DOWN SOUTH….The voters of California might be able to ban gay weddings, but they can’t ban gay wedding receptions, can they? So that’s where I was yesterday, down in San Diego at a reception for my sister-in-law and her partner, who squeezed in under the wire and got married before Prop 8 passed. Huzzah! Needless to say, the republic seems to have survived the event so far.

So everyone join me in congratulating Ginny and Cindy. Huzzah again! I’ll spare you the picture of them feeding each other pieces of the wedding cake, but I will show you the eye-catching cake itself, which was designed by a good friend of theirs (it was lemon flavored and delicious). As you can guess, a lovely time was had by all.

from the big banner at the top of our pages asking for the donations that make Mother Jones' nonprofit journalism possible. But we still have upwards of $300,000 to raise by June 30, whether we get there is going to come down to the wire, and we can't afford to come up short.

If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please join your fellow readers who pitch in from time to time to keep our democracy-advancing, justice-seeking journalism charging hard (and to help us avoid a real budget crunch as June 30 approaches and our fiscal year ends).
