In all but a few details, the Minardi-Edelman union was the sort of occasion that has inspired joyful tears since society began the marriage ritual. The couple fed each other wedding cake, kissed and rubbed their frosting-smeared noses. Family and friends cheered. In this case, though, the deeply personal rite had a volatile political subtext, as symbolized by a small but critical departure from convention: the plastic figurines in the cake's heart-shaped center were both grooms.

The House is expected to vote today on the Defense of Marriage Act, a measure that would allow each state to decide for itself whether to recognize same-sex marriages from other states. It doesn't ban same-sex marriages or condemn them. It only says that each state should decide for itself. I believe homosexual couples should have all the rights enjoyed by heterosexual couples. But I also believe this law is appropriate.

Republican Assemblyman William J. "Pete" Knight, author of a bill that would have barred California from recognizing gay marriages performed in other states, said Tuesday that one of his sons is a homosexual. The conservative Antelope Valley lawmaker issued a statement disclosing the sexual orientation of his middle son, David, after being informed that a Bay Area weekly was about to write an article saying that the 35-year-old Baltimore businessman is gay.

Dealing another setback to the property rights movement, the Supreme Court on Monday upheld a San Francisco ordinance that required building owners to pay the city a fee when they converted rental units into hotel rooms. The owners of the San Remo Hotel said the $567,000 fee they were forced to pay violated the Constitution's guarantee that "private property [shall not] be taken for public use without just compensation." Three years ago, the California Supreme Court upheld the ordinance.

Honolulu's $5.2-billion rail project, which already launched construction earlier this year, has been dealt another setback with a court order requiring substantial new studies - including the possibility of a tunnel underneath parts of downtown to avoid the disruptions of a highly visible elevated guideway. U.S. Circuit Judge A. Wallace Tashima also said the city would have to reexamine the "quite serious" impacts the rail project might have on historic Mother Waldron Park, and also try harder to identify traditional cultural sites that might be affected along the rail route.

Wrapping up a yearlong inquiry, the state Division of Workers' Compensation found no evidence of criminal activity.

The gauntlet has been dropped. Los Angeles City Council member Laura Chick was prepared this week to battle some of her colleagues for passage of a new residential sewer rate system that she argues would be more equitable for Valley residents. But strong opposition is expected from lawmakers who represent the inner city, where bills would increase under the Chick-backed proposal. Most Valley residents, on the other hand, would see lower rates. Chick decided to postpone the debate until Aug.
