Exile in Holidayville

My travels have kept me Internet-deprived (or -free). This situation will be somewhat ameliorated for the near term.

Greetings from San Francisco, by way of Little Rock and Paris, AR!

Frank Is Right

No doubt about it:
The longest-serving openly gay member of Congress said Sunday it was a mistake for President-elect Barack Obama to invite the Rev. Rick Warren to deliver the invocation at his inauguration.

"Mr. Warren compared same-sex couples to incest. I found that deeply offensive and unfair," Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., said in a broadcast interview.

"If he was inviting the Rev. Warren to participate in a forum and to make a speech, that would be a good thing," Frank said. "But being singled out to give the prayer at the inauguration is a high honor. It has traditionally given as a mark of great respect. And, yes, I think it was wrong to single him out for this mark of respect."


So. Very. Cold

It's 2 below zero? And windy?

And I have to go shovel the walkway...
