Arrivederci DOMA


I want to say something thoughtful and profound about today.  Lofty words and evocations of past struggles and triumphs.

I want to try to cast things into some kind of historical perspective, reflecting on how we got here, and what this means going forward.

I want to caution against excessive optimism, since the forces that brought about that which was defeated today do not intend to go quietly.

But really, a bunch of people — including more than I few I know — have a little bit more happiness today than they had yesterday.

What I really want to do is let them have their moment.  My words can’t add anything to what they must be feeling.

So congratulations.  Your long walk took several big steps towards being finished today.  And I”m glad you’re closer to taking that walk with whomever you want to.
