US to sign UN Gay Rights Agreement
This is front page news all over Europe, and I don't see it in any of my usual US news sources...
State Department spokesman Robert Wood said the Obama administration, which took office eight weeks ago, would now join 66 other U.N. member states who supported a U.N. statement in December that condemned human rights violations based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
My only guess as to why I'm not seeing it anywhere in US sites is that CNN.com etc. are prepping their servers for Dittohead Overload Syndrome (that one was for fellow geeks out there... anybody?) - basically when the site gets too much traffic from trolls trying to post nasty comments and ends up crashing for a while!
Amidst the recent confusing and sometimes disturbing news stories, finally some good news again!
