Topical, but sceptical...

Gosh, cartoonists respond quickly to events these days, don't they?

Yes, it's good news, but... when I found this cartoon last night, I read the line as "remembered more for being African-American."

So, I suppose that's a projection of my own scepticism (superimposing itself on the cartoonist's triumphalism), imagining this might be a barbed commentary reflecting some less exultant responses in America's gay community - many of whom feel they've been waiting too long for this week's stand.
