    Are Ohioans wed to inequality? 

    Well, isn't this going to be an entertaining Ohio ballot! George W. (for ``Wrong Way,'' Kerry says) vs. the very same Sen. John Kerry and Ralph Nader, who barring court challenges had gotten his name on Ohio's ballot. Then, there is the issue that will allow Ohio to ban marriages other than those between heterosexual couples; never mind that they such marriages ARE ALREADY PROBITTED).

    Required by Ohio election law to certify th ballot to 88 country boards of election, Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell concluded that Issue 1, banning gay marriages, is one the ballot barring legal challenges – of which there are many.

    The Campaign to Protect Marriage is still going back and forth regarding the validity of the required 322,899 signatures of registered voters necessary to get Issue 1 on the ballot. Ohioblog is not threated by marriages other than hetrosexual; neither is Ms. Ohioblog, who is in favor of the issue appearing being on the ballot and seeing it buried under an avlananche of right-thinking.)

    How the challenges shake out remain to be determined. In any case, the gay marriage issue should bring more people to the polls, most of them Bush supporters. If Kerry does not respond to this point, he's toast.
