Erin Go Boycott

My Governor and City Council speaker will be boycotting the St. Patrick's Day Parade, because of its ban on allowing gay groups to march in the parade. Said the parade's long-time chairman John Dunleavy last year, "If an Israeli group wants to march in New York, do you allow neo-Nazis into their parade? If African-Americans are marching in Harlem, do they have to let the Ku Klux Klan into their parade?... If we let the Irish Lesbian and Gay Organization in, is it the Irish Prostitute Assocation next?". Really fills me with pride.

So good on you, Eliot and Christine. Ideally, this won't be necessary in the near future.
