I Heart New York
Spending a Friday evening watching legislative “debate”, and I’m using that term very loosely, probably isn’t something I’ve ever done before last night. If I did do it before last night, I’ve successfully repressed the memories with good cause.
The outcome of last night’s New York Senate session however was fascinating and exhilarating. I wasn’t sure until very near the end if I was watching a train wreck or photo-finish win. For me it was Senator Grisanti’s speech explaining his vote that convinced me it would be the latter.
The man gets it. Marriages like mine and Randy’s do not hurt either his own marriage or his faith. The question is about the legal rights and obligations of citizens, not who will call him a flip-flopper, and no politician should be so afraid of evolving they become an impediment to progress.
