Much ado about nothing much

Mexico City has seen 271 gay and lesbian couples get married since the capital enacted the first law in Latin America explicitly allowing same-sex marriages.

The city government says there have been 142 marriages between men and 129 between women in the four months since the law went took effect March 4.

In 4 months, in one of the world's largest cities, there were 271 gay marriages, approximately 2 or 3 per day, during the initial post legalization rush.

It amazes me how our politicians and public intellectuals waste so much time and effort fighting things with such few real world implications. If you want to fight gay marriage, legalize gay marriage, and after the initial rush, there won't be that many gay marriages.
