Benton County Brilliance
Sometimes I forget that many, many others are watching Oregon as it works through same sex marriages. This morning I was pleasantly surprise to see this on a blog.
See How You Like It
This is brilliant: PORTLAND, Oregon (Reuters) -- In a new twist in the battle over same-sex marriage roiling the United States, a county in Oregon has banned all marriages -- gay and heterosexual -- until the state decides who can and who cannot wed. 6:38 AM

I was also annoyed with the Reuters dateline. I just plain disagree with having an incorrect dateline. The "county in Oregon" they speak of is Benton County. Portland is in Multnomah County. Thankfully, the Oregon media outlets correctly list Corvallis as the dateline.
