Re: “Do you think same-sex marriage should be legal?” (Call to readers, Feb.27), I think it’s a civil rights issue. Gays pay taxes, are regulated by the State of California to file and declare joint income as if married and if living with a same-sex partner. For all the same reasons that other states have approved same-sex marriages, the military has changed its policy and the recent decision on the Prop. 8 issue, all points in the direction of doing what’s right in the “real world.” This country professes to be the greatest country in the world which includes civil rights for all. What part of our Constitution excludes any group of people from their civil rights? Yes, I think same sex-marriage should be legal. Beryl Mayne, Roseville
