Great job by reporter Jamie Kirchick on RT (Russia Today).

The Box Turtle Bulletin has a followup on what happened to Kirchick after his television interview which, by the way, was in Stockholm.  It seems the Russian government has long tentacles. 

He has since said the taxi driver in the car he was in on his way to the airport in Sweden when the taxi driver received a phone call instructing him to drop Kirchick off at the side of the road.

“So about halfway down the highway on the way to the airport, my driver gets a phone call from his boss saying that the car ride has been cancelled and that he’ll have to drop me off on the side of the road,” he said.

“And I told him that I would pick up the tab. But at the end, actually, at the airport, he said that the ride was free, so maybe we have some anti-Putin activists in the Swedish taxi company.”

Several posts here - hope that's not too much at one time. This reporter bowled me over in a good way.

I'm not demonstrative but this made me want to cheer.

Marriage equality battle moves to New Mexico, with a twist.

 

"the state's marriage statutes are gender neutral and do not expressly prohibit Doña Ana County from issuing marriage licenses to same-gender couples."

Oh - on the linked story below.  I'm awed by Greenwald's courage.  Over a my life, I've sought LGBTI heroes.  While this story has a long narrative to play out, Greenwald looks to me like he has some hero DNA.  We'll see what ensues.

I'm impressed with the convergence of two LGBT / government overreach stories in the news.  One was the revelation of Manning's transgender struggle.  The other was this:

No "big deal" about the gay aspect - the story regards the gov't over-reach and 1984-style spying on citizens; and those who exposing those actions.
