U.S. Census bureau will count same-gender loving couple

Well, according to yesterday's Washington Post, the US Census Bureau will count same sex couples in the 2010 Census.  They did count same-sex couples in the 2000, but the Bush administration enforced the usage of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) to prohibit the releasing of the numbers since they aren't "officially" recognized couples.  With the 2010 Census they will be counted and released since the Obama administration gave the A'OK to count and hopefully (if Obama gets re-elected) released in 2012 or 2013.
