Napa Register says Vote No on 8

I dunno how I missed this. On September 17, 2008, the Napa Valley Register editors published their endorsement of No on 8, "In our view, Proposition 8 is a misguided and unconstitutional proposal. We urge voters to reject Proposition 8", explaining:

...First of all, California marriage doesn’t need to be protected from gay people. Gay people pose no threat to the institution of marriage, to traditional families or to society at large.

That is a choice to be respected — and a choice that would be undisturbed by the outcome of Proposition 8, whatever it may be.
