As predicted, the media is still all over the "openly gay" status of Salt Lake City Councilman Stan Penfold.  ---

Well, OK, even if being gay isn't really very remarkable in this day and age, being the first gay member (as far as we know) of the Council probably is.

Personally, I'm excited about having some new blood in city government -- the fact that he happens to be gay is icing on the cake. I'd like to openly wish Mr. Penfold good luck as he begins his council term.
