I am as critical as the next person of Rhode Island's lone daily newspaper. Sometimes they publish seriously excellent essays, articles, opinion pieces, et al.
This "Love Story" brought me great joy. I think I've met Pam Brightman or spoken to her in some professional capacity (I've been in RI since 1982, after all)...but no matter...
In a world with so much killing, torture, unkindness, we cannot read too many love stories. It is embarrassing that RI does not allow all its citizens to marry or to divorce. We're working on this!
