Reference was made in a previous post to the awful things the media are running to upset and nauseate us but at least they take our minds off other worries for the nonce. They might be said to be cathartic, except …
There are two things I saw last evening which cannot be unseen but first a quote from a reader at N.O. on the gay cake matter.
