Let the weddings begin

Hundreds of same-sex couples wed in California today and the New York Times chose the photograph above as the most prominent to illustrate the news on its website. I'm guessing photo selection on this historic day will be interesting to observe in the national press and the subject of plenty of blog commentary. (The NY Times, for example, used three photos on-line, all of female couples.)

I'm also guessing the phrase "gay marriage" will no longer be in quotes in D-G accounts.

Best wishes to all the newlyweds.
