3 down, 47 to go

The Eastern states of the U.S is beating the Western states…yes, I say let’s make a race out of which side can make same sex marriage legal first! Last week Iowa was the 3rd to wake up to reality joining Massachusetts and Connecticut. Justice Mark S. Cady, part of the Iowa court quoted “We are firmly convinced the exclusion of gay and lesbian people from the institution of civil marriage does not substantially further any important governmental objective. We have a constitutional duty to ensure equal protection of the law”. Uh…California…did you hear that!

Elsewhere, legislatures in New York, New Jersey, Maine and New Hampshire are considering bills that would allow same-sex marriage. None on the West Coast??? I am a pretty competitive person so the West either has to get their ass in gear or I have to move to the East Coast to be around people who see this issue as more black and white. I’m sorry but I cannot see any gray area’s here; call me stubborn.

Note- The Iowa decision could be overturned but under Iowa law that process would take at least two years. By then I am hoping all the Burgermeister Meisterburgers will have died off (good for anyone who can understands that last line )
