04:12- [Bob Bragar] Why did you leave New York?

I left for Love! I met a Dutchman at a party in 1994. We did not exchange names or numbers, so we had to go find each other, which was hard. I was an immigration lawyer and I knew that I could not get my guy into America. There was no Visa for him. I assumed things would change, and then in the dark of night Bill Clinton signed the defense of marriage act.
