Let me get this straight

One of the arguments to oppose gay marriage was that homosexuals made up such a small percentage of the population that it was a "deviant" lifestyle.

Now, two of the state's most conservative counties, Butte and Kern, say that they don't have the staff to officiate both striaght and gay weddings, as surely a crush of rainbow-wearing people will head to the County Clerk's office beginning next week. (Story in the Chronicle here).

The lame excuse: there will be a mad rush June 16, and the counties in question can't possibly handle it. Or ask the people lined up to come back the next day.

Make sense to you?
