Letter: Smaller papers mum on SCOTUS gay marriage hearings?

A Texas journalist says he checked several papers for editorials on the Supreme Court gay marriage hearings and didn’t find any commentary. “For what is shaping up to be a landmark ruling with both sides very vocal about what should happen, I feel like these newspapers were punting on 3rd down today,” writes Phil Jankowski. “Maybe that’s just the state of editorial boards these days.”
