A couple different people linked to Mark Evanier's Tony post. Lots of good stuff (including what was going on with Chita Rivera's voice cutting out), but what struck me hardest was this bit: "once you've made the (correct) decision that you have to leave in the shots of men and women kissing their same-sex mates, are you really going to offend anyone by allowing the word, 'ass?'"

What's saddest about the observation is the fact that it's true. The hegemonic tyrants "watchdog" groups that spearhead phone ins and letter writing campaigns and boycotts are just as (if not more) likely to object to seeing a congratulatory kiss from a same-sex partner as they are to hearing a heterosexual character singing about getting oral sex in an SUV.

It's vaguely depressing to realize there are people out there that honestly believe monogamous homosexuality is somehow more lurid than heterosexual orgy. Also: rather pathetic.
