DOWN SOUTH….The voters of California might be able to ban gay weddings, but they can’t ban gay wedding receptions, can they? So that’s where I was yesterday, down in San Diego at a reception for my sister-in-law and her partner, who squeezed in under the wire and got married before Prop 8 passed. Huzzah! Needless to say, the republic seems to have survived the event so far.

So everyone join me in congratulating Ginny and Cindy. Huzzah again! I’ll spare you the picture of them feeding each other pieces of the wedding cake, but I will show you the eye-catching cake itself, which was designed by a good friend of theirs (it was lemon flavored and delicious). As you can guess, a lovely time was had by all.

THE END...

of our fiscal year is Thursday, June 30, and we have a much larger fundraising gap than we can easily manage with only days left to go.

Right now is no time to come up short: If you value the hard-hitting, democracy-protecting, justice-advancing journalism you get from Mother Jones, please help us keep charging as hard as we possibly can with a much-needed and much-appreciated donation today.
