The Homosexuals

Hey there!  It’s been far too long since I last posted to this blog.  Things have been crazy at work lately and I’ve apparently fallen off of the blogging horse for a bit.  I’ll be posting again soon, but in the meantime here’s an interesting clip I found after going on a short Mike Wallace TV clip binge.  It’s a recap version of a TV special he hosted in 1967 about homosexuals.  It was one of the first TV specials to ever seriously address the subject of homosexuality.

As far as social issues go, it often feels like this country is stuck in the past and our slow march toward a better connection to objective reality is agonizingly slow.  But, after watching this clip you can see just how far this country has come in the past few decades.  We still have a long way to go, but if you look at the long game, things are definitely moving in the right direction on many fronts.

  1. Fascinating peak into the past, one not sufficiently far behind us..

  2. Great to have you back.

  3. It’s so true that change often seems too slow, but it is good to be reminded of some of the more positive changes that have somehow happened during all that slowness.
