i never expected to take a liking to san francisco mayor gavin newsom - as a city representative he was well-known for shockingly unsympathetic views on the local homeless population - but he's impressing me with his permits to perform same-sex marriages. while i suspect he's making a savvy bid for local favor (and national notoriety, natch) rather than acting on sympathy for the gay population, good work is good work. if he kept things rolling and issued permits for peaceful demonstrations in union square, i might actually have to forgive him for having unconscionable hair.

san francisco being san francisco, a few enterprising bigots tried to make citizen's arrests at city hall. their punishment was complete indifference from bay area media outlets, with the exception of the earnest typing monkeys at the examiner.
