Merry Christmas!

Congratulations to everybody in Utah. This such a big deal, and a great way to close out an incredible year for marriage equality. (Now that Utah has legalized gay marriage, everybody on the west coast is glaring at Oregon.)

UPDATE 3:19 PM: Meanwhile, back in New Mexico, a couple of county employees have quit because they don't agree with gay marriage, says the AP:

Officials say a rural eastern New Mexico county clerk and her deputy have resigned rather than abide by a state Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage.

Roosevelt County manager Charlene Webb says Clerk Donna Carpenter and Deputy Clerk Janet Collins announced their resignations Friday morning.

Talk about the wrong side of history.
