Change of Heart

One thing that baffled me was that Mayor Newsom -- who made national news by making San Francisco City Hall available for gay marriages -- took a strong stand against legalizing prostitution precisely because it would give organized crime free rein, while gay politicians like Ammiano and Migden -- who are righteous on almost everything else -- supported legalized prostitution. And it wasn't because the facts weren't available.

San Francisco politics can be pretty strange, but I find it hard to believe that those who carried on Harvey Milk's struggle for liberation would cave to partisan interests over such a fundamental human rights abuse.

I am hoping that in the interim they've had a change of heart, and will join us in shunning Craigslist.
