Today is the 50th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s ruling in Brown v. Board of Education that racial segregation in public schools was unconstitutional.

Today is also the first day that gays and lesbians can legally marry in this country.

There really are a few brief, shining moments during which this country can get things right. I don’t yet know how I’m going to celebrate today, but rest assured it will involve ice cream and sex.

    Why would gays wanna marry lesbians?

    Shouldn’t it be that “Today is also the first day that men can legally marry men and women can legally marry women”.

  2. Ice cream and sex together? Now that’s hot!

    You know, this is the first time I’ve noticed: Did you misspell “Breakfast” on your sign when you were six or in your “about me” section more recently?
