Big Win for Little Edie

'I cried, I cried': DOMA widow says on hearing of Supreme Court win

NBC reports:
The 84-year-old widow at the center of an historic gay-rights marriage case before the Supreme Court said she cried on Wednesday upon learning of her win, with the justices deeming unconstitutional a federal law that bars recognition of same-sex marriage. Smiling and at some times emotional, Edie Windsor, 84, said: “I cried, I cried,” after learning of her landmark victory, hailed by one of her attorneys, James Esseks, as a “watershed” moment in the decades-long battle for gay rights.
We didn't get the Prop 8 ruling I wanted, but I am happy for her, and everyone like her.
