That liberal media: I was sitting at my desk at the Union-Tribune when the news came in that the California Supreme Court refused to put a halt to the illegal gay "marriages" being conducted in San Francisco. I was first informed of the decision by an excited co-worker who yelled out "hooray!" at the news. The response by several others was "That's great" and "wonderful."
Yes, editorially, the Union-Tribune is relatively conservative. But the editorial board is the most ideologically balanced part of the paper. The people in the newsroom are decidedly of a liberal bent.
One bit of good news regarding this decision: In California we can remove judges from the bench. The most famous case was that of state supreme court Justice Rose Bird, who was removed by the voters for her unwavering opposition to the death penalty.
With more than 60 percent of Californians opposing same-sex marriage, the justices might want to reconsider enforcing state law.
