Homosexuals 'marry' in Massachusetts

Hundreds of homosexual couples in Massachusetts yesterday received the nation's first state-sanctioned marriage licenses, amid joyous celebrations, weddings and music.

Yesterday's events were a culmination of a three-year battle to legalize same-sex "marriage" in the state led by plaintiffs Hillary and Julie Goodridge

Massachusetts, the Netherlands, Belgium and three Canadian provinces are the only places in the world where homosexuals can legally "marry."

Then at the end:

This story is "based" in "part" on wire service reports.

(OK, I made that part up.)
