    Washington Post – By Rachel Weiner – Feb. 14 (News Report) – In California, a federal appeals court struck down the state’s ban on same-sex marriage, declaring it unconstitutional. In New Jersey, the state Senate passed a bill to legalize gay marriage, two years after a similar measure went down in defeat. And on Monday Washington became the seventh state to legalize gay marriage when Gov. Chris Gregoire (D) signed it into law. Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) is pushing for gay marriage legislation, but he’s short a few votes and says the bill needs more Republican support. NewsTrust Rating: 4.0 average – 3 Reviews » [...]

    Seattle Times – By Andrew Garber – Jan. 04 (News Report) – “It’s time, it’s the right thing to do, and I will introduce a bill to do it,” Gregoire said in a statement. “Our gay and lesbian families face the same hurdles as heterosexual families — making ends meet, choosing what school to send their kids to, finding someone to grow old with, standing in front of friends and family and making a lifetime commitment,” Gregoire said. “For all couples, a state marriage license is very important. It gives them the right to enter into a marriage contract in which [...]

    eatthestate.org – By Maria Tomchick – Jan. 03 (News Analysis) – Welcome to this 15th annual selection of a few of the year’s most over-hyped and underreported local stories. With the news business, especially newspapers, undergoing a not-very-slow collapse, and hard news coverage usually the first victim of tightening budgets, there was more underreported news than ever this year. Fear not, however. America’s addiction to trivial distractions can withstand any assault from economic hardship–or from reality.

    Seattle Times – By Janet I. Tu – Dec. 24 (News Report) – In a reversal of an earlier decision, Metro Transit said Thursday it would not allow a bus ad alleging “Israeli war crimes,” saying a flood of comments has convinced officials that service could be disrupted. The ad, purchased by the Seattle Mideast Awareness Campaign, ties alleged Israeli war crimes to U.S. military aid. The ad had been set to run for a month on the sides of 12 buses starting next week.

    seattlepi.com – By Trevor Griffey – Nov. 03 (News Analysis) – Looking at the election results, it seems to me that the majority of voters are neither left nor right, or perhaps they are both at once in ways that don’t easily fit with either major political party’s claims. Washington state voters have consistently voted for maintaining government services, but show caution to the point of hostility to creating new ones. At the same time, voters have consistently opposed paying taxes needed to maintain current levels of government services (other than special levies for education and public safety), but show caution [...]

    Seattle Times – By Danny Westneat – Oct. 17 (Opinion) – Remember the squatters? They took over an opulent Kirkland mansion last summer and lived it up for two weeks before the main instigator, a woman named Jill Lane, was hauled off in handcuffs for trespassing. Her tale seemed too sensational to take seriously. She insisted she wasn’t in it for money, but to make a political point: That the banks, in their frenzy to profit off the long-popped real-estate bubble, had lost track of who owns what.
