    Speaking of gay marriage and same-sex unions, this was the cover of The Advocate last week. It poses an odd question: For his unequivocal support of gay marriage, is President Obama more like Lincoln or God?

    Really interesting constitutional questions raised by a woman who pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated being sentenced to eight years in jail, five years probation and substance abuse counseling. It’s none of those conditions that raise the constitutional concern. It’s this:
