RoadLinda Greenhouse on the Walker case: "The logical inference from this view of judicial duty is that if a gay judge has a stake in the outcome of a case about whether to recognize same-sex marriage, so presumably does a straight judge.

I trust that the judges who rule on this latest effort to substitute recusal for legal argument will understand it for the subterfuge that it is."
