Recently Overheard (Or, Is That Really Nice To Say?)Apr 08, 2008
(Because of a technical malfunction that crashed this site on April 4, and took down every post and comment after March 14, the following has been re-posted. It was originally written March 19, 2008.) Recently, a Family Foundation intern was in Joe's Inn, an institution in the heart of Richmond's hip and historic Fan District.
Enjoying her meal, her ears perked up when she happened to hear two men speaking at a nearby table. One said to the other:
"I want to organize a gay pride parade here, but that damn Victoria Cobb will show up with her cronies."
Now, now!Didn't your mom teach you to "Think it, but don't say it"? But thou doest protesteth mucheth too mucheth. Actually, we probably wouldn't do anything of the such, but thanks for the cred. If what you think of us keeps the streets open for smooth flowing traffic, then maybe we've added to our accomplishments. Talk about unintended consequences.
