Too much going on for griddlin'.

But enjoy this little gay marriage joke Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald made after yesterday's DOMA ruling, courtesy of City Paper's Blogh:

One of the lighter moments of the day came when openly gay city councilor Bruce Kraus, in introducing Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald, said "I asked Rich to marry to me. He turned me down so I asked [City Councilor Bill] Peduto."

But Fitzgerald didn't take the idea off the table entirely.

"I don’t know, Bruce. My wife says 30 years might be enough so we might be on the market, who knows?" Fitzgerald joked, to raucous applause. "Wouldn’t that be city-county consolidation? How about that?"
