Actually, Some Good News

I got this notice in email today from Change.org. It caught my eye because of mention of a MLB team:
And the Minnesota Twins make 5. To cap it all off, CBS reported on Tuesday that the Minnesota Twins will be the 5th pro baseball team to make an "It Gets Better" video to help prevent suicide by teens who are bullied for being gay. Every team that's made a video (Twins, Red Sox, Cubs, Mariners, and Giants) has done so after a local Change.org member started a petition asking them to. As these victories add up, the cumulative effect is eroding the culture of homophobia in men's pro sports.
Well, I didn't know that. In fact, I barely knew there was a campaign "It Gets Better" going on, much less that the likes of the Chicago Cubs were involved in it.
