This is certainly good news:
Gay rights advocates had reason to celebrate on both coasts Thursday, with New York set to recognize same-sex marriages performed elsewhere and California preparing to begin issuing marriage licenses to gay couples on June 17.
Hours after California issued a directive Wednesday authorizing that date, word came that New York Gov. David Paterson instructed state agencies — including those governing insurance and health care — to immediately change policies and regulations to recognize gay marriages.
I’m sure we’ll be subjected to outrage from the right. Why does this stuff always happen during election cycles? Oh, right, because we’re always in an election cycle.
Feel free to post silly right-wing overreactions to this in the comments.
