Ah, Seattle


Babylonia Aivaz recently got married--to a 107-year-old abandoned warehouse.  The Occupy Seattle protester staged the event to call attention to gentrification.  Since Aivaz is female, and so is the building--I've no idea how the Occupy folks ascertained that--this was a gay wedding.  Alas, the union will be a short one, as the warehouse is due to be demolished by mid-February.  Aivaz will have to struggle on as a widow.

The Washington State Senate votes this evening on same-sex marriage.  While Aivaz married herself up to bricks and mortar on Jan. 29 to make a point about community space, I wouldn't be at all surprised if one of the senators cites the nuptials as an example of what granting gay marriage can lead to.  If Washington legalizes same-sex marriage, soon everybody will want to marry the Space Needle.
