    I’d be happy, too, if I were getting a $363,053 tax refund.

    @yaoming: Amazing how conservatives flip flop. First they don’t want more taxes, then they want committed same sex adults to pay more in taxes. My brain is really hurting just trying to understand it. I guess it’s only the wealthy they want tax cuts for. I have no problem with someone who wants to make alot of money. I just have a problem with someone who wants ALL the money.

    Edie Windsor: Person of the Year.

    If the History of Gay America is ever written, her beautiful mug should be on the cover.
