NEW YORK (AP) — Edith Windsor cried with joy Wednesday when she learned that the Supreme Court used her lawsuit to strike down a federal provision that defined marriage as only between a man and a woman, and the spunky former IBM executive who recently turned 84 was all smiles two hours later when she faced a packed press conference.
“Wow. I'm honored. I'm humbled. I'm overjoyed to be here today,” said Windsor, a Manhattan resident who goes by Edie, her words barely audible above the loud snaps of cameras.
