    I found a Georgetown, Maryland reference. I thought GT was part of DC...at least it seemed that way last time I was there. I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt in Georgetown, though.

    And obviously unless she lived in Georgetown pre-1790.

    Pretty much ever law in every state is passed this way, not directly by referendum. Why should this be any different?

    Arlington is not part of the District. Not since 1846.

    psst....It's different because it's about teh gayz. And we all know tradition and protocol matter until it comes to Adam and Steve sucking dick in their own bedroom. Then it's "at any cost" to save Baby Jeebus from learning about sex ed from unwed teenage mothers who were kidnapped and impregnated by homo Hitler on 9-11.

    Or whatever their justification for stomping on the Constitution is this week.

    There is a Georgetown in Maryland, but it's nowhere near the Georgetown in DC. That Georgetown used to be a separate town but is now just a neighborhood of DC.

    Yes, the wonderful irony is that the DC Human Rights commission ruled that the law forbid a referendum on this - because you can't vote against human rights.

    It's sick that black churches have been out front in opposing this too, they've lost alot of their credibility on civil rights.

    This should clear things up.



    As you can tell, Arlington and the old part of Alexandria were once part of DC, but went back to Virginia in the 1800s. Georgetown is in DC.

    You know though...in California, they weren't even "out front" on it until all this money from Utah got injected into the system and this huge campaign to bring out their vote on prop 8 was instigated.

    I wonder how vote would have gone if Obama hadn't been running. I wonder how much they would have cared to come out and vote on prop 8 if they weren't already energized to turn out for the Obama vote.

    Congress has to approve the District's budgets, so it could simply declare that the District must change this law or recieve no money, regardless of what it is spent on. Not that it will.
