Dan Clark chats with Ron Edwin (KWPC producer) about his announced topic "Muscatine's (Gay) Wedding Trolley?" posed by last Friday's Iowa Supreme Court ruling. Dan reads from a New York Times editorial ("Iowa Decency" http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/05/opinion/05sun3.html?_r=2&ref=opinion ) and asks for listener feedback on the prospect of Muscatine as a wedding destination for gay couples. A solitary caller declares gay marriage "sick" and urges Dan, "Don't promote it." The 1868 civil-rights decision (mentioned as a precedent) desegregated Muscatine schools, and thus all Iowa schools, 86 years ahead of the US Supreme Court.
