Terrific Tuesday Tidings: The Advocate, Cause and Effect, and Alien Invasions

It's Tuesday and that means it's time for my ongoing quest to become a more positive person. Here are the news stories that made me happy this week:
  • For the first time in more than 30 years, The Advocate, the leading LGBT news outlet, has endorsed a candidate for President, Barack Obama.  It's a fantastic piece and an excellent reminder for anyone who thinks that Democrats and Republicans are exactly the same, they are....unless you care about gay people, women, people of color, the poor, or the middle class.  Then there are some fairly important differences.
  • A special thank you to Anderson Cooper for coming out of the closet.  I'm sure it couldn't have been easy, but as one of the most popular figures in cable news doing so is just one more reminder to all the homophobes out there that gay people aren't some scary other but that's nice fella on the CNN.
