J'accuse! I hereby charge the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) with anti-gay behavior.

Ummm... again.

I had a whole rant written, then realized that I did it so much better one year ago. Go read the list of GLAAD Media Award nominees -- Dr. Phil? WTF? -- then read last year's tirade.

Yes, once again the closest GLAAD comes to touching on literature is the Comic Book category, and while I agree that strip where Dagwood and Herb went fishing up at Brokeback was powerful, the men and women idiots at GLAAD really owe it to their constituents and credibility to aim a little higher.

Remember, GLAAD: books help form opinions, challenge orthodoxy, and change lives, too. And maybe if you folks read one some day, you'd realize that.
