Happy Anniversary!

It's March 3rd, 2005. For anyone unfamiliar with the significance of that date, it's been a year since Multnomah County started issuing marriage licenses for same-sex marriages. As I noted last year, I'm mostly cheering from the sidelines, as it affects the lives of my friends more than it does me directly. So I won't say much about it, except to point out that a friend of mine is writing a book about her experience.
An excerpt is on her website.

Actually, I will say something else: I fervently wish that history will record these marriages as the leading edge of a major cultural civil-rights paradigm shift, on par with women's sufferage and racial desegregation. And that I'll be sending anniversary greetings to my friends every March 3rd, for the rest of my life.
