    I am just reveling in the whole scenario. 20 some years ago, active in the Anchorage homophobia battle, I was driving down a 4 lane street on a beautiful summer afternoon.  In front of me, a couple of gals in a white jeep appeared to be coming back from a day in the mountains. They stopped at a traffic light just in front of me and the next thing I knew, my face broke into a big smile with some happy chuckles as I watched them start a little necking. In Anchorage!

    Two decades later this incident happened, has gone viral and been thoroughly condemned and ridiculed, with some great humor here and at the mall's facebook site. It's another wonderful sign of the progress we've made toward winning minds and hearts.

    The message to the stragglers who won't keep up with change is to either get with it or be left behind.

    In a world of anger, hate and violence, the majority here are now saying 'it is Wrong to tell two people Not to love each other."
