A piece in the Times today reminded me that I meant to thank the four republican senators who voted for same-sex marriage. It’s one thing (and a good thing) to do the right thing when you have a lot of support. It’s quite another when a lot of people are against you and you’re putting your career at risk. So thank you Senators Mark J. Grisanti, James S. Alesi, Roy J. McDonald and Stephen M. Saland.
Today is a better Fourth of July thanks to you and everyone else who worked towards the passage of this bill. We still have a long way to go, but we’re in a better position to celebrate the freedom of America when we do what we can to make sure ALL our citizens have access to the same rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
