Our gym friends Rod and Roger were first in line at City Hall last week when the decision was announced -- for a few minutes they thought they were going to be married that day, then hopes were dashed by the judge's initial stay. Yesterday's news that the 9th Circuit will stay the judgment further while it takes up the appeal is a bit disappointing, in that we were considering getting a marriage license ourselves since the time finally appeared ripe; now we wait until December, or possibly until next December if the Supreme Court accepts a further appeal.

Rod and Roger were interviewed about their feelings, and like our own [livejournal.com profile] rootbeer1 and [livejournal.com profile] qbear are becoming go-to guys for the media; they've been quoted in the New York Times, etc.

I personally hope the appeal goes to the Supremes and results in a finding outlawing sex discrimination in marriage and all of its associated rights and responsibilities throughout the land. We can dream, anyway.

But for now, the Netherlands and its flowers are safe.

I ran into them last night as I consumed a luxurious, very low-priced, fabulous cocktail last night. They were still very excited about the whole thing, although Rob lamented, “The local TV people have our phone number now.”

The Netherlands isn't safe. It's more a case of having bought time.
