      The real question is whether or not we should allow people of the same gender to get married, not the origins of the institution.  Marriage has evolved over the years.  Who's to say any particular point in that evolution is the "right" one?

      Kagan's right.  If marriage has been an state issue for as long as we've been a country, what is the justification and role for DOMA?  If anything, in terms of American history, DOMA should be called the AOMA, for trying to usurp state jurisdiction.
