Slow, Steady March

Governor Baldacci of Maine signed a bill today equalizing marriage rights for gay people. Maine becomes the 5th state to do so. The Bangor Daily News has the story.

Yesterday the Washington, DC City Council voted to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states. And later this afternoon, the New Hampshire State House will likely give final approval to that state's same sex marriage legislation. No definitive word on whether or not NH Gov. Lynch will sign the measure. I'm betting he does.
