NY State Senate Passes Marriage Equality

A truly great day. Was watching "Sweet Smell of Success" on DVD with my wife and David Johnston when the news came in. Champagne, long saved, was brought out to celebrate.

Love to all out there - including my brother Dan and his long-time partner Joe - who deserve nothing less than equal citizenship. Here's to a great step forward. For a long time, "Albany" has been the equivalent of incompetence, disappointment, corruption. For tonight, their name equals "the right side of history."
