Anchorage mayor tells lesbians & gays: Don't worry, be happy

Mayor Dan Sullivan vetoed a bill that would have protected the citizens of Anchorage from discrimination on based on sexual orientation. His argument appears to be:

(a) What discrimination? There's no stinking discrimination!
(b) Lot's of folks don't like this bill, and boy, that's scary.

Equality supporters are one-vote short of being able to override the mayor's veto.

And so it goes. My sympathies to the citizens of Anchorage.
