Another Bridge Crossed

As they often do the New Yorker managed to make a pertinent comment on what is happening in the city it celebrates. Tomorrow is the first day that same-sex couples will be allowed to marrry in New York State and the cover of this week's magazine celebrates with a touch of their trademark wry humour.
Wedding Season by Barry Blitt*
 
Its a big step - I know we took it four years ago this past week - and I wish everyone taking it today all happiness and good things.

*Cartoonist Barry Blitt took a bit of flack from his Royal Wedding cover a few months ago - but I thought it was a hoot at the time.  A left click here will reveal a retrospective of some of his controversial but always humorous takes on things current and topical.

I enjoyed looking through his past covers at the link you provided. He's done some real scorchers over the years! I remember how much controversy was stirred up by the one he did of Michelle and Barack Obama as Muslim terrorists in the White House. Hee hee!

Simple expression the 'Bridge ' one and yet very true. This is great news, but not here I'm afraid... What made me laugh is the He-Jab...and Marilyn 'happy .M.President' revisited...! Good day, sunshine ! thanks!
