    Bye-bye to Jerry Falwell

    Posted by: Chris

    Story1 Two days of packing up my condo in Washington have left me with little time to post, which has been especially tough given the news yesterday that Jerry Falwell died. 

    The first thing that came to mind was something the first-ever female president of my college alumni association once told me.  Talking about the notoriously slow pace of progress on our alma mater's board of trustees, she said, "What we need for some real change is a few good funerals."  Indeed.

    As for me, tonight brings a flight back to Rio, which actually feels like going "home" after living there since September with my partner.  But this time is different; I'll finally be working "without a net" — no apartment back in Washington.  Wish me luck...!

    As I climb on board "the new Delta," take a few minutes to enjoy a fitting bye-bye to Jerry from Tinky Winky, who the televangelist infamously outed back in 1999.

      He died of heart failure, I would suggest that his heart failed a long time ago.

      Good luck without the "safety net"! Here's to the day when your partner can move to the US as your spouse.

      My Fridays will never be the same! Can't you write from Rio?

      Well ain't you sweet! ;)
      I'll still be writing and blogging. I've been doing it in both D.C. and Rio up until now, and I intend to going forward. It's just that now I don't have an apartment or car in Washington and all my things are in storage so, psychologically more than anything, I've officially "moved."
