  1. The article on Jon Eastman in the "San Diego Gay and Lesbian News" caught my eye. (I'd still have my apartment in the heart of Hillcrest today and be active there in opposition to NOM, but for this recession.) What a battleground for the issue of Marriage Rights San Diego has become! Eastman was a clerk for Clarence Thomas...and any mention of Thomas always gives me nasty chills.

  2. Nance -- Clarence Thomas gives me the willies too, ever since the Anita Hill controversy.

    As for NOM, I understand former NOM head Maggie Gallagher is taking part in another anti-LGBT project.
