1. Federal Judge Drags Michigan Kicking And Screaming Into 21st Century—Gay Marriage Ban Struck Down

Michigan began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples today, one day after a federal judge struck down a ten-year-old ban on gay marriage on the grounds that it violated the U.S. Constitution. Gov. Rick Snyder will appeal the decision, stating, through a spokesperson, that he has an 'obligation' to respect voters' decision to keep the state on the wrong side of history.
