No final wishes
Twincities.com is reporting Governor Tim Pawlenty (who, by the way, is trying to woe the right wing as he considers a run for the presidency) has vetoed a bill that would have given same-sex partners the right to make decisions about the body of their deceased loved ones.
The "Final Wishes" bill is by "Project 515," a group so named because there are 515 laws in Minnesota that discriminate against same-sex couples, though the group is not seeking marriage rights for gays and lesbians.
