In Writing

Today I landed in my adopted second city, San Francisco, for ALA, the annual librarian convention.  I dragged my neat little wheelie bag on to the Air Train and fired up Google News.  There I saw it: while I was dozing during my very early transcontinental flight, gay marriage became… just marriage.  And our country took another step toward becoming a more equitable and just place.

It just so happens that the conference is scheduled during Gay Pride weekend.  I get to be in one of the bastions of gay rights during what will undoubtedly be one of the biggest celebrations of this great civil rights victory.  I feel lucky!  And so overjoyed for the millions of people who fought so long for this moment.
