Go West rest, young ban
You know that West Virginia anti-equality amendment that Jeremy Dys is comparing to Civil War secession, and that TV host Bray Cary likened to unions that might exist between a man or a pig or a a man marrying his sister (the latter of which he said is the "exact same thing" as a gay couple's union)? Yea, well -- today this awesome thing happened:
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Democrats in the House of Delegates on Tuesday swiftly shot down Republican attempts to advance a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage.

There's still a chance that the Senate could pass their version and keep this overwrought debate alive. But for now, this is some good stuff. Every reason to be hopeful that West Virginia, true to its history, will resist the push to adopt terms that have no long-held sustainability.
