President Obama Becomes the First American President to Back Same-Sex Marriage

“I’ve just concluded, for me, personally, it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married,” Obama said in an interview with ABC News.

Obama, who had previously backed strong protections for gay and lesbian couples, said his position had evolved partly after talking to his two daughters Malia and Sasha who had some friends who had same-sex parents.

“It wouldn’t dawn on them that somehow their friends’ parents would be treated differently. It doesn’t make sense to them and frankly, that’s the kind of thing that prompts a change in perspective,” Obama said in the interview.

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a bear in a tree
Never knowing which branch to cling to
When the rangers shot thee
And I would have liked to have known you
But I was just a kid
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did…………

RIP

Hamster Demands Butter and Salt for Corn

An Indonesian hamster named Wiko has staged a non-violent protest that’s quickly garnered worldwide support. The #OccupyCorn movement expresses outrage that Wiko be served plain old corn, without any of the fixins that make it so delicious — chief among them, butter and salt.

“Maybe the fat cats on Wall Street can afford butter and salt, but where does that leave Wiko?” asked a protester at a rally in Jakarta.

Sources close to the situation say that Wiko refuses to eat the corn until his demands are met.
