While we rarely mix politics and our blog, we couldn't keep our yappers shut about this one! A HUGE shout out to President Obama for finally declaring his support for gay marriage. It seems like such a no-brainer - if two consenting adults love each and choose to go the marriage route, let them. Plain and simple.
Specky would also like to take this moment to wish her brother, D, and his husband, M, an early happy anniversary. They are coming up on three years of marriage (tied the knot in London since M is a Brit and Prop 8 threw a wrench in the plan to wed in CA). They are the best couple she knows. It's hard for her to hear the uproar of ignorance and hate toward gay marriage that accompanied Obama's declaration. Specky cannot help but think that if only the naysayers could meet D and M, they would change their tune. Silly, she knows, but so is limiting marriage to just being between a man and a woman for goodness sake.
