Back from New York City

Last Sunday I finally returned from a week-long vacation in New York City. Over the next few days, I'll post my diary of the trip, but for now, here's a quick rundown.

Six shows: Light in the Piazza, the Broadway revival of Glengarry Glen Ross, Orson's Shadow, Avenue Q, an evening of Gertrude Stein operas, and Doubt.

Four art museums: Guggenheim, MoMA, the American Folk Art Museum, and the Metropolitan Museum.

Lots of touristy stuff: Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum, CNN and NBC studio tours, the "Today" show.

And of course, walking tours of various Manhattan neighborhoods.

Stay tuned, gentle readers ...

Gay Pride Days

You didn't think I was going to let Gay Pride season pass without reposting "Gay Pride Days"? The only thing that has changed since I wrote this piece (back in 2003) is that the Supreme Court ruling Lawrence v. Texas has made sodomy laws unenforceable -- although they're still on the books in many states, and the religious right has openly stated that they want to bring these laws back in force.

Since Jon Rowe has made a specialty of debunking religious conservatism, I'll leave the legal arguments to him. Enjoy.

(New posts are coming soon.)
