Amazon Founder Pledges $2.5 Million to Support WA Same-Sex Marriage

Jeff Bezos and wife MacKenzie Bezos support Referendum 74 to legalize gay marriage, affirming a law passed earlier by the legislature. There are well-financed opponents so this is a meaningful gesture.

Both Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer donated $100K to support Ref 74. Jeff was emailed by a former Amazon employee and asked if he'd be willing to give $100K or $200K. Looks like he raised the bar on 'em. :)

Wally the Red Sox Mascot Was Stolen

I know some of us like mascots costumes but this is the wrong way to go about acquiring a fursuit! :P

The Green Monster was evidently taken at around 2:20pm today. By 4pm, they'd tracked it down and said that an employee had the costume. No details have yet been provided on whether this was a misunderstanding or actual attempted theft.
