JMG Quote Of The Day - Sen. Max Baucus
"When it comes to the workplace, it is unacceptable for anyone to be
fired simply because of their sexual orientation. ENDA will help protect
workers from this type of discrimination and I look forward to moving
forward on this legislation in the Senate as soon as possible. Members
of the LGBT community are our neighbors, brothers, sisters and friends.
They are community leaders who bring the kind of diversity to our
nation that makes it strong. We all have a role in making sure that
Pride Month is not just something we check off on the calendar. 'Life,
Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness' for all Americans is what we are
called to strive for every day of the year." - Sen. Max Baucus, writing for the Montana Standard. (Tipped by JMG reader Mike)
