A disappointment but no great surprise to learn that Governor Schwarzenegger has vetoed the same-sex marriage bill passed by California's legislature. I share the sentiment expressed in EQCA's news release, that we should take this momentary setback to take stock of how far we have come. That both houses of our state legislature would actually pass such a bill is extraordinary, and public opinion has moved tremendously in just a few years. It won't be long before Governor Schwarzenegger's veto looks as quaint as Governor George Wallace blocking the schoolhouse steps. So George and I won't be able to legally marry in January, but it will happen, and it will happen before very long.
