In the past six months, many New Yorkers have had to learn to swallow their pride. Instead of entertaining bidding wars for their homes, they’re ready to throw in the All-Clad pans and the family dog for an offer. Instead of bragging about their trailblazing governor, they’ve watching his career implode. And instead of living at the center of the financial world, they’re living at what seems to have been proven the center of financial incompetence.
With this week came a new challenge in humility: swallowing their gay pride. As of a year or so ago, those so inclined could at least brag that New York agencies recognized all gay marriages legalized elsewhere. As of late March, they could take heart in living in a state in which the major elected officials — governor, both United States senators, attorney general and state comptroller — support gay marriage.Then came the one-two combo in the past week: Iowa and Vermont beat New York to the punch, legalizing gay marriage while supporters in the New York State Senate are still struggling to find enough votes to ensure its passage.
