Issue isn't marriage but couple's property rights

The ambiguous, front-page  headline read "Judge: Ind. must still honor marriage" (May 9). But anyone with a working brain could see the issue is not marriage but the transfer of property that is legally available outside of of marriage. Of course, you had to turn the page and go to the final paragraph to find that out.

A gay couple, a federal judge and a liberal newspaper have thus advanced the prospect in Indiana of legalizing same-sex marriage.

The low-information reader will predictably be impressed.
