Proposition? What Proposition?
I seem to be experiencing a small – but, very much appreciated – uptick in new readers lately. To that end, I received a handful of emails from people asking me what I thought about last week's California Supreme Court decision upholding Proposition 8.
Well, seeing as how I carry about as much credibility on the subject as Miss California – and, really, you can probably infer my feelings just from reading what I've already written – I'd prefer to point y'all to better writers than me.
There were three pieces that stuck out. The first is the legal assessment of the court's ruling. This is a dense, but surprisingly nuanced review that keeps the emotional arguments in the background. The second, from San Francisco Chronicle columnist Mark Morford, brings the emotion to the forefront. Finally, in the interest of equal time, is a post from – of all places – SI.com writer Jeff Pearlman's personal blog.
