When the news came down yesterday that an Arkansas judge struck down the state's constitutional amendment limiting marriage to straight couples, many of us doubted that marriages would take place any time soon.

Well, I am happy to eat crow less than 12 hours later. Congratulations to Kristen Seaton and Jennifer Rambo, the first same-sex couple to receive a marriage license anywhere in the Bible Belt. I'm proud to be a Razorback and an Arkie today.
