    It’s not the end. Maybe it’s the beginning of the end or possibly even the middle of the end, but not the end.

    Here’s a nice story about the first same-sex married couple on New York City: http://www.cnn.com/2011/US/07/24/new.york.same.sex.marriage/index.html?eref=mrss_igoogle_cnn

    I’m waiting for someone to say that this union of a 76-year-old and an 84-year-old isn’t a real marriage because it won’t produce children.Report
