Justine, sometime commenter to this blog sent a link to a commentary on a gay-bashing incident in her neighborhood in N.Y. and the resulting protests. How long does this crap have to go on? A couple of years ago a gay friend had the hell beat out of him in a bar, not because he was bothering anyone, it was just because of his sexual orientation. This didn't happen in some strange faraway place like New York or Wyoming or California. It happened in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Listen, you ignorant redneck S.O.B.s, this is my final warning, I'm not going to put up with this shit any longer.
