Why the change?
Re “Prop. 8 rewording contested,” July 29
California Atty. Gen. Jerry Brown decided to change the language of Proposition 8 on the ballot from “only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California” to wording saying that the measure seeks “to eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry.” If the meaning is the same, why is the change needed? If the meaning is different, the change contradicts the petition that put the proposition on the ballot. Either way, the change is groundless.
