Amazon founder kindles pro-equality fires

by Jeremy Hooper

Add online shopping to the National Organization For Marriage's growing list of no-nos:

Which reminds me, Amazon just placed the (newly edited, second edition) paperback version of my book on sale for a nice $9.35 (Kindle is at $9.50). I'm certainly happy to be working with a company that respects my marriage. Wonder if Maggie Gallagher will keep her book on the site?
