  •  But that's so far from SF (1+ / 0-)

    especially culturally. And the reason a lot of these folks are well known is because of the national organization. And there are a number of LGTB servicemembers who are supportive of having Manning be the GM. That's what really gets me about this, that SF Pride would be so idiotic as to not only say Manning wasn't going to be a GM, after they said Manning would be after they said Manning wouldn't after they said Manning would be, but that they would completely vilify Manning in the process. That's why this stinks of out of towners and corporate sponsors. Simply not choosing Manning or vetting the choices would have been different, although I'd still be a bit disappointed if I found out Manning was in the running and got nixed by military folks.

    Nor do I agree you have to be a "conservative" to think that Bradley is an inappropriate choice for Grand Marshall.
    I didn't mean to imply that but I can see where you got it from. San Diego is a far, far more conservative town than SF, as I'm sure you know.

    If debt were a moral issue then, lacking morals, corporations could never be in debt.
