A city official married the first couple in New York City to wed under the state’s new law allowing same-sex marriage Sunday.
Phyllis Siegal, 77, and Connie Kopelov, 85, were married in a chapel at the city clerk’s office as a crowd of onlookers cheered.
Hundreds of same-sex couples heard the news Friday that they made the cut in the marriage lottery that New York state instituted for Sunday when the state’s Marriage Equality Act took effect. (via First gay couple weds in New York – This Just In - CNN.com Blogs)

Not  sure why, but my first thought was, “Connie was born before the first  talking picture.” These women have seen an awful lot—and that includes a  hell of a lot of progress. CONGRATS!
