    What is a huge deal to me here is that this is the first time a U.S. state has ever legalized gay marriage purely through the legislative process. All other instances of legal same sex marriage came after a court order.

    Also interesting, Washington D.C. just passed a law saying that, although they will not issue same-sex marriage licenses, they will honor licenses issued by other states.

    I'm kind of excited about all this. I want to look at this last week as a real turning point.
