Ride the wave, baby

In New York, Governor David Paterson is hoping to revive his ailing popularity by reintroducing a bill to legalise same-sex marriage in the state. NY has a law that recognises s-s marriages from other states but this new bill, if it passes, could also redress 1,350 civil discriminations against s-s partnerships.

Gov. Paterson is hoping to ride momentum from the recent Supreme Court ruling in Iowa and legislative initiatives in Vermont and Washinton DC to recognise s-s marriages.

My opinions will likely be linearly logical and gayly bent, as they tend to be.
