NYT, Where's the Love?

After the protest on Wednesday it felt like we were making history when on a random weeknight several thousand people (anywhere between 4,000 and 10,000, it seems) gathered and marched down Broadway from the Mormon temple by Lincoln Center to Columbus Circle.  It seemed big enough to get some sort of mention in the New York Times, so last night I looked through the print edition of the paper to find nothing.  What gives, NYT?  Don't feel the need to cover the protest of a big portion of your readership that is making national headlines elsewhere?

Shoutout to CNN, which has been dedicating some serious airtime to the issue (on AC360, among others).  Tonight at 9pm, Larry King Live is fully dedicated to a same-sex marriage debate: "Same-sex marriage! Voters in California banned it -- now the backlash! Joy Behar, Cynthia Nixon, Pete Wentz, Mayor Gavin Newsom, Rev. Jim Garlow and others debate the pros, the cons, and what happens next in the fight over Proposition 8!"  

In case you don't know who Jim Garlow is and the "Rev." isn't clue enough (I was secretly hoping it's some excommunicated Reverend, but no such luck):
"We’re watching California and the vote on marriage. Because if you fail there to stop it, if you fail to stop it, what will be unleashed across the world will be a spirit worse than radical Islam."
Will Joy, Cynthia and Pete tear him to shreds first, or just eat him alive?
