. . . no rioting in the streets, no Supreme Court stay at the last minute.  In fact, it was mildly difficult to find an online mention of the fact that today, the District of Columbia began taking applications for marriage licenses for same sex couples.  Apparently, there's a 72 waiting period to process the applications and issue the licenses, so the first ceremonies won't take place until next week, but the new law went into effect today, without fuss or (much) ceremony.  I find that. . . somewhat satisfying, actually.
