Towleroad: Montgomery County, Alabama Probate Court judge will begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples on Monday.

Okie Funk: Meanwhile, Oklahoma Republicans want to stop county clerks from issuing marriage licenses to anyone.

Angry Bear: The CBO and liberal economists did not get the impact of the 2013 “fiscal cliff” wrong.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
"Legal challenges to undue restrictions on abortion procedures do not seek to vindicate some generalized notion of privacy; rather, they center on a woman's autonomy to determine her life's course, and thus to enjoy equal citizenship stature." (Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, dissent in Gonzales v. Carhart, 2007)
