Passed: 280-152
How the U.S. House from Connecticut voted: voted
Rep. Joseph Courtney (D-2) Y
Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-3) Y

Rep. Christopher Shays (R-4) Y


And as a side note... Ken Krayeske writing about the death of Hunter S Thompson at Counterpunch:
The Bottle is Done

I'm sad that Thompson fed his head with lead. It makes Bush's America that much more difficult to deal with. As I try to soldier on, I know one of my heroes determined the act of writing political commentary was meaningless in the face of a depraved would-be dictator.

Fortunately for us there are plenty of different bottles to chose from and none of what anyone writes about in trying to stop the crazies in the GOP will ever be meaningless. And I, for one, chose to continue to drink liberally from the many different offerings available in this great big Blogorific world, and to write just as liberally, until this nightmare ends.

Soldier on dude... You aren't alone in this.
Soldier on!

Ken does not know it yet, but he is going to make waves nationally.

Connecticut has the monopoly on being the best at abusing its citizens.

Well those that are likewise abused aren't going to be silent anymore.

We are going to tell our stories and support Ken.

Try putting Steven G. Erickson in a YouTube.com search engine

Try putting my name in a regular search engine.

Here's a fine liberal drinking book in the spirit of Mr. Thompson: A Million Little Pieces of Feces
