Move over, Vegas: 'Mo roving wedding parties have mo' midwestern Ames
An interesting stat out of Iowa:
Out-of-staters made up 60 percent of same-sex couples married in Iowa since the practice became legal in April 2009, state officials reported today.
A new report from the Iowa Department of Public Health says 2,020 same-sex marriages were recorded in the state from April 27, 2009, through March 31, 2010. Only 815 of the couples were from Iowa.

Though we better not get too cocky. The way things are going, the social conservatives might just call up Jan Brewer for some ideas on how to drive the out-of-staters away.
