New York Senate adjourns special session without marriage vote

To almost nobody's surprise, the New York State Senate adjourned its latest special session yesterday without voting on the marriage bill. Governor David Paterson announced the proposed legislation was the first item on an ever-growing list of things on which Senators have failed to vote since the coup took place more than two weeks ago. One question that emerged during yesterday's session, however, was the legality of any approved legislation without the state Assembly in session. One source has indicated a vote is possible early next week, but in the meantime, the mess continues...

On a much happier note, the second issue of the Fire Island News hits the beach later today. The weather has, for those of you not in New York, absolutely dreadful over the last couple of weeks. The meteorologists have promised, however, temperatures in the 80s for the next few days with little threat of rain outside of a stray thunderstorm tomorrow. Praise the Lord!

Attached is a clip of the beach somewhere between Davis Park and Water Island I shot a couple of weeks ago. Let's hope both the government in Albany and the weather improve...
