A statistically improbable polymath's views on politics and culture.

We thought it would be Massachusetts
The state of New Jersey now has an openly gay governor--and contrary to Messieurs Falwell et Robertson, Trenton has not been destroyed by the wrath of God.

All I have to say is to echo Wonkette:

"This was the speech of the year. The most high profile outing, well, ever, and McGreevey handled it with grace and dignity. He sort of makes me want to go gay, too.

We hope that someday it won't mean much to go on national television and announce, "I am a gay American." Someday, we hope that kind of announcement comes at the beginning of someone's political career, not the end."

Who knows--maybe the people of New Jersey will respond similarly and encourage him to serve out the rest of his term.
