Another typical UU day in Boston
So recently, fausto's office has seen fit to shuffle desks a little bit, and so by the agency of panentheistic grace it turns out that fausto's new closest working colleague is another UU from the parish three towns over.
So now this morning fausto and "alt-fausto" climb into a cab to go downtown and call on some clients and tell them about the desk shuffle, and lo and behold, the cabbie picks a route that swings right past 25 Beacon Street, and right next door is the Massachusetts State House, and the legislature happens to be meeting in special session as a constitutional convention to decide whether to endorse a referendum that would amend the state constitution to ban gay marriage, and there is a big "marriage equality" rally going on on the lawn, and fausto says to alt-fausto, "I wonder if we'll see anyone we recognize?", and alt-fausto says, "Gotta be," and fausto says, "Oh look, that looks like Kim Crawford Harvie, right in the middle, all decked out in her vestments," and alt-fausto says, "Pretty hot day for all those vestments," and fausto says, "Yeah, I thought I was uncomfortable just in this suit and tie," and then we're past the rally into the next block, and staring down the street at the front of Kings Chapel.
In a display of political courage not seen in Boston since the Tea Party, the legislators voted to adjourn the constitutional convention and resume debate two days after Election Day in November.
