Start Spreading the News: New York! New York! I Do Solemnly Swear, Walking Him and Him, Down the Aisle

The recent New York State Supreme Court ruling says that same-sex couples must be allowed to marry. The 62 page decision will go into effect in New York County in 30 days. The State of New York Supreme Court Justice Doris Ling-Cohan said that the New York State Constitution guarnatees basic freedoms to same-sex couples and that those rights are violated when same-sex couples are denied marriage licenses. Very good news indeed.

Just think of the possibilities. The writers of Will and Grace now will have their double, double ring wedding ceremony as the series finale. Will and his lawfully wedded man to be and Grace and her chump. How romantic. Lisa Minelli can guest and sing a medley of her songs, including New York, New York. How's that for jump starting a sagging career. And every other New York based sitcom and drama can jump on the bandwaggon. Gay writers have dreamed of this possibility for quite a long time.

My favorite stud, Kyle of Kyle's Bed and Breakfast, http://www.kylecomics.com http://members.aol.com/KylesBNB/index.html
can now have that marriage ceremony with his hot new boyfriend, Breyer, right in the BnB. Greg Fox can draw Kyle in his white tux and Breyer in his black leather tux and spit polished Dahner boots. WOOF.

There will , most likely, be further developments in this ongoing story. Stay tuned.

I haven't been paying attention; they allowed "Will" to have a bf?

I thought the ruling has to go to the State Court of Appeals before a three member panel before being final. Thankfully Elliot Spitzer, the state DA, doesn't want to appeal the ruling to overturn.
