Public Forum: Tony Kushner & Rachel Maddow
"Admit it: you want Rachel Maddow and Tony Kushner to be your gay lefty adoptive parents.

We are living right now through a sea change moment that is not one big sea change all happening at once. It’s made up of lots of teeny, tiny little drops, that are making this change happen in the whole country based on a lot of very tiny points of pressure. All these pioneers, in all these places across the country, people you never heard of, people doing what they can with their own regular people lives, changing the places where they live. And sometimes it is public officials who are doing it, too, in ways large and small.
