Holding our breath

By Leila (articles ) | Jul 15, 2003

The Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts has delayed the decision on the case brought by seven couples seeking gay marriage.

The SJC has an ''administrative goal'' of deciding cases within 130 days of hearing oral arguments. But a few times a year, a quorum of justices votes to waive the deadline because the judges deem it ''necessary to accommodate special problems in individual cases.''

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    It is a sad commentary on our judicial when it takes them this long to decide about the proper use of rectums.
