You can read all about it on other blogs.  What I want to share is that little teeny Muskegon MI, my home town, is doing something wonderful tomorrow -- just hours after the news hit the airwaves.  

The Harbor Unitarian Universalist Congregation (yes, leave it to those commie Unitarians) are planning a Groupon.  Reverend Bill Freeman and County Clerk Nancy Waters will be on hand to officiate and issue marriage licenses, respectively, to any couple who wants to show up and get hitched.

I'm planning to be there (with bells on) to throw some confetti and toast the happy couples.  Hoping to get into a couple of fistfights at the reception.  

Good on ya, Muskegon.

UPDATE:  48 couples were married today in Muskegon at the HUUC before the stay was ordered by the appeals court.  Whether the ban is upheld or not, folks from all over West Michigan proved that their time has surely come.  A great vibe; I was glad to be a part of it.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
