  3. Thank you Governor O'Malley. If this survives the referendum, I will embarrass myself with tears of happiness and then get married to the man who has been my common law, live-in assistant for the past 23 years – if he will still have me.

    IF YOU ARE IN MARYLAND, START NOW-- tell everyone you know, at work, etc not to sign recall petitions.
    I lived through the mormon-created, catholic backed TV ads in California that scared the public into voting to remove marriage rights

  9. Something is very wrong with a system that passes laws in the legislature and then mob rule in the form of ballot referenda is allowed to take over and thwart enactment of a law until an election is held. Why have legislatures, why make laws? Makes no sense. Seems these republicans and blue-dog democrats whot caucus with them believe in anarchy, no respect for the rule of law.

  10. Agree with ROBERT IN NYC.
    Civil rights should never be put up to a referendum. Ever.
    But, if this is going to referendum, we ALL need to fight for our rights, no matter where we live. We must keep the momentum going to pass equality laws in all states, and to make sure DOMA is overturned.
