"I am extremely happy. It turned out to be the best day of my life. I can't wait for him to come home."

-- Takesha Piazza, immediately following her marriage to alleged crack dealer Franklin Barndt. The two were wed Friday immediately following a motions hearing in Barndt's crack charges. Barndt was returned to jail following the ceremony. Gays and lesbians can't get married in Pennsylvania, but Takesha and Franklin's relationship was solemnized by the judge hearing the motion.
