Bloomberg To Bind Gay Couple In Matrimony

Gay couples in N.Y. can be legally wed starting this Sunday. Numerous applications for same-sex marriages poured in, and N.Y. City Hall employed a system to randomly pick who could wed on Sunday. Mayor Bloomberg is even officiating the ceremony between John Feinblatt, his chief policy advisor, and Jonathan Mintz, Commissioner of N.Y.'s Department of Consumer Affairs. Host Michel Martin speaks with Feinblatt and Mintz about what the new law means to them and their daughters.
