State Court of Appeals approves marriages between half-uncles and half-nieces

It's not often I get to post good news. This is a great thing, even if the argument relies on a eugenic justification. This kind of case is actually not that uncommon. American "incest" laws get used against immigrants from cultures with looser prohibitions, like the Hmong, sometimes invalidating their green card status.

("If government's only interest in marriage is who loves each other, [then] what logical stopping point is there?" Two words for you: consenting adults.)
