Maureen Dowd wrote about Gavin Newsom and same-sex marriage on Sunday
(12 April) in the NYT ("Demi in Des Moines?", p. 9 of Week in Review):

He said he had been rereading Martin Luther King's "Letter From
Birmingham Jail" and feels he needs to "do more, now and better."

... "And now people are saying 2010? That's another critical year to
hold Congress, and we've got statehouses across the nation. 2012?
Another presidential year. 2014? Another Congressional year. Wait does
almost always mean never. That was Dr. King's point."
