Yesterday, after the repulsive New York Court of Appeals decision that E.S. and I don’t have a constitutional right to get married, I actually thought for a long time about going to law school and becoming a lawyer so I could take a more active role in forcing our government to be less stupid.

Then I thought, oh, hell, I should just run for public office and take an even more active role than that.

Then I considered some of the things I’ve written on this blog and thought, no, really, law school should do it.

Then I went to sleep and woke up today and realized that I am a sane person, so instead I just called the Empire State Pride Agenda and left a message asking them how I can volunteer.

    Good choice. As we discussed when you were in Chicago you must avoid law school at all costs. Otherwise, you’ll end up like me wanting to commit acts of atrocity when half million dollar gay divorce deals are riding on the return of $20 hair clippers.

    Good for you! The Pride Agenda is a wonderful organization. It’s too bad the Court didn’t fulfill their constitutional duty to ensure equal access to what they conceded was the “fundamental right” of marriage, but I guess we have to look on the bright side and hope for positive action from Albany. That way, at least, no one will be able to say gay marriage was “forced” on us by “activist judges.” And if anyone can shame even this pathetically intransigent group of lawmakers into action, the Pride Agenda can.
