From Quinn's mouth to Sen's ears

by Jeremy Hooper

Chris-quinnTo hear the encouragingly optimistic Chris Quinn tell it, the statue in NY Harbor may not be the only liberty-based concept that's soon to become more open:

“Today, after meeting with Majority Leader Malcolm Smith and members of the State Senate, I am very optimistic that we will see equal rights come to the State of New York very soon. Our state has long been a moving force in fights for equal rights, and this crucial bill keeps us at the forefront of this movement.

“During these meetings, I told each of them that I was in Albany to express my unequivocal support for Gov Patterson’s program bill to legalize same sex civil marriage. I urged each to pass this bill in this session. I shared how important this vote is to me and my family, and so many other same sex couples across New York State. We must keep our momentum alive and now, with the legislation in the Senate’s hands, we are going to do just that.

“I believe that after continued discussions and the work we will do in the weeks to come, Governor Paterson will put pen to paper and make marriage equality a reality."

-NYC Council Speaker Christine Quinn

We're hopeful.

And honestly, the "no sex before marriage!" social conservatives should like this possibility more than the aforementioned reopening of the Statue of Liberty's crown. After all, unlike that stone-faced mistress, this statute wouldn't demand that one slowly build their way up a thigh until they reach their climax.

Good for all New York civilians... Tough luck, all New York servicemen.
