I don't see an apology for attributing DuBose Heyward's Porgy and Bess lyrics to Ira Gershwin. What gives, Savage?

Nice try, poser, but most of the lyrics in Porgy and Bess were written by DuBose Heyward, author of the novel Porgy, on which the opera is based. The frequent omission of Heyward's name has been a bee in Mr. Sondheim's bonnet for decades. In fact, when the most recent Broadway production of the work - the one for which Audra McDonald won her fifth Tony - was titled The Gershwin' Porgy and Bess, Sondheim criticized the title in a letter to the New York Times, as it undermines Heyward's contribution to the work. It's true that George Gershwin worked with very few lyricists, but that doesn't mean Ira wrote everything.

I can still fantasize about them banging each other, right? Cause it's really, really easy to picture.

Great work, Dom. I've never lived in Seattle (or anywhere outside of the Midwest) and I still read the whole damn thing.

Thank you for writing this. I have bipolar disorder, so... I don't know. Just thank you for writing this.

I'm a little relieved I'm not the only one afraid of suffocating while giving a rimjob.

@32 & @33: Maybe Munchausen's is a form of sociopathy? The narcissism and sadism mentioned in the article are both criteria for diagnosing sociopathy, at least as far as I understand it. And it seems like the people with Munchausens, like sociopaths, also lack empathy - how else could they wreak such havoc with others' lives?

Excellent reporting, Cienna.

Excellent work. And fascinating. I found out in college that I'm bipolar and I decided I needed to quit smoking pot, since I reasoned (somehow) that it was contributing to my ongoing depression, and I was roundly mocked for my decision by my pot-smoking (and closest) friends. Learning now about marijuana's connection to those pre-disposed to a psychotic break (which I've mercifully never experienced), I feel a little vindicated. My logic was flawed, but my instinct was right.

Thought you might like to see what the Tribune is publishing today: http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opini…

It's an editorial titled "Why same-sex marriage is a really bad idea" written by Aaron Fruh, lead pastor at Knollwood Church in Mobile, Ala.

There is nothing new or newsworthy in this editorial (he even trots out the Inevitable Incest! argument), which leads me to believe that the Tribune is running this piece in the name of balance, after its positive profile of Dan. Feh.
