A US Weekly cover shot of Elton John with his partner and new baby was too much for a Harps grocery store in Arkansas. They plastered a so-called "family shield" on it to protect young innocents from so much happiness.

Update: They took the shield down. Lesson here: Speak up. 

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Won't Exist.
