Izzy's Baby, can you hear me?


"LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - A law passed this year allows Arkansans of any age even infants to marry if their parents agree, and the governor may have to call a special session to fix the mistake, lawmakers said Friday.

The legislation was intended to establish 18 as the minimum age to marry but also allow pregnant teenagers to marry with parental consent, bill sponsor Rep. Will Bond said. An extraneous "not" in the bill, however, allows anyone who is not pregnant to marry at any age if the parents allow it."

Silly Rav! One's not born gay; one chooses to be.
