Quote of the Day

I’ve been here almost four years, and there might be a handful of people who are uncomfortable. But [gay couple Greg Bourke and Michael DeLeon (pictured at left)] are loved and respected. . . . They’re involved, and you see how they fit in. They’re just good people. And that’s kind of what it’s all about, isn’t it?
