost unbelievable. The upshot of that is that it's tightening Monsanto's control, and makes it possible for them to increase their prices long term. And we've seen this happening the last five years, and the end is not in sight."

Actor Ron Livingston Sues Over 'Malicious' Gay Rumors on Wikipedia

LlivingstonActor Ron Livingston has filed a lawsuit because, he says, he's being subject to ongoing harassment on Wikipedia by an unknown editor of his page there to make it look as though he's in a gay relationship.

TMZ reports: "Ron -- who married a woman earlier this year -- claims some mystery Internet bandit began relentlessly changing his Wiki page to say he's in a relationship with a man named Lee Dennison ... a claim Livingston says is completely false and 'malicious.' According to the lawsuit, filed yesterday in L.A. County Superior Court, the Wiki-hacking began back in May -- and every time Ron's reps remove the false info from his Wiki page ... the bandit 'changes them back almost immediately.' And it gets better: Ron believes the perp also created fake Facebook profiles for himself and Lee, and both pages claim the two are 'In a relationship' with each other. Livingston is suing for libel, invasion of privacy and for using his name and likeness without his permission. Damages haven't been specified."
