Today's Mighty Oak

Muffin, Prince of Denmark and Deborah the “Man Witch” No, not Manwich. Man. Witch.



Alright, let’s see what we have today.  Lots of political news, so fair warning.

Oh, the irony of the NRA creating the database they’ve been screaming about for years.  Oh, the irony.

Rick Perry: Vocally hates Obamacare, quietly asks for $100 million benefit from it.  You know, because he hates it.  So much.

I could probably talk about this over at the King of Spades, but as it turns out, schools with anti-homophobia policies are safer…for all their students.  Amazing.

But then again, according to Justice Scalia, we’re an “invented” minority, and thus don’t deserve equal rights..  I wonder when I first came into being?

And here’s the three articles that make me furious.  An Iraq vet was booed at a city council meeting…because he’s gay.

A church in Tennessee kicks out a family…for supporting their daughter, who just happens to be a lesbian.

And lastly, an interracial couple gets assaulted, and has homophobic slurs thrown at them (they had been out with a gay friend), in New York City, which has this rash of homophobic attacks lately.

Well, this has been a depressing post.  In happier news, I’m heading to a reading of “The Birdcage” tomorrow as a fundraiser for the Zoo (the flamingo enclosure, specifically), and this Saturday is the City of Play Festival.  Come downtown to play some new games and run around downtown, it will be fun!  And if the games aren’t fun, we’ll make it fun!
