News from the county where I grew up:
NEW PALTZ, N.Y. (Reuters) - The battle over gay marriage in the United States spread on Friday to a small New York town whose mayor began marrying same-sex couples in the first such ceremonies in the state....

From the Kingston Daily Freeman:
The state Health Department says New York's Domestic Relations Law does not allow the issuance of marriage licenses to same-sex couples and that New York courts have recognized only marriages between men and women as valid.

"A municipal clerk who issues a marriage license outside these guidelines, and any person who solemnizes such a marriage, would be violating state law and subject to the penalties in law," the department said in a prepared statement late Thursday.

From a reader letter to the Daily Freeman: "Naturally speaking, if I want to keep the wheel on my car in place, I do not secure it by engaging a bolt with a bolt, or a nut with a nut. It requires engaging a bolt with a nut to keep it secure and in place."

It seems my understanding of how long intercourse ought to last is deficient.
