    Andy is one of my heroes. I’m happy to know him, to count him as friend. He’s terrific in every way.

    don’t miss his “best little boy in the world” under the nom de plume john reid – the first gay-affirming book i read, which frankly changed my life

    This is why Obama is going to lose the election: he’s talking about things that are on a low priority list for millions of Americans who are out of work.

    As for equality, well and good. But where’s the proof? Clinton signed DOMA into law, Obama failed to rescind it – in fact, his Justice Department defended it in court…get the picture? Stop looking at the Democrats through rose-colored glasses.

    TBLBITW is one of the first books I read when I was trying to cope with being gay back in the mid-70s. It made a huge difference in my life. After I learned that “John Reid” was Andrew Tobias, I foolishly decided to send him an email–just to say thanks. He replied! He was warm and gracious, and I was hugely impressed that he would take the time. I think the world of this man, and it makes me very happy to see him in such a prominent role in the DNC and at the Democratic Convention.

    Jason your hatred for gay people shines through in every posting you make. In fact, hatred–just hatred–shines through in every posting you make. As to Obama “talking about things that are on a low priority list for millions of Americans who are out of work,” the guy speaking wasn’t Obama. I guess you also missed how much the president has tried to do to turn around unemployment with no help–with absolute resistance–from the republicans. It’s so sad to see the kind of stewed, hate-filled garbage that comes from you day after day. One other thing: do you think the Mitt has better plans for the unemployed? How about Boehner? Or McConnell?

    One other thing Jason: I’ll bet everybody you know hates to see you coming and looks for the nearest exit.
