Most people are aware of (sick of?) Steve Zack's Claude Pepper impression.
Less known is my spot-on impression of friend and noted mensch Burton Young.
Sure it sometimes lapses into a passable George Burns, but when you think about it, so does Burt.
Anyway, Burt knows what he is talking about, and has this to say about the ban on gay adoption in Florida:
Florida’s bizarre “law” was passed more than 30 years ago during the anti-gay hysteria of Anita Bryant’s Save Our Children campaign. The ban on gay adoption was borne out of prejudice, plain and simple. It had no scientific predicate. Its backers were nothing more than lynch-type rabble rousers.On an unrelated note, people are still writing angry letters about George L. Metcalfe's "ad" in the Florida Bar News.
I like how Burt cites his possible contemporary Charles Dickens:
“If the law supposed that,” said Mr. Bumble, …”the law is an ass …” (Dickens, Pickwick Papers, [1836-37]).Indeed.
