Morning Sweep

Governor Spitzer talks to the netroots community on The Albany Project. He raises a number of issues, including his continuing desire to sign a bill providing marriage equality for all New Yorkers.

The Staten Island Advance has a feature article on the hostile environment many youth face when they come out of the closet.

David Mixner provides a list of tough questions he wants Presidential candidates to answer on Thursday at the HRC/Logo Presidential Forum.

And on a sadder note, songwriter Lee Hazlewood passed away over the weekend. Hazlewood is best known for his hit tune “These Boots are Made for Walkin’,” that he wrote for Nancy Sinatra in the early 1960s. For those of you who were around in the 1980s for the video bar phenomena, “Boots” was always very big with the crowd. For those of you who are somewhat younger and think you’re being clever when you say to folks like me “I don’t know what you’re talkin’ about,” have a look at two equally fabulous versions of the video here and here and know that these are the boot steps you’re walkin’ in. Thanks Lee!
