Dear Governor Schwarzenegger –
I’m sorry to hear that your mother-in-law, Eunice Schriver, is in the hospital.
I wish I could have a mother-in-law. The woman who fills that role is just as vibrant, just as delightful and just as much of a person as Eunice – but because of the ban on gay marriage that you support, she can’t be my mother-in-law.
I wish the best for Eunice and your family during this difficult time, and encourage you to relish this relationship that only the special right of marriage can provide.
