  •  Good morning! (19+ / 0-)

    Cheers on a rainy Tuesday.
    A quick note to 'Janet M'....honey, honey, honey....it's not a special privilege to have city hall doors open at 12:01a, cause certain folks have been waiting for, ummm I dunno, since forever, to get an equal opportunity in marriage.  Try waiting since the beginning of time for something Janet, once you get it, it's not a special privilege, it's a celebration....and good on Portland City Hall for responding to it by....celebrating early!
    Have a wonderful day everyone....
    Cheers to you all!!!!

    •  Lilyvt, I thought so, too. I thought that (8+ / 0-)

      opening City Hall like that for LGBT folks to get marriage licenses was a caring, and romantic, gesture. If they were to do the same thing on Valentine's Day for all citizens, I doubt she'd have issues.
      "Special Treatment", to the un-thinking, is anything they're not used to witnessing. Janet M, I can promise you, is a WASP whose never had any prejudice targeted at her in her life. Her reality is THE reality and she sees no reason to consider otherwise. She doesn't even know that living in a vacuum sucks.

      I believe in democracy, civil liberties, and the rule of law. That makes me a liberal, and I’m proud of it. - Paul Krugman
