What in the World: Marriage equality sweeps nation, a sing-in for Mike Brown, and the return of Twin Peaks 

MARRIAGE EQUALITY: The U.S. Supreme Court declined to weigh in on same-sex marriage cases in five states, effectively upholding the prior decisions by appeals courts to remove bans on marriage for gay and lesbian couples. As a result, 24 U.S. states now have equal marriage rights for LGBT people, and that number will likely increase to 30 when states in the relevant districts are included. (Think Progress)

PROTEST: Instead of sit-in, protesters in Ferguson recently pulled off a sing-in, with a flashmob style action at the St. Louis Symphony. About 50 protestors called for justice for the unarmed teen shot by police there, singing, "Justice for Mike Brown is justice for us all, Which side are you on friend? Which side are you on?" during intermission from throughout the theatre to a mixed reception. (CNN

TWIN PEAKS: "I have no idea where this will lead us, but I have a definite feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange," Agent Cooper said in the cult classic TV show "Twin Peaks." And now, following suspiciously synchronized tweets from David Lynch and Mark Frost posting "that gum you like is going to come back in style," the offbeat director has confirmed via press release that the show will return for nine episodes on Showtime in 2016, set in the present day.
