ALSO, DINOSAURS WERE INVOLVED: Jen and I returned just a few hours ago from a weekend trip to Seattle, to see our own Phil Throckmorton become lawfully wed on a drizzly evening on the UW campus. Thankfully, and wisely, umbrellas were distributed as party favors, but it could not have felt more warm and friendly under that tent. Seriously, Mr. and Mrs. Phil are quite the perfect match, and we wish them well.

Their wedding was the first I've attended with a reading from the Goodridge opinion on the importance of civil marriage, but I'd rather honor the couple with the quote they chose at the start of their printed programs. From The Odyssey:
There is nothing nobler or more admirable than when two people who see eye to eye keep house as man and wife, confounding their enemies and delighting their friends.

Delighted we are, indeed, and we wish them all the happiness in the world.
