We had even better posts than usual this week plus we had two big announcements about site news. First we announced that popular blogger and Twitter guru David Badash would be joining us as a TBP blogger. Plus, the lawsuit threat from Rockstar Energy Drink was settled after they agreed to donate $100k+ to LGBT organizations and implement or upgrade several new corporate policies. Here's the posts I thought were the best of this week.
