Civil Disobedience Among Elected Officials: Viking Pundit uses a local analogy to flesh out the logic behind Gavin Newsom's gay marriage stunt:
. . . [N]o matter how well-intentioned their motives, elected officials have a solemn duty to uphold the law or invite anarchy.
Definitely worth reading, partially owing to Eric's performing the near-impossible feat of collecting reasonable, intelligent quotes from Mark Shields and Barney Frank in one post.

As a small sidebar, doesn't the name "Gavin Newsom" sound like a sitcom character, circa 1977?
