Wow, the Chronicle has another libertarian! 

We've been pretty harsh on the Chronicle this year, but let's give credit where credit is due: They've at last got someone to write a libertarian piece. Ever since they lost last year's student-scholar Scott Bushee, the quality of the editorial page has deteriorated, which makes this easily the best editorial done. Clean, concise and to the point.
The hypocrisy of the government as a whole in dealing with this situation is amazing. Minnesota is one of 14 states that prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation, yet the state prohibits same sex marriage.

In a country that is supposed to be free, there are too many limitations being placed on citizen's rights.
I doubt Ms. Kropp has defended this position consistently, but if she can show it we'll make her a candidate for this year's award.
