FEAR AND LOATHING IN PARIS, TENNESSEE
I know it is Prison Friday, but I hope I can be forgiven for running a piece that really isn't appropriate for today. It's just that, well, you will see.
You may have heard about the brutal assault on a gay man in Tennessee recently. Well, it is very unlikely that you have heard the full story. That is what is coming below. I have no capacity to really introduce what is to come except to say that between the police, the incredible homophobic assault, the racism and all that there is, at least, some sign of light shown by the folks who went down to show their solidarity and to record what was going on in some small Tennessee town, AND, by the fact that they found some local people who displayed some humanity and courage themselves.
Overall, it is a dark story indeed, but hidden in that darkness is a glimmer of hope...I hope.
