Justly Married

It's late and I should be in bed, but for some reason I am not. These pictures remind me of the moment when Gavin Newsom, briefly, empowered himself to bless same sex marriage ceremonies way back in 2004. It was a beautiful moment. I'm pretty sure I sent some flowers to those in line when it happened.

It was a radical act. Perhaps a radical act in service of a non-radical institution, but nonetheless. And not so many years later everybody knows that it's all inevitable, just a matter of precisely how and when.
