This past weekend, a group of dedicated citizens took the steps of Tracy's City Hall protesting California voters' collective decision to classify same-sex love as second-class.
Their cause might be righteous, but it's no surprise if their calls went unheard, as City Hall is rather unoccupied on Saturdays.
Even if their protest was scheduled for midday Wednesday, the effort would merely be symbolic. It's the county clerk who issues marriage licenses, not the city.
Still, it's good to know the cause is alive. Too bad there wasn't more of this fervor before Nov. 4.
