His popularity among GOP true believers was so great that he upstaged  Mitt Romney  when Walker and the Republican presidential hopeful spoke in late March at the same party dinner a few nights before the Wisconsin primary. So the Romney campaign knew better than to let Walker do it again Monday at a Romney rally here in a sweltering textile mill. The solution: Have the two introduced simultaneously, letting Romney bask in the Walker-style whoops and cheers that he sometimes has trouble drawing on his own. The task fell to Dan Sinykin, chief executive of Monterey Mills, a maker of fabric for paint rollers and stuffed animals.

Leonard I. Green, who in 1980 opened a California office for Gibbons, Green, von Amerongen, a New York investment banking partnership he helped found 20 years ago, said Thursday that he will create a similar venture in Los Angeles. In an announcement released in New York, Green and co-founder Edward Gibbons described the parting as friendly. That would be in keeping with the philosophy of Gibbons Green, which has specialized in "friendly" acquisitions. Friendly investments will be the goal as well of Green's new--and as yet unnamed--venture with Christopher V. Walker, another Gibbons Green partner.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Atty. Gen. Jerry Brown urged a federal judge Friday to permit gay nuptials to resume immediately. Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn R. Walker on Wednesday overturned Proposition 8's ban of gay marriage. He put his decision on hold until he decides whether same-sex marriages should be permitted pending appeals. Walker said he would rule after he reviewed written arguments on that question due Friday. Schwarzenegger said California was prepared to marry gay couples and pointed to the fact that an estimated 18,000 same-sex couples wed in 2008 before Proposition 8 passed.

Walker's comments were the first public airing of a possibility that has been increasingly under discussion by legal experts — that the fight over the constitutionality of Proposition 8 might not be...

When the evidence for and against Proposition 8 is examined in detail, it becomes obvious just how little reason there was to single out gay and lesbian couples as the only ones to be barred from marrying. That kind of examination never took place during the bitter, frenzied 2008 campaign on the initiative. But this year, U.S. District Chief Judge Vaughn R. Walker conducted a far more thoughtful inquiry during the federal trial challenging the measure. As a result, his decision Wednesday was not only welcome, but unsurprising.
