Same-Sex Marriage ...

...Hits the San Francisco Chronicle. Ow.

Tough issue there. Tough decision to make.

I understand the newspaper's concerns. The question, however, is where this stops. Can a gay journalist cover issues about gay people effectively? Can a black journalist cover issues about black people effectively? I think most people would say yes to both questions.

So where is the line drawn? When is a person too involved in an issue to cover it effectively?

May you be cursed to live in interesting times ...
