There’s a piece in Salon today by Eli Sanders, about the same-sex marriage movement in Washington, vs. other states (like Oregon). About a year ago, Eli and other writers at this paper were bashing King County Exec Ron Sims for not issuing marriage licenses, Gavin Newsom-style. Eli now argues—and I have to agree—that Sims was right to take the slow road, and we were wrong. That said, I certainly don’t regret marching to the courthouse last March and demanding a license.
