  1. Basically, people are generously sending flowers to random gay couples waiting in line to get married in San Francisco. This is a brilliant idea, but I immediately recognized a problem. The flower shops apparently charge about US $45 to deliver these flowers. That’s probably market value, but it’s a bit steep for individuals who might want to help out (particularly if they’re paying in Canadian dollars or other weaker currencies) but can’t spare fifty bucks.

    Hence, Flowers for Al and Don. We used a PayPal account to collect money, with which we bought bouquets in bulk for the couples in line. As we never planned for this to be an ongoing project, and with the recent court order halting marriages in San Francisco, we’re suspending donations.
