    The clerk seemed to have a found a reasonable and workable solution by taking away all marriage duties from the same-sex objectors. The only deputy clerks that will be performing marriages will be those that are okay with whomever walks in the door.

    The other deputy clerks will get to do more of whatever else they do in the County Clerk's office.  I have to imagine that performing marriage is lot more fun than filing paperwork or giving out dog licenses.

    If she had just fired them for not doing their job, most likely she would end up having to deal with endless lawsuits.
