Pride parade is next week here in Chicago.  I'm kind of surprised Portland has their pride parade in direct competition with Father's Day.  Like you, I'm also a bystander.....great people watching, which is a great pastime in itself.  Last year's parade in Chicago was absolutely insane.  Usually there's between 400,000 to 500,000 people, but last year they estimated close to 750,000 showed up.  The weather was picture-perfect which tends to bring out more people.  Too many people crammed into the relatively small area of Boystown.  It presented such a dangerous problem with overcrowding that this year they've changed the parade route (first time in over 25 years) and extended it to spread out the crowd.

Sentient, I'm sorry I dragged up a bad period in your life.  I've always enjoyed the dark humor of the Addams Family, so I was approaching your reference with levity and lightheartedness.  I had no idea the morbid aspect was actually real for you, so I apologize to you.  You've related quite a dreary story.  Thanks for being so open and for having the courage to share it.

The Addams Family?!!  That's really cool.  You need to explain that one to us.

I haven't the slightest idea who thought what about me and when.  I'd have to sit down and interview my parents and siblings.  I wonder if my parents and one older brother and two older sisters talked about it amongst themselves or with each other.  To this day we've never had that conversation.  I can honestly say that I was NEVER treated ill or made fun of by any family member for any perceived sexuality or femininity, although I'm sure it was apparent at a young age.  I have a great family.  Growing up we were probably a cross between the hi-jinx of the Brady Brunch (without the oozing saccharine) and the Partridge Family (without the showbiz and the hipness.)  All I can tell you is that I knew I was "different" at a very young age (4 or 5), and to me being different meant feeling free to be myself, eccentric and refreshingly unique.  My family always embraced those qualities in me in a non-gay way.  They still do.

The Joel Burns speech made me cry but it was a good cry! Its one of the most heartfelt speeches i have ever had the pleasure to hear.

Dan Savage may need to have a go at this Fisher person.

In April, Mitt Romney hired Richard Grenell, an openly gay man, to serve as his campaign's national security spokesman. Within hours, Grenell was being attacked by a Christian radio talk show host named Bryan Fischer, whoseFocal Point call-in show reaches more than 1 million listeners a day.

Nine days after Fischer began his on-air attack, Grenell resigned. He had been the only openly gay member of Romney's campaign staff.

Sure, Sentient, Lincoln's house counts, just like going to Hawaii counts as going to a foreign country.

Every 50 states should take a clue from the Simpson's and rename them "Capital City." 

I've had a guided tour of the state capital building in Austin, TX.  It's a beautiful building and the newer addition is nicely done, but I couldn't help but think about all the horrendous legislation that's spewed out of there over the decades.
