Tony Norman's article, "Some prefer civic wrongs to civil rights" is overall well written and uses good quotes, such as those from Ms. Buchanan. He supports his opinion of overall equality by tying it together with what was going on in Arizona. After quoting news hosts and conservatives who are intolerant to homosexuals, he relates this ongoing battle with the battle for civil rights in the 1950's. I would say that was a great point to make supporting his argument. He uses these quotes, along with the following quotes from Buchanan, to emphasize his point of why civil rights laws are in tact and the whole idea of allowing discrimination is absurd. If I was his editor, I would ask him to go more in depth on the subject and dig deeper into the paradox that is being argued about. Overall, this piece was well written by Norman because rather than just stating his opinion up front, he discusses the other side's argument and disproves it. He feels strongly about the matter and it is shown through his writing. Some may find Norman aggressive with his writing, but he is nonetheless a great journalist writing about important matters.
