THE VETO OF ARIZONA SB 1062

A NEW YORK TIMES EDITORIAL I CAN AGREE WITH

Even a broken clock is right every now and then. Similarly, even the New York Times – whose editorial staff, in my judgment, is so often wrong, can get things right every now and then.

In simple terms, it was supposed to mean, for example, that if a gay couple...
