I won’t pretend that this post is anything other than an expression of admiration and excitement for Mary J. Blige. So, if you don’t want to read me glowing up Mary J for too many words, turn back now.  It has been a little over a year since Mary J.

Australia voted. And the majority said YES to gay marriage. The majority was 62%. Who are the minority? Is the minority Mel Gibson?
