SSA Won't Recognize Married Gays

All those marriages in San Francisco are beginning to have an effect. Wonder who had to make this call:
The Social Security Administration has told its offices nationwide not to accept marriage certificates from San Francisco as proof of identification for newlyweds looking to make name changes on Social Security cards.
Makes you wonder: who will start recognizing them. This has to be the beginning of a tidal wave.

As New Paltz, NY Green Party mayor, Jason West said, "What we're witnessing in America today is the flowering of the largest civil rights movement the country's had in a generation."

Twenty-five gay couples exchanged vows in that New York village yesterday.
