Is Maryland next?

In Maryland, the Baltimore Sun writes about the recognition of same sex marriages:

But there is one inescapable reason to do it: Because it's the right thing to do. Same-sex couples and their children should no longer be treated as second-class citizens. Interim measures the state has adopted - changes in how the inheritance tax is applied to domestic partners, for instance - are woefully inadequate.

Maryland is a progressive state, and voter registration numbers suggest it is growing more so all the time. Same-sex marriage is nothing less than a civil rights issue, and citizens of the Free State have historically favored equality - if their leaders have the courage to rally them to the cause.
