A Day WITH Sunshine

Here’s the historic part of the story:  Florida has its first openly gay lawmaker.  Yesterday voters in Miami Beach chose David Richardson over three other Democratic primary candidates, and since Richardson has no Republican opponent in the general election, the seat in the Florida House looks to be his.

Here’s the giggle-rich part of the story:  the district he’ll represent used to be home to Anita Bryant.

So raise a glass of orange juice to Florida’s first out legislator, because orange juice, after all, “isn’t just for breakfast anymore!”
