annoys the hell out of me that this lying scheming crackhead sits on the city council here.

as soon as ward 8 looks as lily white as the rest of DC is turning then finally the residents there will wake up.

Not sure that the "lying scheming crackhead" remark was warranted, however Barry's support should come as no surprise to anyone. He was the first to campaign for office in DC gay bars back in the day--- showing up at the "Clubhouse" and the Mill and rubbing shoulders with Black gays and asking for thier votes.

Barry has always been supportive.

we are all entitled to our opinions and the right to voice them.

but his most recent attempted lawsuit against Metro (which he sits on the board but has been to less than 10% of the meetings) is just one example of this public servent at work

He's a Pisces like me...we're expected to take drugs. Barry used to have a fierce body back in the 70s. All black men had fierce bodies back then.

C. BAPTISTE I don't entirely agree with your POV on Marion Barry. If he turned his life around and is pushing gay rights and marriage, more power to him, we need all the allies we can get. And, fwiw, it's kind of self defeating to scream 'drug user' to a crowd of gay men.

One more thing. I don't really know local DC politics and you have made several comments on this blog that took issue with my reporting. If you or any other black gay bloggers in DC or ATL want to report/analyze local news/stories/etc, I'm more than happy to link and/or quote you, it's less work for me, and, you know the issues far better than me.
