The equal rights open line



The Monday night line commences. Closing out:

* MARRIAGE EQUALITY: U.S. Sen. Tim Johnson threw his support behind marriage equality. That leaves only three Democratic senators in opposition — Joe Manchin, Mary Landrieu and Mark Pryor — with 50 Dems, two independents and two Republicans in support.

* NEITHER GOD NOR EXXON WILL BE MOCKED: Twitter has taken down the parody account, Exxon Cares, which made fun of the giant oil company and its response to the big oil spill in Mayflower.

* BUT TV NEWS WILL BE MOCKED: The Arkansas TV News blog posts commentary from former KARK anchor Ron Gardner on recent local TV news coverage of the Mayflower spill. Toxic.

* CLINTON FOUNDATION NOW A FAMILY AFFAIR: The Clinton Foundation, whose global work reaches far beyond supporting the presidential center, has been renamed the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation. Chelsea Clinton's increasing role there is particularly significant, I'd guess. He work there was featured in a profile in last Sunday's Parade magazine.
