I don't follow college or professional sports but some stories need to be told beyond the sports world. Dale Hansen's comment in the video below needs to be heard. He had the audacity to shine the light on the hypocrisy of the NFL about its draft picks. Hint: you can commit heinous crimes but don't dare be open about your sexuality.

Congratulations, Michael Sam, on finding the courage to tell the world who you are and thanks, Dale Hansen, for telling us the truth about how he will be seen when it comes to draft picks.

The video is from Channel 8, WFAA, ABC affiliate in Dallas, TX.

I realize that these are a couple days late (I've been occupied), but they were too good not to share.

Quickie- Anderson Cooper: "The Fact Is, I'm Gay."

I am so thrilled that it's like this, just meh, "I've got blue eyes." Andrew has the whole thing (must read), but I like this alot.

Recently, however, I’ve begun to consider whether the unintended outcomes of maintaining my privacy outweigh personal and professional principle. It’s become clear to me that by remaining silent on certain aspects of my personal life for so long, I have given some the mistaken impression that I am trying to hide something - something that makes me uncomfortable, ashamed or even afraid. This is distressing because it is simply not true.

I’ve also been reminded recently that while as a society we are moving toward greater inclusion and equality for all people, the tide of history only advances when people make themselves fully visible. There continue to be far too many incidences of bullying of young people, as well as discrimination and violence against people of all ages, based on their sexual orientation, and I believe there is value in making clear where I stand.

The fact is, I'm gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn’t be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud.
