Our hottie seems lost in reflection. As everyone seemed to be on our train this morning. It was an eerily silent commute.
We all awoke to stunning news this morning. There will be plenty of blame to go around. But right now, just as our hottie is reflecting so is our HOTT Crew.
We know as gay men that to achieve our civil rights we had to engage people by telling our personal stories. By explaining to others how their votes would impact us personally. We must not stop doing that. And while we do that we must also coach our straight allies on how to do that because they have almost as much personally at risk now as we do.
As we watched the network news coverage at 4am this morning we couldn't help but notice that the transformation of Network News into Network News Entertainment has not served America well. True journalism and reporting is nearing extinction in our country. That is not a good thing.
And those national polls! We were stunned that our own survey of the nation (posted Saturday) that reviewed how we saw the contest as of Friday evening was far more accurate than any national poll.
We're going to stop our reflecting for the moment because if we keep going it just gets worse.
So let's take some time to thank those whose votes were influenced by our own personal needs. And then go eat some donuts or burritos or something. You deserve it.
