He won’t suspend his doomed defense of the state ban on same-sex marriage because he doesn’t think that the state constitution is “really” illegal — as opposed to just illegal.

But some people still want to collect, and even eat, the slimy invaders. The Agriculture Department is trying to stop them. Since June, department authorities have seized more than 1,200 live specimens of the large snails, also known as giant African land snails, all of them traced back to one person in Georgia, who was selling them illegally.
