  •  Maine, too! (16+ / 0-)

    We just got the word that December 29 is the day here in Maine.

    Portland Mayor Michael Brennan said he will look into the possibility of opening City Hall on that Saturday, possibly at 12:01 a.m., for the city's -- and possibly the state's -- first same-sex marriage ceremony.

    "We just found out about this today, and we'll look into all the details and make a determination from there," Brennan said Monday afternoon. "We can't say for sure we'll be open on Dec. 29 or rule that out as a possibility."

    But whether it's Dec. 29 or Dec. 31, Brennan said he's certain of one thing: He wants to be there.

    "I'm going to be very pleased and happy when the first (same-sex couple) in the city of Portland gets to be married in a ceremony of their choosing," Brennan said. "Certainly this is a historic event. I think if Portland could be part of this historic event, we'd want to be."

    Yay, Maine!

    "Diversity is, in action, the sometimes painful awareness that other people, other races, other voices, other habits of mind have as much integrity of being, as much claim on the world as you do." William Chase
