sitting on a stay

Eric Ross, The Engaged Masochist Standing Idly By at San Francisco’s City Hall

I mean no ill will toward Eric Ross and fiance Doug, but I certainly couldn’t stake out San Francisco’s City Hall while watching all these breeders get married. Does this man enjoy pain?

While Doug, presumably, holds down his day job his partner Eric is hanging out at City Hall awaiting news on whether Judge Vaughn Walker will maintain the temporary stay on his Prop 8 ruling while supporters of the law try their hand at an appeal. He’s got his marriage certificate, suit, and wedding bands ready the second he finds out if gay Californians can start getting married again after a nearly two-year ban. He probably waited in line to get a new iPhone, too.

At least 52 percent of Americans — the largest segment ever recorded by a poll — wish Eric and Doug the best.
