  • Frequent commentor (mostly queerty.com links, weirdly) and my #1 weekend hag, LA is a resident of Baldwin City, KS, and while I’m constantly trying to get her to relocate out of that backwards backwoods hillbilly hole in the road vibrant small town full of heartwarming American values for life in the crime-ridden and poorly governed glorious urban paradise of KC, I realize that the small-town life offers some very appealing amenities. Housing’s cheaper for one thing, and the public school’s are decent (and might remain that way if residents of Baldwin can see their way to passing the school bond ballot issue this November) and the Maple Leaf Festival is awesome in every regard (especially that homemade gordita guy).

  • I may well be dodging sniper fire on my way into the Tina Turner concert tomorrow night. Wish me luck!

You may still send your complaints by stagecoach or standing outside your door and screaming up the street. Don’t forget to finish with ‘pass it on!’
