Maureen Dowd nailed it in her Feb 26th NY Times Column:

Bob Herbert nails it in his Feb 27th NY Times column:

Op-Ed Columnist: Bliss and Bigotry: "The opponents of gay marriage are on the wrong side of history. The interests of civilization are not served by driving mature love underground. And the interests of the United States, which is supposed to be the quintessence of a free society, are not served by enshrining bigotry in law."

And I hope they put more people on the steps to marry as many people as show up. And I hope everyone shows up.' "
