Macy’s erases gay people from store window display after hate group complains

atta boy, macy’s. there’s nothing like literally erasing people, from a gay pride display no less, to really appeal to the inner-nazi in all of us. what a bunch of pigs.

in presenting you the information i have pulled together, i am toying with a new form—inventing it, actually. maybe reinventing it. a “suite” of juxtaposed interrelating interacting posts on a single event or topic. you should feel free to wander through all the articles and links. bookmark the page and come back to it for further reading, if you want. gives you the opportunity to be thoughtful about it.

am interested in what you think of it. don’t have any poetry to put with it today. yet.

    Hello there Aids-Write bloggers!

    Thought you might be interested to read the letter to In Newsweekly from the national chairman of Macy’s in regard to the whole Pride issue…whether you believe it or not!

    You can read it here:

    http://www.innewsweekly.com/innews/?class_code=Op&article_code=2091

    (There’s also some coverage of the Macy’s story in other sections of the paper, but I thought you’d find this of the most interest.)
