The Marietta Daily Journal published an article on Friday examining the reaction of Cobb residents in the wake of the recent U.S. Supreme Court marriage arguments and the viral Facebook profile picture-swap of red equality symbols that was impossible to miss.

The article, written by Jon Gillooly, profiles several pro-gay rights OTP'ers and closes with an interview with current Georgia Republican Party Chairperson Sue Everhart, who makes a few outlandish statements in defense of “traditional” marriage.

Atlanta City Hall to ‘go red’ for World AIDS Day

You may be seeing red at Atlanta City Hall on Thursday and through December. But not for the usual reasons.

Mayor Kasim Reed and the city of Atlanta are partnering with (RED) to bring awareness about HIV and AIDS by having city hall lit up with red lights beginning tomorrow and throughout the month. The main mission of (RED) is to "have a world where virtually no child is born with HIV by 2015."

Atlanta took part in the international event of illuminating well-known landmarks last year for the first time. Other sites lit up red last year included the Empire State Building, the Sydney Opera House and the London Eye.
