gay marriage in NY

Guess I'm first on my friendslist... Senate passed the bill, 33-29, and Cuomo signed, to take effect 25 July. An article says this doubles the number of Americans who live under same-sex marriage laws; I haven't checked the numbers. Of course, California was even bigger, for all of 5 months.

Apart from Iowa and DC, it's a solid bloc of states. Which touches Canada, where it's also legal. Infectious!

Given how Hollywood gets everyone thinking California's 18 age of consent is universal truth (it's not, 16 would be more representative) and convinces foreigners that they have Miranda rights, I wonder what would have happened if CA had managed to stay good. Gay marriage all over the United States of Television, convincing Americans it was normal...

A fair amount of TV is also filmed in NYC, and so I'm hoping this new law will have national effect. Also, at this point I'm betting the CA bigot-vote will be overturned, simply by virtue of the fact that if the government doesn't defend the decision there's no one who can legally appeal the most recent judgment.
