Bert and Ernie Come Out: You Go Boys!

Moment of Joy

Despite the controversy surrounding next week's New Yorker cover, I love it! Inappropriate? Promoting a gay agenda? Trivializing an important moment in civil rights history? Nope. It's just a sweet symbol for gay marriage and love.

Discrimination still exists and most states still forbid same-sex marriage, but the train has left the station and there's no going back. Homophobia is losing steam, and this week's Supreme Court decisions mark a giant step toward equality for all Americans.

Fernando, I just loved this cover and even hesitated to pass it on to Jim. -Michael

I was tempted to buy this edition of the New Yorker in Berlin, but at 12,90€, it was a bit expensive.
