Come in! Come in!

"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a Hope-er, a Pray-er, a Magic Bean buyer; if you're a pretender, come sit by my fire. For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!" -- Shel Silverstein

10 Couples

The Public Interest and the ACLU has begun a campaign to work for Same Sex Marriage.

Their initiative is called "10 Couples" which features extraordinary stories about the ordinary lives of Delia and Persephone, Dick and Bob, Hattie and Amorie, Eric and Stan, Jan and Lauren, Heather and Carol, Laura and Fawn, Octavia and Deborah, Jon and Robert, Steve and Mark.

The "10 Couples Website" reports that "many Americans are conflicted on the issue of marriage for same-sex couples. While they believe marriage for same-sex couples is inevitable, many are hesitant to embrace this change because they believe society is changing too rapidly. But Americans want to be fair, and they don't think gay and lesbian couples should be treated unfairly."

They maintain that "the number one thing we can do to make people more comfortable supporting marriage for same-sex couples is to show them the many ways that lesbians and gay men are harmed when they are denied protection for their families."

So, send your family and friends to

Thank you.

I'd love to send a couple I know, and have them talk about their 20-year marriage, but they would both lose their jobs in organizations they have served faithfully for over 20 years.

Sigh. They can't be out until it's safe to be out, and it won't be safe till more people come least there are more all the time.
