Jon, I agree. I'd love it if you could provide links to the articles and comments you discussed...

Sorry to see you go Randy & Mike.

QueerToday has always included a very diverse group of queer identified people who have always offered a diverse array of expression - everything from silly cartoons and anger filled rants to academic essays or news clippings.

Offline QueerToday blogavists have iniated and been involved in many historic protests and campaigns that have brought together wonderful friends and coalitions.

We'll keep on doin' what we do.
