Seems like they must have interviewed Mark.

That is an extremely balanced and non-judgmental article, in my view.

Good to see.

I've read that before, so it was cribbed from a wire service somewhere. It's a good article, though, and hits all the high notes. (Not sorry one bit about the pun!)

It's a truism in journalism that any headline which asks a yes or no question almost always has "no" as the answer.

I so want to believe it will happen any day now, but there is so much negative perception among the unwashed (m)asses against men doing or wearing anything the slightest bit feminine (which in said unwashed masses' collective minds includes any type of skirt) that I'm not holding my breath in anticipation.
