Chapel, part 2


As the wise old sit-com theme song goes "You take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and there you have, The Facts of Life."

If the "good" is the recent NJ Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage then this must be the "bad":

Assemblyman Richard Merkt, R-Morris, vowed to have the justices (who ruled on same-sex unions) impeached. "Neither the framers of New Jersey's 1947 constitution, nor the voters who ratified it, ever remotely contemplated the possibility of same-sex marriage," Merkt said.

And such are the Facts of Life in New Jersey.

Sadly, Merkt is from my home county of Morris. I imagine after he impeaches the NJ Supreme Court Justices he will begin a campaign to throw out every decision made based on the US Constitution that our founding fathers never could have "remotely contemplated" back in 1787 when it was ratified.

Just for laughs, here's Merkt's contact info: http://www.njleg.state.nj.us/members/merkt.aspand

Outstanding commentary Michael!

See who knew one day you'd have a reason to recite The Facts of Life theme song? Very nice -- Another one you could use in describing Merkt, he is a "Schlamel - Schlamazul" did I spell that correctly?
