Guns are something
In light of the recent shootings --
the church in Wisconsin, the school in Minnesota, the family of a federal

more important of late: guns.

morning disc jockeys on a radio station in my hometown discussed the representation
of homosexuals in the media. Apparently, they were overwhelmed by the sheer
quantity of gay-related television programs.
