I was somewhat disheartened to read the following news:
California’s Supreme Court on Thursday nullified the nearly 4,000 same-sex marriages that San Francisco sanctioned this spring, ruling that the city did not have the authority to take such action in defiance of state law.
I had hoped that these same-sex marriages marked the אתחלתא דגאולה, the beginning of the Redemption. After all, in the haftara of Nachamu, which we lained about two weeks back, is a description of the situation at the end of days, and it states (Yeshayahu 40:4):
כָּל-גֶּיא יִנָּשֵׂא

Oh well...
