IC Blog Gets Mention in Village Voice

It has come to my attention the IC Blog got a mention in one of the blogs featured in The Village Voice.

Some fellow named Roy Edroso objected to my commentary on the Oscars last night. I took Sean Penn to task for lambasting those who voted for Proposition 8 after he won the Best Actor statue. But Penn has no way of knowing if Harvey Milk would have voted against Prop 8. No one does. After all, there were those in the gay community that did not support his opposition to Proposition 6 in 1978. The gay community did not embrace gay marriage overnight. It is quite possible had Milk lived he might have resisted gay marriage in the same way as those at The Advocate resisted Milk and opposition to Prop 6. Or perhaps not. Either way we cannot assume definitively and must consider all possibilities.

But naturally Edroso misses the point and sarcastically states it's possible Milk could "have turned straight or become a Klansmen."(http://blogs.villagevoice.com/runninscared/archives/2009/02/oscar_night_rig.php)

Oh well. Better a bad word than no word at all.
