    Let's ban the technicality-o-crats 

    If backers of a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriages have the additional valid signatures they believe they have, Issue 1
    will be on the ballot Nov. 2, and it doesn't matter that the initiative failed to meet all the legal requirements.

    Cynthia C. Lazarus, Donna Bowman and Lisa Brown, three judges of the Franklin County Court of Appeals have ruled 3-0 that it makes no difference that circulated petitions did not include a certified summary, as required by state law.

    Hey, folks, feel free to make up your own rules. Those pesky technicalities mean nothing. This is Ohio.
