Even the Post is a little bewildered today by the news that a cab driver in the East Village kicked out Paul Bruno and his boyfriend after the pair merely hugged in the backseat. The upholstery in cabs is not made of fluidproof rubber products to ward off all that hugging that goes on back there. In related news, it looks like gay people in Washington will soon be able to legally enter into domestic partnerships that resemble marriage in everything but name, and the southern cities of Chapel Hill and Houston appear to be on the brink of both electing gay mayors.
