I don’t know her personally, nor am I familiar with her political views, but congratulations are due to Denise Simmons of Cambridge, Massachusetts, who was just installed as the very first Black (openly) Lesbian Mayor in the history of the United States!  (h/t the grammarkillers of Queerty)  This is truly a sign of encouragement for those who feel progress has stalled in our country, and a historic moment for which we should pause and reflect. 

Which should obviously be followed by a joke/question: does this bode well for Hillary or Obama?
