Same-sex marriage is now legal in New York!

From the New York Times:
The same-sex marriage bill was approved on a 33-to-29 vote, as 4 Republican state senators joined 29 Democrats in voting for the bill. The Senate galleries were so packed with supporters and opponents that the fire marshals closed them off. And along the Great Western Staircase, outside the Senate chamber, about 100 demonstrators chanted and waved placards throughout the night — separated by a generation, a phalanx of state troopers and 10 feet of red marble.
The National Organization for Marriage is, of course, really irritated.

Ahh, well.  Fuck 'em.

Way to go, New York!
