    "I was decrying the corporatization of GLBT Pride 20+ years ago. It's a damn shame that movement didn't stick to its radical roots. The people who have been running things for decades would not have given the time of day to those who risked their lives in the early days, and set off the actions at Stonewall. And they certainly don't assist the contemporary equivalents, rather oppose them every step of the way, unless they can find a way to make money or fame out of it. If Bradley Manning ever gets out of prison, and has a radio show or otherwise has some platform of power, you can bet the likes of Lisa L. Williams will be kissing his butt."

    Oklahoma: birthplace of Kate Barnard, W. Rogers, W. Guthrie, Bill Moyers & Eliz. Warren. Home to proud progressive agitators since before statehood. Current political climate a mere passing dust cloud; we're waiting it out & planning for clearer days.
