A federal judge has ruled that Alaska’s ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional. Marriages are expected to start immediately in Alaska.
“The court finds that Alaska’s ban on same-sex marriage and refusal to recognize same sex marriages lawfully entered in other states is unconstitutional as a deprivation of basic due process and equal protection principles under the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution,” U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Burgess wrote in a order in the case Hamby v. Parnell, released Sunday.
The Hamby suit was filed in May by five same-sex couples. It challenged the state’s constitutional amendment limiting marriage to one man and one woman, approved by voters in 1998.
This makes…28? 29? I can’t even keep track anymore! Alaska, go get married!

Over 300 farms and two towns have completely or partially gone under water in a slowly rising sea on the prairie. This was a scouting trip for a possible more comprehensive project.
