Maine, Stay!

Maine becomes the latest victim of the Mauve Hand's march through New England, as Gov. John Baldacci (D) signed a bill legalizing gay marriage. But, as always seems to be the case, the fight isn't over yet: If opponents can get 55,000 signatures, they can "suspend" the law until a referendum can be held.

I doubt we'll be able to keep it off the ballot, but maybe this time we can win the ensuing vote.

Oh Horrors! It's an epidemic!

I think Lavender is more apt for a legal/civil rights reference; Mauve tends to be used to talk about gays' cultural influence.
