Eastern Europe roils through a fascist terror, Sochi rumbles before the tumble, and Bill Nye gets dragged into the primordial ooze, as the AggreGAYtor teaches the world to sing in perfect harmony... and to brush its teeth.

The Good

Visiting Austin. Looking?

A gay ambassador to Russia? It could happen, when Moscow freezes over, but the Olympics are really giving Putin the sadsies.

While liberals hate on Coke for sponsoring Sochi and conservatives hate it for touting America’s diversity, some are hating it for trying to hook kids of color.

Latvia may be exempted from the wave of anti-gay terror campaigns, thanks to some good leadership.

The Bad

The discredited Regnerus (UT) study is being used to deny people rights. Again.

Utah almost got an anti-discrimination bill, but it was scrapped.

Anti-gay terrorist attacks are spreading across Eastern Europe, now into Bosnia, and also Azerbaijan, where homophobes threw rocks at funeral attendees.

The Fugly

Piers Morgan did worse than Katie Couric (callback) after interviewing trans advocate Janet Mock.

Bill Nye, a definite science type of guy, had to spend almost three hours playing factual whack-a-mole with a religio-capitalist flim-flam man.

It Came from the Tubes
