New York Legalizes Same-Sex Marriage

The New York Senate tonight passed the controversial Marriage Equality Act after the crucial 32nd, and 33rd, votes were secured.

New York thus becomes the 6th state to legalize same-sex marriage, with the other five being Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, and Iowa. (Same-sex marriage is also legal in the District of Columbia.)

NYC Traffic Safety

By summer 2010, the expansion of bike lanes in NYC exposed a clash of long-standing bad habits — such as pedestrians jaywalking, cyclists running red lights, and motorists plowing through crosswalks.

The video is part of a larger campaign I created called ‘3-Way Street’. Please see blog.ronconcocacola.com for more details.
