so it's memorial day
i like to stick around during "get away" weekends and split when everyone's here
the "us and them" way of life is easy to fall into
get a job that employs you at night
stop washing your hair every day.."us"
don't go to college right after high-school
or do as i did..wait 12 years and then put yourself thru
don't just agree with the pack because it's the republican thing to do
pick your friends based on who makes your mind think
fall in love
i've always been an "US"
but much of it was of my own doing
it was I would say rather "US" like to skip cooking school
being an "US" has its draw backs
you'll probably never truly understand things
but if my life depended on it
to be an "US" all you really have to do
no, no no

Can I just take a moment here to say congratulations to Massachusetts !!!!
On this great day, May 17, 2004 same sex couples are, as I write this, getting legally married in this brave state.
That is has happened in my beloved Provincetown makes me all the more proud.
I think today of the hundreds of couples on line at town hall, couples who come from rural areas where to hold their lover’s hand might mean the loss of their job, their safety, their family perhaps their very life.
To say “I do” after a lifetime of hiding, or wishing, or praying.
In this little town that swells into a big town in the summer, my good pal in town counted representatives of 60 forms of major media.
There are cameras everywhere.
The town that so few non-gay people outside of the north-east had heard of is now on the cover of newspapers all around the country, all around the world.
In a town, that cries either for the loss of our soldiers or for the fact that we are at war, or both, this is a bitter-sweet time for such a victory.
But I am reminded of the era of those brave women in the early part of the last century who were beaten, jailed, abused and almost stamped out for daring to fight for the right of women in this country to vote in the time of a world war.
They were told their fight for equality was in bad taste.
One must never criticize the president in a time of war and they responded, we are American, we love our country, we cry for our lost soldiers, but do not seek to keep us quiet, to silence our voices and our human rights in the name of supporting our president.
We ask instead for our president to stand behind us, as Americans as equal members of humanity.
And here today..I say in this time of terror, war, sadness and inhumanity against humanity..let us just celebrate this one little victory for human rights..let us just rejoice for the love that for this day

I'm feeling freaked out today
Here we are. It's the year 2004. I grew up thinking that atrocities like Hitler and the murder of six million Jews, like the Spanish Inquisition and the expulsion and or murder of hundreds of thousands of Jews, like the friggen Pharaoh back in Egypt and the slavery of the Hebrews..could not happen again.
But I don't feel that way anymore.
It's so strange to me that in this day and age, anyone could hate anyone else for being Jewish. This is a religion that encircles a group of people as different and diverse from each other as is the human race. Show me a Jew with a big nose, I'll show you ten with perfect little Gwyneth Paltrow noses. Show me a cheap Jew, I'll show you ten who are generous to a flaw, myself included. Show me a dis-honest Jew, I'll point you to entire communities based on pride, honor and goodness. Show me dark haired Sephardic Jew, I'll point to my grandfather, my mother and myself and our blonde hair and blue/green eyes. Show me a Jew how believes that Israel should not exist at this time and I'll point you to millions of Jews who will fight for its existence with their lives. Show me a Jew who believes in the oppression of all Palestinian people and I'll point you to millions who dedicate their lives to fighting for the human rights of all people.
It seems to me that to hate a Jew, to kill a Jew, because they are Jewish, makes as much sense as thinking millions of Catholics are all the same.
Can you walk out today and think that every Catholic you meet will be of the same species, same ideals, same thoughts as every other Catholic?
Of course not.
and....of course....even ....if by some freak of the universe...every Jew on this planet had the same dreams, the same beliefs, the same ethnicity, the same desires, the same needs....it would still be a crime against humanity to murder them to seek to destroy them in the name of what?
A holy war?
Are you African American?
So stop the spread of Anti-Semitism... speak out when you hear a "dirty Jew" joke.. Speak out. Reach out. Call out. Don't be quiet.
Because the next time some group of people or peoples tries to create genocide you may very well be their target.
I am so sad today..for this world.
Recently I found an old letter written by my mother 10 years before she died.
She wrote, "Has mankind learned nothing?"

It was great really darlings, because the town’s commercial businesses have really been hurting these last few years..while big money folks hiked up the prices for rent in town and the year-rounders were pushed out to the dunes or to the next town over Truro which has now become almost as pricey as Ptown sorta like what Manhattan did to Brooklyn.
But I digress…
High rents…loud drunken yahoos aside..Provincetown has always been a town that marches to the beat of its own drum…or flute..whistle..
Hell they’ve even had a dancing traffic cop who does a spin and something I might call a shimmy when he tells cars to go.
So it’s fitting with its history of tolerance and a supremely high percentage of gay tourists and year-rounders, that P-town should become marriage central in this whole gay marriage thing.
Honey..everyone’s getting in on it.
Used to be when I strolled into town and told folks I was a wedding caterer..they looked at me like I said…oh you know I’m a rocket scientist..
This time around the answer is oh so is so and so and so and so and her and him and my dog…and yeah my cat plans weddings.
Art galleries are turning themselves into reception venues.
Forget it honey.
Still money and mishegash aside..It’s great really that this strange little town on the tip of a long cape…has become a beacon for the nuptials that dare not say their name.
I was proud to hear that the board of selectman (who include babes by the way don’t let the name fool ya) voted unanimously in favor of issuing marriage licenses to out-of-state same-sex couples when gay marriage becomes legal in the state next week, putting them in direct conflict with super yahoo...Republican Gov. Mitt Romney.
Yeah…there’s a little bitty state law dating back to 1913…you know when dinosaurs ruled the earth, that says couples cannot be married in Massachusetts if their marriage would not be valid in the state they live in.
Now just to show you what a big pile of crap this whole racist, homophobic, anti-Semitic BLECH is. That particular law was meant to keep interracial couples from getting hitched when it was still illegal in their home states.
Nope…no whities and darkies getting hitched in Mass. If it wasn’t okay in redneckville.
So Romney who’s probably someone George Bush Junya would love, love, love, has dug up this ol law and is trying to slow down the gay marriage performed by town clerks across Massachusetts by forcing them to make the intended couples show proof that they live in the state.
But clerks in Ptown (YAY CLERKS) have been once again marching to their own drum and have stated they either will not ask for proof of residency or they’re gonna be rreallllllly loosey goosey about it.
Knowing Ptown as well as I do, the conversation might go something like this, “We wanna get married.”
“Do you live or are you planning on moving in state?”
“Well do you like it here?”
“Might you consider moving here one day?”
"But you're not...dead set against it?"
“Good enough for us!”
Course Rotten Romney is already threatening to press charges against the clerks if they don’t listen to big brother. But honeys’ that kinda press would be fun, fun, fun to watch.
A whole group of clerks hauled off to jail for letting some lovebirds get married. Cover of Time here we come!
Anyway…this all should prove to be pretty damn interesting and I’m truly bummed that I will not be in Ptown the week of May 17th to watch it all unfold.
Ah the drama I shall miss.
Now then…do any babes out there wanna marry me in late May…I wanna be a part of this so bad!
