Hundred's officiated a wedding the night before (his 19th of his three months of office. "I've married more people than Elizabeth Taylor") but it's for a man who donated $65m to renovate athletic fields.
I like how the cast make a point of not actually mentioning that Tuesday.
I think that this is a stunning use of a) the beat panel and b) repeating panels for effect. It's often derided as lazy, but here it's brilliant.
And because it's Tony Harris, he actually conveys Hundred's energy and enthusiasm
You've heard of Carville and Matalin, right?
The great thing about Ex Machina is that it's full of ideas but there's no real right idea being put forward. Candy and Dave and Journal are all given time to put across their views and Hundred listens to them, none of them are torn apart or praised. Even the villains could be the hero if a story turned out differently (apart from maybe the Neighbours, though The Gardener and Pherson have a lot of good points)
As for if Wylie and his brother made it down the aisle or not, buy Tag. It's one of the few books that genuinely gives me a chill when I read it. (and not because of any gay marriage thing)
