The Gary and Tony show on CNN was good, it was quite touching. What an adorable baby.

For me the surrogate's tattoos were far more of a threat to Western civilization than any gay marriage could ever be. Those were some ugly ass scary looking tattoos

Placido really is all that and a cup of coffee.

I like this Ring. I saw it piecemeal over the last two seasons and then decided to use my Christmas money to go all at once. I've seen two other Rings, and this is my third favorite, but I do like it very much. At times the silliness of the production distracts from the music, but at times Freyer's vision is really wonderful and works very well. I finish up Saturday night.

REYKJAVIK, Iceland — Icelandic Prime Minister Johanna Sigurdardottir has married her long-term partner, her office said on Monday, making her the world's first national leader with a same-sex spouse.

Sigurdardottir, 67, married writer Jonina Leosdottir on Sunday, the day a new law took effect defining marriage as a union between two consenting adults regardless of sex.

The two had had a civil union for years and changed this into a marriage under the new law, which was approved by parliament earlier this month.

The new law was celebrated at a church service on Sunday, which was also the international day for homosexual rights.

The prime minister's office said Sigurdardottir had sent a message to the gathering saying the new law was a cause for celebration for all Icelanders and adding: "I have today taken advantage of this new legislation."

The Lutheran State Church has long been split on the issue of same-sex marriage and the church congress in April did not unanimously support the new legislation. The bishop of Iceland has urged parish ministers to comply with the law.

Sigurdardottir, who has children from a previous heterosexual marriage, is the world's only openly gay prime minister but her sexuality has never been an issue in Iceland, which, like the other Nordic states, has a history of tolerance.

Maybe that's why the volcano erupted. Ever think of that? The country was being punished for its sins.

Ah, yes, of course, that totally explains that. How silly of me.

Missed the skit clip you posted there, Irvine, just watched it. Very funny. "He'll tell us about his latest relapse, and the lapse to come in August..." . Scary in its dead-on portrayal, though-all I could think of was the "700 Club" the whole way through.

Thanks for sharing that, that was good.

Tsk tsk. What's to become of Iceland now? And the slope's even slipperyer there, what with the cold weather and all.

just finally watched the Gary & Tony show. it was good. they were a little ... 1993, at least in mannerisms and dress, but they seemed like great dads, and a beautiful baby. and it's very clear that the person likely to suffer most from the lack of same-sex marriage is their child.

it's true. i was concerned for the child.

he didn't have lesbian parents. now that we know that lesbians are the best parents there are, and that kids do best with two lesbian mothers, we should make sure that we encourage all children to be in this optimal environment.
