Murray to undertake Olympic feat

by Jeremy Hooper

   In an attempt to put some sort of a silver lining on today's unfavorable marriage ruling, openly gay Washington Rep. Ed Murray (D- Seattle) has announced that he will introduce legislation seeking marriage equality in the state.

And while we're hopeful, we simply can't feign to much excitement about the prospect of Washington marriage equality at this point. What's that saying: "Hurt my right to love lovin' once, shame on you; hurt my right to legal lovin' twice, shame on your historical legacy?" Something like that.

Best of luck, Rep. Murray. We're sure in just a few days we'll again find our optimism.
