The Sound of the Crowd

When You Can’t Think Of A Wittier Headline…

…steal outright the one for the story to which you’re linking. Case in point, the title of this one, which follows after an excerpt:

“Civil unions do, of course, appeal to a wide variety of groups. Many moderates and liberals support domestic partnership programs, not because they oppose gay marriage, but because they worry that the country may not be ready to embrace it, especially in a presidential election year. Many also see civil unions as a way station en route to gay marriage. I have some sympathy for their position. If the only two choices were between domestic-partner programs for gay couples and nothing at all, I would certainly take the domestic-partner programs. But I make this statement with trepidation. For gay people, civil unions and the like are a seat at the back of the bus, a badge of differentiation and inferiority pinned on every same-sex union.”

Drawn from Dire Straights. You see what I mean? I can’t beat that.
