"I'm sure you've already heard, Ellen married the love of her life, my daughter-in-law, Portia de Rossi nearly one month ago. They had a stunning, intimate ceremony with family and close friends. Complete with beautiful decorations, their favorite roses, candlelit table and incredible cake. It was a magical evening...

Every parent should know that their daughters and sons have the choice to marry. And every mother should have the opportunity to be a part of their child's wedding day. With your help, we can make that happen. Donate now to fight Prop 8."

-- Betty DeGeneres, mother of talk-show queen Ellen, in an email to help raise money to fight California's Prop 8.

Betty: Our warmest congratulations to Ellen & Portia. They're both lucky to have you, and the support you offer. Is there some substantive way a straight, suburban, Ohio married couple can help defeat prop 8? Suggestions more than welcome. And if the newlyweds care to visit our blog they'll find a friendly reception at least, and a marriage-for-all pending website.
Thanks again, and let's hear how we can help.
