Celebrants began convening almost immediately after yesterday's SCOTUS announcement, and by the timea planned rally organized by the Stonewall Democrats started at 5:30pm, the crowd had swelled into the thousands, with chants of "Thank you, Edie!" filling the air.

Thank you indeed, Ms. Windsor. We can't wait to see you at the March on Sunday.
