Good for NY for legalizing gay marriage! This is a step in the right direction.

Wonder what's in Cuba that Anderson will be diving for.

Wow, it's not often that the "Breaking News" is truly breaking and happening right when 360 is on the air. Good job to both the NY state legislature and 360.

How long will it be before the U.S. Supreme Court makes a Loving v. Virginia type of decision and gay marriage is legalized throughout the country? Before 1967 different states had different rules about inter-racial marriage and Loving v. Virginia was the case that made it legal in every state.

I'm guessing another generation, maybe two. Today's younger people are much more okay with gay marriage than older people.

Don't know what's in the water off Cuba. Sunken pirate treasure? A secret dolphin university? Jimmy Hoffa?

What a great moment in history for New York--it looked a little touch and go for a while, but the NY Senate did the right thing and Gov. Cuomo's determination to get same sex marriage legalized was really impressive. Hopefully more states will follow and President Obama will evolve into full support. Enjoyed watching all of 360's coverage on this.

Now we have to work on the states who have Constitutional Amendments banning same sex marriage, mine being one of them. Thank God some people realized that it's not about the sex, if sex was taken out of the equation by those who oppose it they would probably be for it.

Rock on NY! Good for them. It was an interesting show last night with the breaking news.

Also went and read the blog's response to AC and it's pretty juvenile, but not everyone understands that sometimes things are supposed to be "humorous".

Broadway Bound Bunny said...

@TediB the Publisher of the Daily Caller is Tucker Carlson, need I say more. It just goes to show you some sites, especially like the DC don't do their research and take things at face value, that's why I never read 'em.

Tucker Carlson is a half-wit who couldn't even make on DWTS.
Having said that, presumably, AC knew in advance that Carlson is the publisher, and he did put him on the Ridiculist.
Carlson in turn went after his ratings or lack there of.
Something tells me, AC better develop a thicker skin for his daytime show. Not everyone in the "biz" will have his best interest at heart. There are others out there besides Carlson Tucker with the same mentality, unfortunately.
