NY: Sanctity of marital discrimination half-destroyed

by Jeremy Hooper

As you've surely heard by now: The New York state Assembly, in a late Wednesday afternoon vote, passed marriage equality by a healthy margin:

New York Assembly Approves Marriage Equality in Vote of 80-63 [Towle]

So now, for the fourth time, we have that chamber setting the stage for the state Senate to do the right, equitable, inevitable thing. And promisingly, in spite of its GOP control, that latter body actually seems poised to stop the nonsense and get this thing done already.

But Albany being Albany, one would be wise to hold off on the hatched chicken counting. In fact, if you want to fulfill half-full-cup dreams, a phone call or two would be a much more productive use of time.
