An interesting story on KSL TV tonight about the Democratic party’s stated intention of inserting a “legalize gay marriage” plank in the party platform at next month’s convention. The KSL commentators and interviewees all pooh-poohed the idea as, “not an issue for Utah because we already made it illegal here — along-side 37 other states”.
The next story showed a man who had requested that his marriage proposal be broadcast on the scoreboard of a hockey game, only to have his intended go to buy beers at the exact moment is was displayed onscreen. “Fortunately” (they commented), she returned and he was able to ask her in person — all while captured on camera.
“All was not lost.”
So ironic that they couldn’t even see the irony.
