Have not heard from the MLK Center. This doesn't surprise me, but I am a little disappointed. For all of that, I will NOT be hosting a kegger on MLK's grave, even if such actions are acceptable to the National Park Service and the MLK Center.

I'm tellin' ya, the Harvey Milk High School for Homosexuals is a bad idea. It's going to have, what, 100 students? In NY? Perfect. So here are some things will happen: (a) the children who attend will be known as the homos who think they're too good to associate with the rest of us mere mortals, (b) the small size of the school, the special attention it will receive as a 'test' school, and in particular the attention of the financially well-off gay community (2nd richest demographic group in the US) will all combine to ensure that it's a pretty good school, so there will be some good hetero students claiming to be gay in order to attend, (c) 12/13/14 year olds will be forced to decide and declare their sexual preferences, at a time in their lives when they should be celibate and not having to deal with such things. Sure, I know a lot of them are/will anyway, but they should not be forced into by adults.
