Today's letter - Elliot Spitzer can wed, why can't I?

Dear Governor Schwarzenegger -

New York Governor Elliot Spitzer was just caught using a prostitute. He will probably have to step down as Governor, but he and his spouse will have the option of preserving or dissolving their marriage as they see fit. The government does not intervene in this most personal and intimate decision, even with alleged adultery.

I have never used a prostitute, but the government still punishes me and my partner by removing our ability to choose marriage, just because we are a same-sex couple.

Where is the justice in that?

Yours,
