    Logan's uncle (my long time roommate), Geoff McGrath, just got the boot from The BSA, for being openly gay, despite a long list of credentials, and decades of association with the BSA. Last year, we were the 11'th highest rated gay story in The Huffington Post. This year, we'd like the BSA (a publicly chartered organization) to knock off their institutional bigotry, shunning, and hatred.

    We CAN do this, as more and more folks step forward and say "I'm gay, and it's o.k."

    If anyone here is a civil rights attorney, this would likely be a very good case to test, and, to embarrass the BSA into getting onto the RIGHT side of history.

    We've had GREAT, OUTSTANDING support from the folks at Gannett Group, and NBC, as well as folks like Disney.

    No young man, nor mature man, should be shunned over his sexuality. IT IS WRONG.

    I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully some good news will come from this.

    By the way, how is Logan? Haven't seem him in a long time.
