It's still stupid, Ricardo. There's a pretty standard rule of interpretation that when one interpretation would lead to an absurd result, and there's another interpretation that doesn't, you go with the one that doesn't. Especially when that interpretation is consistent with the legislative intent of the wording. But just a few years ago, when I tried to tell you that the pro-gay marriage proponents were barking up the wrong tree with that "amendment vs. revision" nonsense in California, what I have to say need not matter one bit.
California should have done what DC did this week, when the elections board or whatever rejected holding a vote because it would have been in violation of the city's Human Rights Act.
I think that the DC City Council is going to vote to approve same sex marriage in DC next week.
