Proven Wrong

I'm a big enough person to admit when I'm wrong.

Anyone that has known me for any significant period of time has probably heard me dis Connecticut, my home state, time and again. It's a big suburb. It's boring. Much of the state is close minded. It's boring. I'm sure there are worse states, but I'm not familiar enough with any of them to speak knowledgeably about the subject. Suffice it to say, I've always thought Connecticut to have few redeeming qualities and suck a lot.

Today, Connecticut proved me wrong. (at least a little) The Connecticut Supreme Court ruled that under Connecticut law, gay marriage is not illegal. Therefore, gay marriage is now legal in Connecticut!

I have a theory that this may just be to one-up New York and their decision to recognize other state's marriages, but I'll take what I can get.

On a related note, Jefferson sent this to me today:

I had a feeling you'd comment on that as soon as I saw the NYTimes 'breaking news alert' email in my inbox hehe.

And that picture brings me inexplicable joy.
