I forgot to mention that my fair city of Portland, Oregon, woke up with a new mayor yesterday. Hizzonah Sam Adams will be the city’s first openly gay mayor. This also makes Portland the largest city in the country to be headed up by an openly gay man.
(WordPress is being grumpy and doesn’t seem to want to let me add an photo of our new mayor. Google him. He’s kind of dashingly hot in a very dorky, Portland, thick-rimmed glasses kind of way.)
