I agree, Sheep. Or do we have to wait for the official start of Spring for the Spring Session to begin? It's clear to everyone in the world except Maggie Gallagher that gay marriage is going to happen everywhere. Now it's just a matter of the far right dragging their feet as much as possible for the last pain they can inflict on gays.

The legislature in Illinois comes back the 1st week in Feb and is supposed to vote on the issue "within a matter of weeks".

Btw, I see Hawaii legislators introduced a marriage equality bill there as well.
