Could have done without the "it seems we've reached the end of the gayest little city council meeting in Jacksonville" concluding line. 296 is really important, and to end on a borderline offensive punchline, I don't know MJ. It comes across as slightly belittling. That and "the homosexuals are out in full force" lines kind of give the piece an odd feel, like us straight folk are observing bizarre, otherworldly animals from a distance at the zoo. Minor criticism, I know, but I really wanted to like this, and it just sat kind of funny with me.
That aside, MJ's continuing coverage of this issue has been pretty damn spectacular otherwise.
Keep it up!
