Domestic-partners hearing, by the numbers...

(And thanks to the helpful person who compiled this for me.)

28: Number of sign-in sheets required for the standing-room-only crowd that testified in a House committee Thursday.

197: Number of people who signed in.

43: In favor of the bill, which would grant domestic partners virtually all the rights and responsibilities of married couples.

142: Opposed.

7:40: The number of minutes and seconds it took Rep. Roger Goodman to read the names of everyone who had signed in.
