Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler said on Thursday same-sex couples can begin to marry in the state on Jan. 1.
He wrote in a 19-page opinion that clerks can begin to issue marriage licenses to gays and lesbians as soon as Dec. 6, as long as they don’t take effect until the same-sex marriage law takes effect at the start of the new year.
- Yeah, good luck with that, Jon:
Jon Huntsman said Friday that if the GOP can stay away from “fringe issues” and instead focuses on bread-and-butter Republican principles, the party will be better for it.
- Click it if you dare: Two hate-mongering, homophobic bigots debate how to handle teh gays.
Tomb raiders have dug up more than 100 graves at a cemetery in Benin since Saturday for what authorities suspect is a black-market trade in human organs and skulls for voodoo ritual fetishes. [...]
Body parts of humans and rare animals are prized by some people in central Africa for their supposed supernatural powers, and are used in occult ceremonies. Traffickers often obtain human remains from grave robbers, but a recent spate of killings has also been linked to the gruesome trade.
- Bo Obama is featured in a holiday (WAR!) video from the White House.

- Attention holiday shoppers! The Netroots Nation Holiday Bazaar is now open for business. Here's your chance to bid on dozens of handcrafted items, created by members of this very Great Orange Community, while also helping Netroots Nation do the great work that they do. Oh, and there will be chocolate. Lots and lots of chocolate. Get out your virtual auction paddle and go forth and bid!
- On today's Kagro in the Morning show, Joan McCarter and Greg Dworkin talk "fiscal cliff," the future of Medicare, and reveal the Simpson-Bowles non-report's endorsement of single payer. Also, why do the CEOs behind "Fix the Debt," ordinarily busy raiding their companies' pension funds for bonuses, now want to undermine the one pension fund they currently can't touch? Hmm... gee! On filibuster reform: which Senators are still holdouts, and just where did this reform coalition come from, anyway? The answer just might put a little spring in your step today.
