In the world of politics, non-decisions can sometimes be just as important decisions.
 
So it was this week, with a number of institutions making critical choices not to act.
 
The U.S. Supreme Court declined to get involved in the legal battle over Oregon’s same-sex marriage law, which was recently overturned by a federal judge.
 
The backers of a ballot initiative in Oregon to privatize liquor sales also opted not to bother with it, for now.
 
To sort through this curious week of non-decisions, our political guys Bill Lunch and Jeff Mapes  joined Geoff Norcross for this week’s Friday chat. Bill  is OPB’s Political Analyst. Jeff  is the senior political reporter for The Oregonian.
