I was quietly pleased and amazed this week…

… when a job candidate casually mentioned that he had married his husband in New England during an interview. If you had asked me 10 years ago if I would have considered it possible that a candidate for a job would feel confident a remark like this wouldn’t be held against him by one or more of the strangers he was interviewing with (there were 7 of us) I probably would have laughed. This little vignette represents more to me about how far we’ve come than all the states passing ‘gay marriage’ laws – it’s social progress, writ clear and large in the casual way this kind of stuff, reviled in my youth, is now so accepted.
