DeEvening Links: Day of celebration

Sorry, Marylanders, we beat you. (Patrick Semansky - AP)
I noted a somber anniversary this morning. Today also marks another, happier occasion: It’s two years today since the District started recognizing gay marriages. The latest stats, via AP: “A spokeswoman for the D.C. Superior Court says approximately 5,700 gay and straight couples applied to marry between March 2011 and March 2012. That’s compared with 6,600 in the first year same-sex marriage was legal and 3,100 the year before when only heterosexual couples were allowed to marry in the city.”
