It's been a busy few days in the news and many of us have been glued to our "sets" (i.e. Twitter) following the filibuster in the Texas senate and, this morning, the Supreme Court's historic decision to strike down DOMA (the defense of marriage act), the 1996 law which denied federal benefits to legally married same-sex couples. In a cute act of apparent support for gay rights, Google has implemented a rainbow search box for searches related to gay marriage, such as "gay" and "lesbian": What do you think of Google's show of support? Should the search giant stay out of politics? You can read about the significance of the rainbow flag to the gay rights movement here . UPDATE: Though we only noticed this today, Danny Sullivan points out that the rainbow search box was already in place for Gay Pride Month.
