Maryland Fails to do the Right Thing

In an apparent concession that they didn't have the necessary votes on the floor, the Maryland House of Delegates recommitted the bill which would legalize gay marriage, dashing hopes that this year we'd join civilized society in extended equal marriage rights to all couples.

Apparently, there is some murmers that this is merely a stalling action to try and rustle up more votes, but the majority consensus is that the bill is dead for the year. Governor Martin O'Malley (D), who had pledged to sign the bill into law, has expressed his disappointment.
