Quote of the Day

"There is no reason to delay further when no opposition has been presented to this Court and committed gay and lesbian couples have already suffered from the denial of their fundamental right to marry."—U.S. District Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman, in her ruling issued today which instructs Cook County, Illinois, to begin issuing licenses immediately instead of forcing same-sex couples to wait until June.

The Cook County Clerk's office at the Daley Center in downtown Chicago will remain open two extra hours today to accommodate all the couples who are eager to apply for marriage licenses.

All the blubs forever!
