Cheers to my all-time-favorite summer vacation spot. (More people with my unusual surname than any other state, too, and I've never met any of 'em!)

Nice to see marriage equality is sweeping the nation.

Mother Jones has already updated their static map.

One particularly fucked provision of the now-invalidated Wisconsin law:
...Wisconsin law allows domestic partnerships but makes it illegal for same-sex couples to travel out of state to marry. Couples who do so, and continue living in Wisconsin, risk a $10,000 fine and nine months in prison...
(From the MJ update.)

I don't see how that out of state fine can stand if it isn't in force for heterosexual couples.

That's the tyranny of the majority, @5. If you don't like it, you have to go to court. Fortunately, a bunch of people did.

Sable Park Photography has a horrible website. That slow-loading background photo then kills everything else. They may be gay-friendly but their website stinks.

@4: "Wisconsin law allows domestic partnerships but makes it illegal for same-sex couples to travel out of state to marry. Couples who do so, and continue living in Wisconsin, risk a $10,000 fine and nine months in prison" -- Bloody hell. Good find - I had no idea such a fucked up law was on the books. Good riddance.

@8: That shouldn't stand up to any sort of judicial review. If it involves crossing state lines in any way, it instantly becomes a federal matter.
