I posted an ad on craigslist like any other hopeful person, asking for a chance to get my feet wet and experience the world of work. I signed off with "No job too big or too small.

In Washington, D.C., the City Council there has agreed to recognize same-sex marriages performed outside our nation's capital. The U.S. Congress has jurisdiction over D.C.'s laws and has 30 days to review them. If Congress does nothing, the bill will become law automatically.
