Snaps for Rep. Petrucelli.

From yesterday's Boston Globe:
State Representative Anthony Petruccelli, an ally of Senate President Robert E. Travaglini, has told a local newspaper he will not vote for a proposed amendment to ban gay marriage and create civil unions that Travaglini sponsored last year. Petruccelli's decision is the latest signal that the amendment -- which he backed last year -- could be headed for defeat in the second and crucial vote by the Legislature expected later this year. Petrucelli, an East Boston Democrat, told Bay Windows that legalized gay marriage has ''made stronger unions among people who have not had the opportunity up until that time to get married."

And on a completely different note:
