MO marriage: Show me State shows smiling gay couples

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 27-19It's not just for royal blue state state anymore: Missouri's Kansas City Star newspaper has begun running same-sex wedding announcements:

Today’s Kansas City Star features the first wedding announcement that the paper has run from a gay couple. The item under the “Celebrations” heading inside the A+E section recognizes two local men who married in Missouri’s border state of Iowa.

The Star’s new policy is one that many other papers around the country adopted long ago, some even before states started recognizing same-sex unions. The decision was made by the paper’s senior management, including publisher Mark Zieman, vice president for advertising Tim Doty, and editor and vice president Mike Fannin.

So congrats, Missouri gays -- your smiling faces can now serve as the coasters for millions of your fellow citizens' coffee mugs. Can equality be too far behind?

It's one small step in the right direction.

We've still got that constitutional amendment, though. Stupid runs very strong in my home state.
