DC Council passes marriage bill

This afternoon the Washington, DC City Council passed a same-sex marriage bill!  The mayor of DC has pledged to sign it.  Because it was earlier ruled that this was a civil rights issue, the bill will not go to the ballot box for a Maine/California style overturn.  And while it is still possible that Congress could intervene, it is quite unlikely given that Democrats control both houses.  In 30 days it looks like same-sex marriage will be the law in DC!

I won't pop the champagne bottle yet, but I'll at least put it on ice!
