House Republicans voted this week to kill a major part of the census and to rein in the Obama administration's lawsuits against states over immigration laws, voter-identification laws and gay-marriage statutes - but gave a thumbs-up to Mr. Obama's battle with states that have medical marijuana laws.
"Yes," said waterman Daniel Webster. "I ate his Smith Island cake and a dozen of his oysters and complained to him the whole time. His oysters give me indigestion. The ones I fry, don't."
