Final Note

Gay rights got two wins today

Kai Ryssdal May 9, 2012

This final note on the way out, which we’ll file under the category of apparently genuine coincidences.

President Obama came out today in favor of gay marriage, as you might have possibly somehow heard. Kinda big news.

Which gets us to the coincidence. The closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange today? Rung by the executive director of the pro-gay rights Family Equality Council.
