City Hall is bracing for the first day of civil unions for both same-sex and heterosexual couples in Illinois. The Cook County Clerk of Courts opens at 7:30am this morning, and the first couples in line will be showered with gifts. UPDATE: Janean Wackins and Lakeesha Harris were first in line this morning.
