A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Network news: I'm blogging from the my parents' home and we're watching the NBC "Nightly News." The lead story was Massachusetts issuing marriage licenses to gay couples. The piece was a couple of minutes long -- and woefully one-sided. At least two gay couples were quoted, as was a lawyer who argued that other states should be required to recognize gay "marriages" performed in Massachusetts.

And for the other side of the debate? You got a few seconds of people holding signs and some garbled yelling. No interview. No brief comments from opponents. Nope, just a biased story showing that today was a first, small step in an ongoing effort. The report took pains to point out that the newly-"married" gay couples still don't receive Social Security payments like heterosexual couples.

And they wonder why Fox News' viewership is growing and the networks' continue to diminish?

*UPDATE* For the record, just finished watching ABC's "World News Tonight" piece on the subject -- and they, at least, provided both sides of the debate.
