"2 counties to halt all weddings, gay or not," the headline I read over Rick's shoulder said.
"Is one of them Kern!?" I asked excitedly, skimming ahead; "Of course it is."
"Due to lack of resources?" Rick muttered; "That's a pretty flimsy argument."
"I think I'd go right past 'flimsy' and clear on to 'transparent.' I know a judge can't say 'I reject your argument because you're Kern County,' but, well, it's true."
