People in Mass Houses to throw stones (at needless law)?

by Jeremy Hooper

 Good As You Images 200807100756-1According to several sources, today will be the day that the Massachusetts House finally debates and votes on repealing the antiquated 1913 law that has, up until now, been used to prevent out-of-state gays from marrying in the Bay State:

House to debate 1913 law on Tuesday [Politicker MA]

As you might remember, the state Senate has already voted in favor of a repeal, and Gov. Deval Patrick is eager to sign the measure. So all that stands in the way between a New York-based gay and a wedding atop the Chappaquidick bridge is (a) this one House vote and (b) a fear of getting hitched in locations where infamous political incidents took place.

Fingers crossed (for both a positive House vote and a shrink who can convince you that Mary Jo Kopechne's death was a tragic fluke, not a prescient omen).

**UPDATE: Mass House is a very, very, very fine house [G-A-Y]
