Over the Weekend: Old School Tattoos, Prop 8 Protest

Posted By on Mon, Nov 17, 2008 at 7:00 AM

Good morning, St. Louis.

Here's what you may have missed over the weekend...

Prop 8 Protest On Saturday afternoon, between 500 and 1,000 people, depending on who you ask, gathered around the Old Courthouse on Broadway to protest the recent passage ban on same-sex marriage (Read "Prop 8 Protest Set for Saturday at Old Courthouse.")

For some Missourians who got married in California, it means their marriage now may be challenged in the California courts. Read "Prop 8 Leaves Some Missourians in Marital Limbo."
