love is the drug

81 couples got hitched today

Once through the metal detectors and past the zombies waiting hours upon hours to pay out the nose for minor traffic infractions, Metro Court is a puffy, love-filled dream of nuptual bliss.

Four score and one couple jumped the broom today at Metro Court, says spokeswoman Janet Blair. They came from all over. The couples were comprised of one man and one woman.

Meanwhile, on Civic Plaza, demonstrators rallied for marriage equality. Cora Bernal commented on the Alibi’s Facebook page: "I thank everybody who gathered, everybody who called representatives. I truly believe that nonviolent protest can change even the hardest of hearts (see history, including recent history in Egypt)."
