California at the Forefront

I'm supposed to be away, but couldn't resist posting about the California Senate voting to allow same-sex marriage:
The California Senate voted Thursday to allow gay couples to wed, becoming the first legislative body in the nation to approve same-sex marriage without a court order.

The bill would recast the state's legal definition of marriage as a union between two people rather than one between a man and a woman.
Of course we still have to contend with the Assembly and Schwarzenegger. Ira Ruskin, our Assemblyman, is worth calling or emailing to encourage support. This is an important first step toward more equality for our friends in the LGBT community.
