Campbell Spears Spear Again

For the historical record, Lavender might like to note that Senator Allan Spear’s 1974 coming out was not seen by many leading Minnesota gays at the time as particularly “courageous.” Spear came out only under strong threat of “outing.” It is probably even true that so many people in public life already knew he was gay by the time he came out, his interview with the local newspaper was pretty anticlimactic.

I’ve broken baguette with Rose McGee of Deep Root Desserts; stopped for a quick lunch on the terrace with my partner, Chad, after a bicycle ride; and shared wine and supper with my PR person, Maria Manske.

Giving Them The Bird

Home & Yard Blvd. Section

It’s High Noon on Thanksgiving, and the house is a disaster. Instead of finely crafted silverware, plastic forks and spoons lie strewn about the kitchen table. Instead of an elegant arrangement of soothing, fall-colored decorations, a plastic cornucopia and a freshly printed “Happy Thanksgiving” sign awkwardly greet guests at the front door.
