On This Historic Day, I Got To Ask Edie Windsor About Love

June 27, 2013

Today was a beautiful day. In covering the Supreme Court rulings on Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act for Newsweek/The Daily Beast, I got to begin my day with Cathy Marino-Thomas and her wife Sheila. These ladies have worked their butts off for over a decade to advance marriage equality, and what a joy it was to be with them as the decision came in.

Later in the day, I got to very briefly interview the woman of the day, Edie Windsor. Realizing I would probably only get one question in, I went for the big one I leave until last (when I do ask it) while doing interviews:

What is the meaning of love?

Read her response (which included quoting W.H. Auden from memory) at Newsweek.
