    It could also have been designed to battle invisible leprechauns, but as with most science, we should put stock in what's likely, not what's possible.

    Georgetown is in DC. Right across the river from Rosslyn.

    I stand corrected. :S stupid mistake. It was shoddy research, I tried to verify and looked up the Georgetown that IS in VA, lol, which is nearer to Richmond.

    I thought that was the though? You know. A mostly symbolic proclamation of the fact that after everybody has eaten cake - the couple will go make some babies? What exactly is the point of marriage if not making sure most of the people you know - know that the person next to you is the provider of DNA for your breed?
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Lots of people have claimed that. Perhaps not on this thread, but they have. I don't know why we'd be discussing it otherwise. In any event, I made a comment, ignore it if you like.

    Jeez, people, I even posted a map.

    Georgetown (the one everyone knows) - in DC.
    Arlington - in Va.

    And btw, Rosslyn is a neighborhood of Arlington.

    In any case, Congress should keep their noses out of DC's affairs. No other government in the country is subject to congressional veto (a body in which DC has no representation, I might add). Gay marriage in DC has no impact on the federal government, and as such Congress should just let the people of DC decide what is legal in DC. Our mayor and city council - who were elected by the people of DC, unlike Congress - have made their decision.
