Thurston County Auditor Kim Wyman -- who is also Secretary of State-elect -- heard Seattle’s King County intended to issue the first license.
So, Wyman decided to hold a drawing. Fifteen couples submitted their names for ten slots. Wyman did the honors with reporters and TV cameras looking on.
The first couple picked was Lynn Grotsky and Lisa Brodoff, who have been together for more than 30 years and have raised two children.
Grotsky says she is “thrilled.”
“We’ve been waiting for this for 31 years," she says. "That’s a very long engagement. And it wasn’t an engagement of choice. We would have been married years ago. And so as soon as we finally can legally do it, we want to be there in celebration.”
"Happiness and depression are both feelings, just like joy and anger. It's not feelings that give us problems. It's what we do with them that makes the difference."
"When I was 5 years old, my mom always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down happy. They told me I didn't understand the assignment and I told them they didn't understand life."
Seeds people missed when sorting their newly legal weed.
Sinsemilla doesn't have seeds.
Science is much more than a body of knowledge. It is a way of thinking. This is central to its success. Science invites us to let the facts in, even when they don’t conform to our preconceptions.
