Ann Arbor native, Jill Carroll, was released today. She was not harmed in any way, never even threatened, aside from killing her translator and holding her captive for almost 4 months.
According to today's Chicago Tribune, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court has upheld a law (from 1913) forbidding nonresident couples from marrying in that state if their home state does not recognize that marriage. Which limits gay marriage in this country to Massachusetts. Honestly, I wish I could say something even vaguely intelligent on this. But I can't. All I can do is hang my head in shame.
