Free at last

The New Yorker cover this week show Bert & Ernie, cuddling on the couch, watching Supreme Court DOMA coverage.

And it’s kind of a wild story how this became the cover:

“It’s amazing to witness how attitudes on gay rights have evolved in my lifetime,” said Jack Hunter, the artist behind next week’s cover, “Moment of Joy.” Hunter, who originally submitted his image, unsolicited, to a Tumblr, continued, “This is great for our kids, a moment we can all celebrate.”
