Autumn in New York: Equality to come on like a song?

by Jeremy Hooper

Encouraging news from the Empire State:

New York Governor David Paterson recommitted himself to including same-sex marriage on the agenda if he calls a special session this fall.

“I am anticipating a special session and I am anticipating this is one of the issues that we will address”
Paterson Re-Ups NY Marriage Pledge [Advocate]

We just hope the state legislature will leave the tent, elephants, and clowns at home, and actually get something done this go-around. But hey, it's Albany: Perhaps we should just acknowledge that the chambers are probably gonna feature three rings, and just hope that they'll still be able to grant us our deserved two!

I hope it happens, I really does. I'm not overly confident, but I can hope. Thanks for sharing this.
