Seeing clearly

As a progressive Christian, I believe there are many names for God and many ways to a loving God; this article reflects one of those ways. Take from here what works for you. Celebrate life with joy and peace! I’m a Midwest boy; I grew up in Madison, Wisc. and when I was a kid […]

The goals of a protest of Capitol Pride

A number of weekends ago this Pride month, a group calling themselves No Justice, No Pride (NJNP) protested the Capitol Pride March in Washington, D.C. It was reported in several sources that they began by opposing the participation of Wells Fargo as a corporate sponsor of the city’s Pride parade, citing Wells Fargo’s involvement in […]

Higher still!

Drumbeat please! Once again, median home prices have climbed to a new high in San Diego. The San Diego Association of Realtors, who track the statistics like baseball fanatics, reported that the May, 2017 median topped the $600,000 mark for the first time in this decade. The 2005 peak of $517,500 when adjusted for inflation […]

The dynamic nature of queerness

Being silent is the furthest impulse from my nature. When I came out, I didn’t open the closet door; I blew it off the hinges. I threw my own personal Pride parade, painting the town red, then orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. Validating my identity by speaking it out loud was the first step; […]

The race for County sheriff is potentially significant

San Diego County races have recently dominated local election chatter. On Tuesday, the Board of Supervisors selected Deputy District Attorney (DA) Summer Stephan to succeed current DA Bonnie Dumanis when she steps down in July. Before Stephan was selected, her 2018 campaign was up and going and speculation about her potential opponents was a political […]

A most salient portrait of evil

When Miguel Arteta and Mike White started filming Beatriz at Dinner last August, I doubt they could have predicted how salient the film would be when it was released ten months later. The biting, mostly comic commentary on class, race and manners is particularly unsettling because Trump won, because what may have been written as […]

‘Spitfire Grill’ serves up a tasty down home dish

There are some musicals that no matter how many times you endure them, no matter how many friends tell you how good they are they just don’t do it for you. The musical version of the film The Spitfire Grill can fall into this category. The 1996 film bombed. The musical of the same name, […]

Meet Sampson McCormick

Award-winning LGBT stand-up comedian, writer and activist Sampson McCormick, black and gay and watching his stock rise, this young man is among a new generation of LGBT activists helping to reshape the comedy landscape. When it comes to inclusion, history will not look kindly on many black comedians. Taking their hyperbolic machismo ethos on stage, […]

A bit of Boston in our backyard

Pete’s Seafood and Sandwiches is an unpretentious diner serving great food in North Park. Owner Peter DeCoste, with 30 years’ experience operating seafood restaurants in Boston, decided it was time to “bring those flavors to San Diego” and opened his casual eatery 18 months ago. Good for us he did. There are two dining areas […]

What happened to Peiping?

Compass points, as in, “Go north and turn west on Elm” are meaningless to me. In Maine things were clearer: “Go straight and turn left where the Nash dealership used to be.” Now car-less, I rely on kind friends to drive me while I sit and look pretty. How we get there is a mystery. […]
