Thanks to REF 74 I can now marry my partner of 21 years. When we called our local county newspaper to ask about their policy on same-sex engagement notices they said " no one has ever asked before...send your information in". We did but a reporter took it one step further and called for a short interview saying they would like to do a story. It became the top story in this week's edition (slow news week?)
I thought it was kind of cool and progressive of them.
Location: IAD, and sometimes OMNI/PR. Currently: not far from IAD, but home will always be SAN (not far from the "touch my junk and I'll have you arrested" Memorial TSA Check Point) even if I'm not there so much these days.

Congratulations and much happiness to you both. Well done to Richard Oxley for recognizing and writing a nice story.
I am serious. And don't call me Shirley.

Congrats on your impending nuptials, david! Who cares if it was a slow news week? I think we'd all like to see more coverage of happy events and what could be happier than happy couples tying the knot?
I haven't lost my mind......I sold it on eBay!!
