A Good Egg
Easter's annual White House Egg Roll will be open to gay families, apparently because First Lady Laura Bush says so. Maybe this doesn't rank up there with starting a war with Iran, but it still seems like an important admission that times have changed.
The decision of over two hundred gay parents with children to attend the traditional event was a reaction to the Bush-appointed Secretary of Education Margaret Spelling's attacks on the episode of PBS's "Postcards From Buster" that featured lesbian parents as normal and well-adjusted. The national Family Pride Coalition helps organize such events.
Maybe Laura Bush truly is a good egg. That's probably why her poll numbers are so much higher than her husband's.
