The Wedding We Attended On Saturday

My friend and Newsweek editor David Jefferson wrote a brilliant essay about marrying his partner, Jeff, on Saturday so as to get in under the wire if California voters decide on Nov. 4 to ban same-sex marriage. This was the wedding Miles and I attended; ours in 2007 was the first gay wedding David had been to.

You should take a moment to read this. I had no idea David was a descendant of another Jefferson, but holy cow does it work out well for him in writing this piece. And after you're done, forward it on to people you know in California, Arizona and Florida who are voting this year on the ability of people they don't know to enjoy stability and love.
