Yay Maryland!!!

Maryland Senate passes same-sex marriage bill:
Maryland will join seven states and the District in allowing same-sex marriage, ending a year-long drama in Annapolis over the legislation and expanding nationwide momentum for gay rights.
The Senate passed the measure by a vote of 25 to 22 Thursday night, and Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) has vowed to sign it into law.
The knuckle-dragging opposition from the 18th century Opponents will begin gathering signatures to put the new law on the ballot because everyone agrees (well maybe just Chris Christie and his ilk) that the rights of minorities should most certainly be put at the mercy and whims of mob rule. 

But for the moment, let's celebrate what just happened in Maryland. And then ... it is onward to Minnesota and North Carolina where there are big fights to be fought. Oh! And Maine too.
