Manhattan, a year ago today

Uptown, there was rage:
(June 24, 2011 -- 3rd Ave. btw 40th and 41st)
A year ago, a stark contrast was struck. Between love and contention. Between regard for all tax-payers versus second-class status for some. Between the promises of our future and the unfortunate setbacks of our past. Between where we're going and where we've been.
A year later, my fellow New Yorkers have beautifully (which is to say benignly) adapted to the new marriages in their midst. The National Organization For Marriage's march is completely forgotten. The course of our larger national history should be so lucky.
