Deval devalues biased measure

by Jeremy Hooper

Patrick Deval BioReports coming out of Massachusetts suggest that if he doesn't think there are enough votes to kill a proposed amendment banning gay marriage, then fair and decent Gov. Deval Patrick may try to postpone next week's scheduled ConCon vote on the measure.

Committed, he is!

In a related feet-dragging story: If there are enough votes advance the measure and send it to a public vote, then Mass. 'mo foes will try and postpone that state's progress and acceptance.

Legacy-tarnishing, it would be!

It remains to be seen whose postponement will ultimately inform history. Though so that this writer can move on and focus on writing fiction and children's books by at least 2020: Please oh please let justice and righteousness triumph!
