Legal technicality

Posted By on Sat, Jul 1, 2006 at 5:50 AM

Brummett explains -- not that it'll matter to those inclined to outrage -- the narrow legal ground by which the Supreme Court decided the case on gay foster parents. Also, what's likely to happen next.

Noted by a reader: Mike Beebe rethought the careful statement he'd issued after the Supreme Court ruling Thursday and joined the demagogue chorus Friday with an unequivocal statement of opposition to gay foster parents and support of a law to prohibit it. Sad. It's craven acts like this that could send an electorally significant number of voters into the columns of Rod Bryan and Jim Lendall.
