COURTS: Gay softball is a judicial matter?

Re: “Softball league can limit nongays, judge says” (TNT, 6-3).

In a time when we’re firing teachers, seemingly unable to manage tolls properly and have no money to provide basic health care to children, we have the time and the federal organization to adjudicate whether organizers of a gay softball tournament held in 2008 were correct to vacate the second-place finish of a team because that team included too many bisexuals.

Are you kidding me!?

I believe everyone has the right to live the lifestyle they choose and society has a duty to protect those rights, but could we please find a bit more productive uses for our public funds than arguing the results of a softball tournament?
