Note: Like all good things, this podcast was raring to go before the Ninth Circuit's late afternoon decision to lift the Prop 8 stay. Hence, we discuss it in concept... not reality. Apologies. --JM
Some story lines seem to go on so long that, when they're over, it's a bit of a shock to the system. Two such stories -- one that's been with us all year, one that's been with us for most of a decade -- came to a close this week.
This edition of the Capitol Connection podcast is our look back at this week's historic, final chapter for a 2008 state constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage... and... this week's final enactment of a new state budget by Gov. Jerry Brown.
Anthony York of the Los Angeles Times and I discuss the political winners and losers in each of these big stories and how... even with the end... the debates rage on.
