Google pays tribute to the legacy of artist and AIDS activist Keith Haring with today's Google Doodle, in honor of his birthday. Haring died in 1990 from AIDS-related complications.

The conservative group One Million Moms is taking a second shot at JC Penney, after protesting the company naming Ellen DeGeneres as its spokesperson earlier this year. This time around, the anti-gay organization is offended by the retailer's May Mother's Day catalogue, particularly by the inclusion of a photo of a lesbian couple with their two daughters.
