Null and void

The California Supreme Court has annulled all the gay marriages performed in San Francisco earlier this year on technical grounds. However (and this is notable) it has not addressed the wider issue of the clash between the state constitution (which outlaws discrimination) and the proposition which defined marriage in heterosexual terms only. That issue goes before a lower court next month, so there's still hope for a just decision.

And if not, well, I guess California gays can always take their "pink dollar" to a state which respects them, like Massachusetts.
