One reason I was glad the Olympics were finally over was that it meant I'd never again have to see that insufferable smug bastard boasting about how he never takes a vacation so he can afford some expensive Cadillac crapmobile.
And so, of course, we... Read more

The Globe reports on a deal brokered by Mayor Walsh that will let MassEquality march - as long as they don't wear shirts or carry signs that have the word "gay" on them. No word if they'll be allowed to carry rainbow flags as long as all the stripes but the green one are taped over.
UPDATE: MassEquality says thanks, but no thanks:
The fact that Parade organizers are willing to have a conversation with MassEquality is an important part of ongoing public dialogue about LGBT people and the Parade. But at this point, itâ€™s still just a conversation. MassEquality has not accepted any invitation to march, and will only consider accepting an invitation that allows LGBT people to march openly.
We have heard from LGBT people who are Irish, who are veterans, and many others who would like to march in the Parade and to be able to express all of who they are. LGBT people should not have to silence who they are to celebrate other parts of their identities.
