Well, that was dumb. 
But if somehow even a guy like Carson has that kind of tired-ass weak-florist horseshit bouncing around his head, it might not be entirely unrelated to the fact that the gay press and GLAAD has given him more ink for 20 seconds of being a jackass than they’ve given me for 15 years of being an out gay man on TV.
And it’s not just me: there are tons- tons!- of out gay men and women doing great work in comedy clubs (James Adomian! Chip Pope!) and rock venues (Kill The Complex! Boheme! BEN FUCKING WISE!) and on the internet (I don’t even know where to start). 
So, gay media and GLAAD: how’s about instead of trying to turn his volume down, you use your power and reach to help us crank ours up? 
(PS: Worked with the guy for years. Not a homophobe. Just a knucklehead sometimes, like you and me.)

United Flight 93, in voicemail form: The San Jose Mercury News got a hold of the voicemails to United Airlines Flight 93 passenger Mark Bingham. All sorts of people were trying to get a hold of Mark that day, who many now believe was one of the people who attempted to reclaim the plane from the hijackers. The voicemails start with “are you OK”-type messages, then notes of concern, then — after folks heard of his death — regret, remorse and appreciation for what he did. (A notable exception is his own mother, a former flight attendant with United, who tells him in her voicemail to fight back in an effort to save lives.) You’ll want to click this one and read closely. And, after you’re done, read the story that goes with it. We’d say this is the best newspaper page you’ll read about September 11, but that really gives all the other ones short shrift. There are many, many well-designed pages today. Charles Apple has a roundup.
EDIT: We’ve noticed a few cases where people have linked directly to the image on Twitter. We only posted it to our own host to save bandwidth for Charles Apple, and would ask that you not link directly to the image.
