Rainbow over New York


Rainbow over New York, originally uploaded by JaredsEyes.

The New York State Senate passes a bill that, when signed into law by the Governor, will make it legal for homosexuals to marry in this state.

I've been very bitter and discouraged on the political front lately, for a lot of reasons, so it's awfully heartening to see that yes, we do get it right once in a while. New York's state legislature usually resembles a tire fire that's been dropped on top of a train wreck. That they managed to make this happen is nothing short of astonishing.

Connecticut.
Iowa.
Massachusetts.
New Hampshire.
Vermont.
New York.

Forty-four to go. Who's next?
