Cognitive Dissonance

"Democracy! Bah! When I hear that I reach for my feather boa!" - Allen Ginsberg

On a day where headlines read "Iran executes three men for sodomy" and "Utah man attacked in third anti-gay assault in recent weeks", I saw this outside the Arts & Sciences building at the University of Wyoming. Someone laid a few flowers on the Matthew Shepard memorial bench outside. I’m not sure who put the flowers there, or why, but it’s a beautiful act of kindness, even if the recent headlines have nothing to do with this. 

This is a close-up of the plaque, from Fritz Keppler on Finding Brokeback:
