“Equal Means Equal”

That’s how Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick put it when he signed the measure repealing the 1913 law which was the final impediment to same-sex couples from other states marrying in Massachusetts! The repeal of the 1913 law (which most likely was originally enacted to prevent interracial marriage) took effect immediately.

The tourism slogan may be “Virginia Is For Lovers”. But imagine all the lovely places in Massachusetts folks could get married and then honeymoon!

Clear, simple, pithy.
Too bad the obvious has to be repeated so often!
