after a distinguished career as the founder and CEO for twenty-five years of Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly, the bible for all lawyers in the state (and in seven other states before he sold the business in 1997).So I was a bit astounded that Mass News never posted the editorial by Publisher/Editor-in-Chief, David L.Yas, Esq since he is the "guy in charge" now at the Mass Lawyers Weekly. Well, Ok, I know why Mass News hasn't posted it, look at the title:
Gay-marriage opponents: time to hang it up guys
You can probably find it on the Mass Lawyers Weekly website, however you will have to pay to view it. It's at page 34 MLW 1842.
Suffice it to say this heterosexual holds back no punches. He reminds us about how we were warned of chaos ensuing after same sex couples started marrying and that it didn't happen, well it only happened to those who want this new anti gay amendment:
He also gives a quick civics lesson by reiterating that the MA SJC gets paid to interpret the Constitution, it's what they do.
But the end, it made me laugh out loud. Those of you who read Mass News can attest to the daily updates of the "planes flying overhead" seeking Margaret Marshall's resignation. Well, Yas asks "we can can all agree that anyone who is persuaded by a few words on an airplane banner is not the type of person we want voting on important societal issues."
It's funny because it's true. The editorial is a great read if you can get a copy of it.
Update: Mass Marrier has gotten permission to post the whole editorial. You can read it here.
