Sorry 1-6, but I empathize with IA on this one. I was at a concert once by my favorite performer, who I don't get to see often, and there was a crowd of left-over happy-hour drinkers standing directly behind me, talking load enough to ruin the show for me for several minutes. I would have moved, but the place was packed and there was no place to go. These drunks clearly had no interest in seeing the show. It did end happily, however, when I politely asked them to keep it down and they not only apologized, they actually stopped talking for the balance of the show.

I think that this week's IA needs to sit down with her/his friend Magic Pussy and have a heart to heart talk over some MALT LIQUOR and COCAINE.

The people here who know nothing about alcoholism make me laugh. It's a disease and the main symptom is denial. On the average, most drunks don't realize they have a problem until way into their lives and many never get help. When they do, they are often in their 40's or 50's and believe me, they suffer for their past wrongs. I'm in my 24th year of sobriety and I can't tell you how many times I wished I'd stop drinking years before I did. As a gay man, I never had children, but I know tons of drunks who did. It's always hard but it's never too late. And I've seen a lot (and I mean a LOT) of people who didn't make it and died of alcoholism or an overdose, often before they reached thirty. Nasty disease, but you cannot help someone who doesn't want to stop.

Staring at a stranger for any reason is not cool.

"Two six packs..." is how I heard this one.

Helvetica Bold is very cute. Some of the funniest drag names I've heard have had me in stitches.

I was very proud of a drag name in thought up for a Puerto Rican friend of mine -- "Bessie Mae Koolo".

When I was 14, I had a best friend who was also gay. But we were NOT having sex -- we were "sisters". This is the most likely explanation that I can think of, but no one else here has seemed to have thought of it (I read most but not all of the posts). If this is the case, they're probably comparing notes on the cutest boys in school or guys in the neighborhood -- all perfectly harmless.

As Dan Savage would say: "Dump the motherfucker already."

@ #14 - I am sure that Dan has said more than once that he often takes the trouble to clean up spelling, grammar etc. And if I were writing such a column, I would probably completely rewrite half the letters I publish, based on the fact that so many people SUCK when it comes to writing composition.

Just sayin'

@25 AA saved my ass 23 years ago and I haven't been high since I walked in the door. I could not stop on my own. My life has improved 1,000% over where I was back then, and I wouldn't go back to that life for anything. I continue to go to AA mostly to help newer people and show them how I stopped drinking, and I have seen many success stories. The only thing I know about "Rational Recovery" is that their agenda seems to be all about destroying AA, and then getting people sober. If that works for anyone, it's fine with me. AA's stated primary pupose is to help alcoholics achieve sobriety. Nobody forces anyone to stay and nobody chases those who choose to leave. I have known many, many people in AA who decided it wasn't for them, left the program and I later found out that they had overdosed or killed themselves. Some of those former AA'ers were very young. I am sure I would have been dead years ago without AA. By the way, I am a devout atheist and I have never had a problem reconciling my "beliefs" with the program.
