May, at times, include standing out in the rain, unable to cross the street in either direction without drawing the ire of thoroughly grumpy Metro PD (also soaked from standing out in the rain far longer than you), waiting for a motorcade of Someone Far More Important Than You to get its collective asses out of your damn way so you can go home.

There's some sort of deep lesson in civic responsibility, national pride, personal humility and patience in here somewhere.  At some point, when I'm dry again, I may give a damn.

Or five?  Or possibly six, depending on how you count these things.  Maine's governor signed the legislature's bill legalizing  same-sex marriage today.  http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/05/06/maine.same.sex.marriage/index.html

The counting gets a little abstract depending on how you count New Hampshire, which permits civil unions but not marriage, and Vermont, which has apparently passed a law legalizing same sex marriages which won't take effect until September.   

I'm actually starting to wonder if Congress will override the Washington City Council bill recognizing same-sex marriage.  I'd been betting that it almost certainly would, but I'm beginning to wonder if it has a chance.  That would amuse me to no end.
