  1. Thanks for plugging a bit of opera, Andy! Opera has of course a great gay tradition that a lot of younger types have lost touch with. The Met in NYC recently a gay and lesbian singles night which apparently drew a big crowd. Not being single, I didn't go...

  2. While beauty is where you find it, I would submit that Linda Evangelista is the most beautiful woman in the world.

  6. Michael Sandy's story is so tragic. It boggles my mind how three thinking human beings can sit together and plot something like that. Reminds me why it's still important to fight the good fight..
