What of the past do we keep? Why is it important for us to remember what events happened before our time? We are much like the turtle found on top of the fence post; we know one thing for sure: that turtle didn't get there by himself. Yesterday is the one day we cannot change.

Sure, those are big changes, and I was just as surprised by them as you were, but this column is about change on a more personal level. This is a story about changes that I'm going through. You see, I'm already married, so all this gay marriage stuff doesn't affect me except as an observer of U.S. law ...
