Dear Ms. McKenzie,

 
These announcements are a logical step only if the DMN wants to lose market penetration of readers at an faster pace than it is now.
 
First of all, same-sex unions are not legal in Texas, so why recognize them? Why not have announcements for a woman marrying 3 men, a man marrying a barnyard animal, or a man marrying a little boy? Don't laugh -- all 3 situations have groups of supporters in this country.

10 years ago, the idea of the DMN recognizing gay marriages would have been unthinkable. Now the DMN is clamoring to be just like the New York Times -- especially in their biased reporting of the news. The DMN should be more careful of who it tries to emulate. You've basically chosen the Eddie Haskell of reporting as your role model.

 
Second, while the DMN has always been positively giddy about "gay rights" -- do a Nexis search on Cathedral of Hope for the DMN if you don't believe me -- its readers are not so inclined. Many readers want to see the facts reported and don't care to have the DMN continue to couch editorials under the guise of news. That's why readership isn't growing at the same rate as the population.
 
Third, thank heavens for the internet and talk radio. Now we're no longer limited to just the news that the DMN decides to report.
 
Best regards,
