A local surprise: The DC council just passed a measure to recognize same-sex marriages performed in "other" states. Of course, DC is not actually a state, so Congress has 30 days to approve it. As with the recent almost-possibly-still DC Voting Rights Act, this means that Congress will have a chance to play to their pet agendas and ensure that DC residents are not given a chance at self-governance. If tea-bagging hadn't been appropriated, I'd suggest we all take our tea out to the river.
In less political news, the ALGOSENSORS 09 deadline is midnight PST today. It'll be held in conjunction with ICALP in Rhodes, Greece.
