EDITOR: I just wanted to send out a big thank you to City Council member David Nutting for helaping to make the March for Equality such a huge success! His remarks and hilarious defense of them seems to have galvanized not only the gay community but equality-minded straight folk as well. I spoke to bunches of people who were either on the fence about marching or had no plans to attend, but after reading the now-famous "deviant-behaving individuals" description made up their minds to be there.

So, thanks again.
