The Tears Of Unfathomable Sadness


My friend Rich Murray, activist with Queer Rising happened to be in the galley of the New York Senate during the vote for marriage equality. He got the opportunity to snap this photo of Bryan Brown of National Organization for Marriage weeping as the gays were rejoicing.

Don't you just feel awful? The gay and lesbian people of New York were just put on legal parity with Brown. What an awful day for him.


Dave Holmes on Twitter had a very popular tweet the night of the vote with a message to Bryan and Maggie Gallagher of NOM:

Hey, @nomtweets: looks like you and us gays are equals in New York now. We will celebrate by being kinder and more honest than you've been.

I admire Dave's high road.


I am considerably less kind and considerably more petty, and Daily Kos' Exotrip's message from the South Park episode, Scott Tenorman Must Die, resonated for me:

Oh, the tears of unfathomable sadness! Yummy!!!
