I was born and raised in Connecticut. After living in Illinois, Massachusetts, and New York, I spent 25 years after marrying Elly in Connecticut before we moved to Maryland and then West Virginia for work reasons.
Until my working for CSC as a commuter to and from Texas took up the time, I spent five years as a Justice of the Peace in Marlborough, CT. My specialty was marrying other atheists like me.
Today the first same-sex couples received Connecticut marriage licenses as the new law passed in my home state became the reality it is. I would have been thrilled to be performing weddings there now. I can’t tell you how proud I am of Connecticut… and how disappointed I am at California.
