Here Comes the Brides, All Dressed in...

Went to Southern Village's Outdoors concert series last weekend--almost all weekend--and we were treated (on Friday night) to a free concert by the NC Symphony, in which they played the bridal march.

Thought about this news item: the marriage of the Prime Minister to her partner:

Miss Sigurdardottir, 68, formally married Jonina Leosdottir, a writer, after the couple submitted a demand for their civil union to be transformed into a marriage, the RUV broadcaster said.

Iceland's parliament on June 12 unanimously adopted legislation allowing gay marriage, in a law that came into force on Sunday.

Homosexual couples could previously enter into a civil partnership and benefit from the same rights as heterosexual couples, but this had not been considered a formal marriage.

Miss Sigurdardottir, born in 1942, took power in February 2009. She has lived with Miss Ledsdottir, who is in her fifties, for several years and the couple entered a civil union in 2002.

She is the world's first openly gay head of government.

This is on,'t find it on what Prince What's His Name was doing in NYC.

Give me a break.
