Your thoughts

Good for him. I know I would never have had the balls to do this when I was in high school. I hope his family is very proud of him.

I remember four years ago being in 10th grade and wondering why PFLAG's website was blocked at in Hanover County schools in VA. So I wonder if this is a more widespread issue than just TN.

Hey, that was a very straightfoward (no pun intended) news report. KUDOS to that TV station and to the student!
Just like Jame Neely who, I think, singlehandedly got the Vermont legislators to vote for Marriage Equality.
Yep, I will keep sending $$ to ACLU.

LOrion: I actually interned at this station when I was in college. The studios are in a really cool old mansion.

I drive past that same mansion a couple of times a week going to work or to the couple of bars I seem to end up at, though sometimes I take the ever more obnoxious back route.
