Blight on historical remembrance advances in Mass

[writer sips glass of water and clears throat] Okay, where was I? Oh yea -- Should the measure receive 50 affirmative votes in the next legislative session, it will go to the state's voters in the 2008 election. Then if approved by the public, it would strip gay marriage rights from the one state where they are currently in place.

But let's not think about that for now. For now, let's just assume this "pro-family" victory was a fluke, and that should a public vote arise, Mass residents will be wise enough to rise up against this baseless attempt to tarnish their state's most precious governing document.

*Thanks to the 132 lawmakers who DID recogniz this nonsense for the potential historical black mark that it truly is!

**UPDATE: Vote being reconsidered? [G-A-Y]
