Over at A Healing Spirit, Cassara offers a conversation that she and one of her closest friends had about the coming out experience in “The Gift of Gay: When Your Kid Tells You They're Gay.”

Why Wall Street deserves the Reddit battle

Tom Sightings from Sightings Over Sixty picks up on the Reddit phenomenon from  last week, billed as a revolt against Wall Street. In "I'm Mad as Hell ...," Sightings acknowledges that for the most part it was a media-hyped fad. But, quoting a letter from a doctor, he brings up a serious and current issue that perhaps sparked this revolt as well as others we've seen in the last few years.
