Quote Of The Day - Paul Ferguson

"I commend each of you that is coming forward today for your courage. I think you do realize that by law, the Commonwealth of Virginia does not allow me to issue those marriage licenses to you. I hope that if laws do change in the future, that you will choose to return one day to Arlington County to receive a marriage license.  Unfortunately, I am not able to grant that license by law." - Arlington County Clerk of the Circuit Court Paul Ferguson, speaking yesterday to the same-sex couples who appeared at his office to demand marriage licenses.  After Ferguson's pained refusal, the group marched across the Potomac to the Jefferson Memorial.
