May there be much champagne

Congratulations to Phyllis Lyon and Del Martin, who got married at 5:01pm today in San Francisco. They've been together for more than fifty years. It's about damn time the state let them make it official.

My home state and my adopted home state, Massachusetts and California: the only civilized states in this entire frustrating country. But I'll be grumpy about that later. For now I'll just confess that the Chronicle article made me a little weepy.
I have to say, when I saw the announcement that George Takai and his partner Brad were getting married, I got very weepy.

Mostly I'm looking forward to my own marriage being recognized again.
Takai gets instant love from me. He just seems to have been a decent guy his whole life. (Also, I continue to think the Adventures of Captain Sulu would have been an awesome Trek series.)
