Be my valentine, get hitched in Union City

Calling all lovebirds, Union City is looking for couples to marry … Tomorrow!

Valentine’s Day was supposed to mark the start of a new wedding service for local couples who didn’t want to travel all the way to Oakland for a civil ceremony. But the couple that had booked City Hall for the big event just backed out. No word yet if they’re out of love or just having second thoughts about tying the knot in the courtyard where usually only geese mate for life.

Anyway, I was counting on that story, and I don’t have a backup plan. So if a friendly couple wants the state to recognize their love or solve a pesky immigration issue, this is the time to act.

Maybe a feisty code pink radical met a sexy gold star dad Tuesday in Berkeley?
