@Jaxonpool  1/5/15, No. 96

From Dr. Tristan Voltaire, PhD:


Upon being ordered to issue marriage licenses to gays and lesbians, clerk Ronnie Fussell responded by quoting Shakespeare’s Hamlet, advising those who have not yet married to “get thee to a nunnery!” He continued,


  I say, we will have no more marriages:
   Those that are married already, all but one, shall
   Live; the rest shall keep as they are. To a
   Nunnery, go.”

He was quoting Act 3, scene 1, 146-149. And we respond to Fussell with Ophelia’s words at line 150: “O, what a noble mind is here overthrown!”
