Dog bites man.

In California, a legally married SkyWest Airlines* baggage handler is threatening suit against his employer because the regional carrier refuses to provide his spouse the same benefits it provides to other married employees.
Oh, did I mention the baggage handler is gay, and SkyWest is owned and operated by Mormons?
Yes, I realize "Mormons hate homosexuals" is totally a "dog bites man" story, but it does serve to illustrate the point that "separate but equal" never is.
* SkyWest operates flights for Delta Connection, United Express, and Midwest Connect. Now I'm glad I didn't book my San Diego tickets yet.
