Hey! One of the countries of my ancestors is doing the right thing!

Here I thought the New World was supposed to be ahead of the Old World on social issues, equality and such, but I guess I was wrong!

Scotland, from whence one of my ancestral families, the McEwens hailed, has announced that they are going to introduce a bill to make gay marriage legal!  Man, what a development!  I'd always seen Scotland as being kind of stuffy, conservative and stiff-necked.  (Well, besides being great distillers of  the nectar of the gods, Scotch!  ...and great fighters, and, well, I guess you can't be right about everything, can you?)

I am really stoked about that one!  Take that, bigots!
