Apologies for the lack of activity here (though, ahem, your comments are always welcome--activity can be a two-way street here). I'm backed up with assignments, cranking out the last two chapters of a trade paperback.
For the moment all I can offer is this low-blow bon mot from Leslie Jordan's LIKE A DOG ON LINOLEUM at the Elephant Asylum in Hollywood:
"Dr. Laura called homosexuals 'genetic mistakes.' She looks like an albino monkey in a wig. She could back a pack of dogs off a meat truck."
Oh, and speaking of Southern sissies, how about that election?
