Massachusetts, I love you.
Today the STATE of Mass (not a random couple, but the actual state) filed to sue the US Government over DOMA (The Defense of Marriage Act: refuses same sex couples federal benefits and allows states to not recognize legal same sex marriage preformed in other states.)
A CA couple filed a similar suit a while ago and the Obama Administration said it should be dismissed.

Once again, I love you Massachusetts!
