Re: “Musing over Miss Arkansas

A few months back, I wrote a story about veterans with substance abuse issues that needed some help. I expected the vets to receive supportive comments, but there wasn't much activity. I guess all the good people of the world were conserving their energies to defend the truly disenfranchised...

Re: “Musing over Miss Arkansas

I just gotta ask some of you folks commenting, did you read this piece? Because if so, a lot of y'all sound pretty silly. It's a mix of compliments (scholarship and opportunities for exposure, interview that counts for a lot, pretty face with interesting features, cool talent, lovely dress) and not especially cutting or novel digs (swimsuit competition is lame, bad haircut, tired Broadway songs). It's a personal essay based on an experience (as an observer, not an insider), so yes, it has an editorial tone. This is not a PR piece, nor is it a "take-down" of pageants. But if anyone wanted a reason to think pageant folks are ridiculous, these comments suffice.

Re: “Big Orange goes gluten free

According to Beachboard, there are no dedicated fryers for gluten-free items. Usually fries are made in a dedicated fryer, but when Big Orange is busy, the fries fryer may also be used for items that contain gluten.

Re: “Chad Griffin speaks about marriage equality and bullying at The Clinton School

You're right, HRC is D.C.-based. Chad Griffin is L.A.-based.
