Christine Gets Married

It is most likely, as the Times reported, the highest-profile same-sex marriage to date.

Christine Quinn, the Speaker of the City Council (basically second only to the Mayor in the New York City government power structure) married her longtime partner Kim Catullo.

Congratulations to both of them!  While I think the legalization of same-sex marriage is not the direct route to equality that some believe it is, I am glad we have it.  Given the current social and legal structure, it's the best we can do. And, if Christine and Kim want to be married, I'm glad they've done it.  I can only wish them happiness.
