I talked to a local judge last night at a meeting. She said she had performed the first same-sex marriage in our county that day. It was for two women who had been together roughly forever. Their two kids were at the ceremony. Judge said she had tears of joy running down her face during the entire ceremony. History was made yesterday in Polk County.
As much as I dislike our current governor, I have to give him credit for saying that Wisconsin will follow the law and not block same-sex marriage. And I will not mention that he may be saying that simply because the election is 24 days away and he is in a dead heat with his opponent and, clearly, public sentiment is on the side of allowing adults to marry whomever they chose. No, I will not say that.
