On the bright side, Maryland will recognize gay marriages from other states.

Another spectacular cave-in is barely visible in the “What’s News” section of WSJ”: Obama has a scaled back HCR – before even trying out the “daring one”

President Barack Obama will use a bipartisan summit Thursday to push for sweeping health-care legislation, but if that fails to generate enough support the White House has prepared the outlines of a more modest plan.
