D.C. Mayor Signs Gay Marriage Bill; Congress Next

While our state senators tripped over their own dicks and lost the gay marriage bill, DC has been a churning gay-marriage-sanctifying machine. They got the second read of their marriage equality bill passed, and now Mayor Fenty has signed it at a ceremony in All Souls Unitarian Church. Next step: Congress, where both the legislators and the President have to say no if they want to stop it. That's unlikely, and even the Catholic Church seems to be calling off its dogs.

Looks like gay marriage's bad year is getting better -- though Congress' 30-day review period makes it likely that the bill won't go into effect until January.
