Mayor Bloomberg, others, march in the gay friendly St. Patrick's parade

I was sent a link by a friend about the gay friendly St. Patrick's Day Parades in Ireland and for example in NYC.

I was struck by Sam Yoon's comment that next year if he gets elected he will march with gays and rainbows. He is an elected official, if he had real courage he would have marched with them in this year's parade. It reminded me of elected officials telling Martin Luther King 'just wait your turn, it isn't time yet'. I have always loved his response "The time is always right to do what is right."
