Love me or leave me

Readers react re gay marriage

Love me or leave me


Readers either loved or hated my Sunday column and earlier blog post about President Obama’s evolutionary affirmation of same-sex marriage.

Roughly two-thirds of the 50 emails, voicemails, online posts and Facebook comments were favorable.

Let’s start there, shall we?

“That was a beautiful column,” a caller (my favorite) messaged.

“Another terrific column,” a terrific fan wrote.

“Bravo,” cheered another.

Thanks, everybody!

Or not quite everybody…

“What’s next? Marriage to a pet?”

(Yeah, that'll happen).

“Spare us your laments.”

(Not much chance of that, either).

“I feel sorry for you.”

(No need for that, my friend).
