Cool ... and in Iowa
From the Des Moines Register:
A Polk County judge on Thursday struck down Iowa's law banning gay marriage.
The ruling by Judge Robert Hanson concluded that the state's prohibition on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional and he ordered the Polk County recorder to issue marriage licenses to six gay couples.
Of course, the decision will be appealled and Republican lawmakers in Iowa are talking constitutional amendments to ban gay marriage, but still. This is pretty cool.
