I like my MacBook pro, it types, it surfs the net, runs my radio show, downloads pictures, music and movies, it even helps me speak to people far away.
I like my laptop, but I do not love my laptop. In fact (and this might sound horrible), given the choice between my Mac or my wife any of my kids or even my dog, I am sorry to say, but all eight gigabytes of random access memory would be out on the street.
Apparently not everyone feels the same way I do, and to be fair and balanced it’s time to present the other side (even if it is freaking crazy). My friend Joe Newby wrote about this nut job who wants to marry his laptop. In his case it’s not out of love but to make a point, a dumb one. And even worse to make his point he had to harass Kim Davis.

You remember Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who went to jail rather than issue marriage licenses to gay couples, right? She’s back in the news, this time because she reportedly refused to issue a marriage license to a man who wanted to marry his laptop computer, the Daily Caller reported Tuesday.
The plaintiff, Mark “Chris” Sevier, has also sued Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin and Attorney General Andy Beshear, the Daily Caller said, citing Liberty Counsel.
The Daily Caller adds:
Sevier, a graduate of Vanderbilt Law School, says he is trying to prove that marriage between a same-sex couple has the same legitimacy as a human marrying an inanimate object.
Sevier’s license to practice law was suspended in 2011. [Jeff note somehow I am not surprised]
It’s not the first time he’s tried this. According to the Houston Press:
It would be all too easy to think that the man fighting to marry his Mac laptop in Harris County is some type of lonely, introverted tech nerd who accidentally fell in love with an intelligent machine. On the surface, it kind of sounds like he just walked out of the futuristic, Oscar-winning film Her and is trying to launch a civil rights movement for computers or something. Perhaps for Siri.
Unfortunately, though, that’s not what’s happening here…
