Leads are my specialty. I try to make them concise and creative, but it took me close to 20 minutes of staring my computer screen before this lead came to me. It earned praise from my editor, so I demand praise from you.

There’s no place like Home Depot, unless you’re one of the Fortune 500 company’s gay employees.

Despite its reputation as a champion of diversity, the country’s largest home-improvement chain is urging its shareholders to reject a resolution that would include gays in its anti-discrimination policy.

“Home Depot claims to bar employment discrimination, but its written policies do not explicitly bar discrimination based on sexual orientation,” the resolution states. “By implementing a written policy prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation, our company will ensure a respectful and supportive atmosphere for all employees and enhance its competitive edge.”
