My sentiments exactly.
Breaking Same-Sex Marriage News of the Day: Maryland today became the eigth state to legalize same-sex marriage after the state’s marriage equality bill passed in the state Senate by a vote of 25 to 22.
The state House passed the bill last week, and Gov. Martin O’Malley has already vowed to sign it.
If the legislation avoids a challenge from opponants who want a referendum on same-sex marriage — a scenario which remains uncertain — same-sex couples can begin tying the knot in January.
If, however, the issue does get added to November’s ballot, the result is currently unclear. The latest polls show Maryland voters evenly split on same-sex marriage.
So, so proud of my state and the progress it’s made.

I spotted this poor lady initially on Thanksgiving Day looking for work as I was leaving the York Road Shopping Center in Baltimore (http://g.co/maps/2ymdz). I felt so helpless and guilty because she wasn’t asking for money, but for a steady job. It was beyond me. It was especially sad because this was someone who should be enjoying retirement, but can’t.
The next day, I thought to take a picture of her and her sign to post it online to have her exposed to more people. When I went to find her though, she wasn’t there.
I was in the area today, and coincidentally, there she was: Still asking for help as cars were exiting the plaza. I finally approached her and asked if I could snap a picture so I can put her ad online in the hopes that someone out there would be able to find something for her.
So, here it is.
If you know someone looking for a seamstress, will you please tell that person about Gail? If you yourself can help, please reach out to her. Gail can be contacted at 443-810-0561. If you can’t help, at least share this post so that someone following you can.
I hate that this is in my town and I can’t do anything for her. I hope and pray someone is need of a seamstress, sees this and takes a chance on her.
