As for the alcohol analogy everyone seems so keen on making, what she recommends is what alcohol already does. Dosages should be clearly marked like liquor so you can consume accordingly.

Also (I think) important to note is how much overlap there is between Walsh voters and those opposing gay groups marching. That this is a Dot guy gives it a lot more weight to the bigots I'd imagine.

@6: What was that expression supposed to mean? I'm a sex-having funeral home employee and I couldn't follow it.

What does one do when one loathes the actions of one;s government, but knows said action are the wa it shall be, from here to eternity?

@37 raises a solid point. Change in the Democratic Party is possible on the local level,usually more so in non-election years. Sick of the Dems not reflecting the progressive component of their coalition? After the election become involved in the party and push that way. It may be more work than a 3rd party vote, but it moves things in a better direction.

@19, I may be over defending my city here, and I don't have the time to research where this guy is really from, but I'd like to think not Boston. Little Italy isn't actually a neighborhood (unless he means the North End, but no one calls it anything other than the North End).

See #2. Not exactly your question, but the right response.

@37 & @44: I may just be being over-charitable, but I feel like the "it just happened" is more of the mutual mistake than excessively aggressive sort, but that is just from the details (or lack) given. Benefit of the doubt (on matters not directly discussed) to the person not involved in the conversation and all that.

In terms of the guy's rights, as a man I always considered my opinion to be like that of a minority party without veto power. I do not have power to make the call, but I have rights to an opinion and to express that, letting it be considered.
