'It's just plain WRONG' not enough of reason, locals mull economic impact of WI marriage ban

by Jeremy Hooper

It's unclear if the state is equally worried about offending marriage ban proponents, should the measure be nixed at referendum. However, we hear local "Historical Black Mark" dealers are certainly frightened at the prospect that their legacy-tarnishing wares could go unused.
