Kentucky's Rowan County Clerk has been found in contempt of court and is in jail. " Judge orders defiant Kentucky clerk to jail after she refuses to issue marriage licenses." We'll have to wait to see what the next step in this drama is... There are provisions for people in the County Clerk's office to issue licenses in her absence, so hopefully, they will start doing that today. I read that the judge thinks fines are not appropriate, because people would likely contribute to pay them for her.

"The New Colossus BY EMMA LAZARUS Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame, With conquering limbs astride from land to land; Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame. “Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore....
