It's been awhile since I donned this guise

Once in great while, I just have to take a break. Though in reality that isn't what happens. I still read the papers, LA and NY Times, and of course, I'm in book stores all the time so I can't miss the new books. So when I say take a break, I just mean I'm not going to go public with my thoughts for a bit. But now I'm back and the first thing I want to write about is the big deal over Paris Hilton and the gay rights parade. Ironic isn't it? Paris apparently isn't moral enough for the gay community. Hmmm? Don't the neocon and christian right think of gays as immoral? What's going on? Is there another level of morality that we're just learning about, some astral plane of morality that maybe was best explained in that thrilling little short story by T. Sturgeon, If All Men Were Brothers, Would You Let Your Sister Marry One? Or is this just more PR like the Katie Holmes kidnapping?
