Here in Ferndale, many have followed suit, going red for marriage equality, by sharing the Human Rights Campaign's logo to show their support for LGBT equality in Michigan.
You may have wondered at the logo showing up all over Facebook — a red square with two pink horizontal lines and folks changing their profile photos to this symbol that stands for marriage equality. It's an effort by the Human Rights Campaign that coincides with oral Supreme Court hearings Tuesday and Wednesday in Washington, D.C. on the issue. The equality symbol signifies that marriage equality really is all about love, the HRC post says, adding that in addition to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender supporters, heterosexuals are especially encouraged to do so as "straight allies."

Do you think the city of Ferndale should have a community swimming pool? There's a new Facebook page where residents are rallying around the idea and discussing possible ways to make it happen.
