It may be moving even more quickly than anyone thought. Unless SCOTUS intervenes, same-sex marriages will commence in Virginia on Thursday.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/08/14/va-gay-marriage-ban/14068365/

(I expect SCOTUS will stay the ruling before then.)

Meanwhile, I'm late with this, but after a long, unbroken string of court victories, the marriage equality movement has suffered its first defeat since the Windsor ruling, via a Tennessee state judge:

http://time.com/3101571/tennessee-same-sex-marriage-rulings/

(This was bound to happen. I don't think it's going to have much impact on the general judicial trend.)
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

As long as we don't move past the 1860s or so.

You know, embracing a bit of the reconstruction era wouldn't be that bad. :P

Nah, the juleps were fresher beforehand. You wouldn't believe the decrease in mint quality over the (Andrew) Johnson administration...

Given the temper tantrum thrown by "heritage" groups in my county when the local government said no, you can't fly the Confederate flag from federal flagpoles...
Maker, though the darkness comes upon me,
I shall embrace the light. I shall weather the storm.
I shall endure.
What you have created, no one can tear asunder.
