“After both President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made impassioned speeches Tuesday urging gay rights abroad, Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry issued a response decrying the “deeply objectionable” gay lifestyle. ‘This is just the most recent example of an administration at war with people of faith in this country,’ Perry said in a statement. ‘Investing tax dollars promoting a lifestyle many Americas of faith find so deeply objectionable is wrong. President Obama has again mistaken America’s tolerance for different lifestyles with an endorsement of those lifestyles.’

Finally, from Wired: “Broadway revivals might be old hat, but this weekend saw a reinvigoration of the Occupy Wall Street movement when a raucous mix of performance artists, musicians and even a needle-swallowing carny descended upon the Theater District for a 24-hour guerrilla festival called Occupy Broadway.
“A lot of [the Occupy movement] gets spun as a fight with cops, giving the impression that it’s dangerous to go out into the streets…. We want to use public space to inspire people,” said Claire Lebowitz, one of several organizers of the first Occupy Broadway. “It’s gotta look like a party; it’s gotta look like a shit-ton of fun.”
