Romney vetoes stem cell bill; SJC rejects last-ditch effort to undo gay marriage ruling

Two utterly unsurprising developments in today's news.  First, Governor Romney delivered on his promise to veto the stem cell research bill.  As we've noted, the bill passed the legislature by veto-proof margins in both houses, and veto overrides are expected as early as next week.

Second, the Supreme Judicial Court rejected what everyone expected would be a futile attempt by Catholic Action League executive director C.J. Doyle to halt gay marriage until ... well, we're not actually sure exactly what Doyle wanted.  In any case, he didn't get it.  This was a pointless court proceeding - there was no way the Court was going to undo what it has done in this area (and today's opinion, unlike Goodridge and the subsequent Opinion of the Justices, was unanimous).

So gay marriage and stem cell research will both go forward in this Commonwealth.  Keep your eye on whether the sky falls....
