What They're Saying

-- Laura Doughty, the deputy chief executive of gay rights organization Stonewall, which has sent rainbow-colored shoe laces to all professional clubs in England and encouraged players to don them during next weekend's games in support of a campaign to kick homophobia out of soccer. (The Guardian)
