Oh hey Pride is coming up this weekend! We nearly forgot. It feels kind of redundant to talk about gay pride in SF sometimes. So, readers, got any big plans? Looking forward to visiting any particular booths? Putting together (or taking apart) any showy costumes? How do you feel about the controversial decision to name Tom Cruise and John Travolta as Grand Marshalbuddies?

We, of course, plan to celebrate gay pride the only way we know how: by staying at home, far from the Castro, reading a book about hegemony and waiting for News Hour reruns to start, then maybe making some mac and cheese or something. Surely you've got better tips than we do for enjoying the annual demonstration of homosexuals' obvious superiority -- please share!
