The other day my good friend Charles Robison called me up and informed that he heard in the news that there is a guy named Joshua Wiley in Columbus, Ohio who was trying to get married . . . to another guy. He, jokingly wanted to make sure it wasn't me. Now, I do suppose that there are lots of Joshua Wileys in the world, but this guy happens to be from Columbus, Ohio too. Just so there is no confusion, I am Joshua Nathaniel Wiley and this guy is Joshua Jacob Wiley:

"It's so easy for people who have something to tell others they can't have it," said Christopher Hoffman, who was turned away in Columbus with his partner of 16 months, Joshua Jacob Wiley. "We don't want to be `domestic partners.' We want to be husbands."

Now just how do you satirize this, anyways?
