DES MOINES, Iowa -- The Iowa Supreme Court announced its ruling in a landmark same-sex marriage case Friday morning.
The court's written ruling was to be issued on the Iowa Supreme Court's Web site, but traffic to the site crashed the server and took down the Web site.
The court ruled in favor of six same-sex couples who sought to get marriage licenses, but were denied. The ruling means same-sex couples in Iowa can now get married under state law.
The court was reviewing a lower court's ruling that overturned the state's ban on same-sex marriages.
AND IT WAS UNANIMOUS!!!

This might be the funniest and coolest thing I have ever seen!!
Don't you think that if this happened every now and then the world would be a happier place??
I sure think so!
Go Belgium! And Julie Andrews!
TAKE ACTION NOW!
This is beyond outrageous.
Census Bureau officials announced that they would waste time and money
to remove any same-sex couple from being listed as married in the 2010
census survey. This expensive and insulting policy — a holdover from
the Bush administration — simply cannot stand.
Yep, you heard me right. The census is supposed to count every head in
the nation and punish those who lie on their surveys. But, in our
community, the Census Bureau actually plans to spend money to go line
by line un-counting our relationships — even our legally recognized
marriages in California, Massachusetts and Connecticut.
You can help make sure our relationships stay visible. Stand up and be
counted — sign our petition to the Census Bureau now demanding that
our marriages be counted.
So, why go through all this trouble to pretend we don’t exist? A
Census Bureau official actually said that, “This is all about the
numbers. This is not about lifestyle or anything else.”
Lifestyle? Numbers? Is that what the Census Bureau thinks of our
This decision is a slap in the face to our community. The census may
seem trivial, but the count will be used by Congress and federal
agencies to distribute money, government resources and even
representation in Congress for a decade to come.
More importantly, it’s just the latest example of our own government
refusing to recognize the basic equality of our relationships to those
of any straight couple. And this time, we won’t stay silent. Tell the
Census Bureau that the time for these kinds of divisive policies is
Fortunately, it’s not too late for this decision to be overturned and
for the bureau to start on the long road to a wholly inclusive census.
With one stroke of the pen, President Obama can make sure our
marriages are counted. But it can only happen if we make sure our
voices are heard loud and clear today.
Everybody and every relationship should count in America; it's time
the census counts our marriages too.

Vehemently heterosexual dating site eHarmony never intended to let gay couples use its profile matching algorithms to find love, but New Jersey's attorney general made the decision for them: Either launch a gay-friendly site or face an anti-discrimination suit. And so the site, founded in 2000 by shrink Neil Clark Warren (yes, the guy in all the eHarmony ads) and proud sponsor of Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi's very gay unions, today launches its same-sex off-shoot: Compatible Partners.Now what I do not understand is why this site was need in the first place. I get the whole discrimination issue, but are we so desperate to find "true love" and fit in to this heterosexual society that we will now PAY a anti-gay company to do something that everyone is capable of doing for themselves?!! Geez homos go out and engage in the world (or at least you the sites that we already have and are pro-gay).

So recently one of the statues in front of the Bar Rouge on 16th street has gone missing. Now, in order for people not to notice it's missing the bar has hired people to stand in its place until they have had time to replace it. Guess who is one of those people?? Yours truly!!
It's a tough job but someone's gotta do it (and for $12 and hour who could pass it up?!)
So if you are passing by Scott circle on the weekends stop by and say hi.
