Marriage equality becomes a reality today

CT Blogger posted this video from earlier today, when the first same-sex couples in the state were allowed to be married. It's a great day to celebrate the triumph of equality over the forces of discrimination.

It’s been more than 10 hours since gay marriage became legal in Connecticut. My wife and I are eating Cheetos while carefully monitoring any new threats, strains, or damage to our heterosexual marriage of 19 years. We’re hooked up to electrocardiograms, wrapped in blood-pressure cuffs, wired to lie detectors, and tightly gripping the electrodes on our E-Meters.

So far – nada. Bubkis. We’re still hopelessly in love. Go figure.

And the kids seem fine too.

Glad to hear it!

Our 18th anniversary is this Friday, and I'm hoping we can hold on for two more days against the onslaught of marriage disintegration that's supposed to take place. We're keeping our fingers crossed!

Speaking of E-meters, somehow I got on the Scientology tele-marketing list. When I picked up the phone they asked why I hadn't been to their church since 1968. Apparently they had someone with my name suckered in back then. I told them I was 9 years old at the time, and after giving them my opinion of their phony religion, I asked them to remove my number from their database.

I haven't heard back from them since.

I'm divorced...I've been nervously checking from the other side of the coin to any threat to the sanctity of divorce far, so good. Like cockroaches, they seem to survive ANYTHING.

Hey --

Why do the Rethugs, when talking about re-invent themselves, always talk about reaching out to the "Sam's Club voter"? Is Costco solidly Democratic? ANd where the hell does BJ's stand on all this?

I don't know, but I'll bet Costco and BJs aren't all that broken up about being left off of the Republican noise machine. They don't want to get sucked down with that sinking ship.
