You take Tyrone; I prefer Woody.

So now Senator Craig isn't going to resign in disgrace after all. Why should he? Anybody who's ever flown Northwest knows how tough it can be to make a connection in Minneapolis. But this isn't about him. It's about hep, happenin', progressive Minneapolis, a city that sees itself as a Midwestern oasis of culture. They have the Guthrie. They have a bronze statue of Mary Tyler Moore. And they have plainclothes cops cruising public restrooms to entrap queers. Minneapolis is that kid at a punk show with a clip-on earring and a fake tattoo: lilywhite, uptight, and deeply uncool.

I trust you are not suggesting that clip-on earings are uncool much less deeply uncool? Maybe I'll have to retool my wardrobe. Geez, I don't know if I have the time to spare; I'm still caught in the ultimate penultimate time warp from last month the ultimate penultimate time warp from last month the ultimate penultimate time warp from last month the ultimate penultimate time warp from last month the ultimate penultimate time warp from last month the ultimate penultimate time warp from last month the ultimate penultimate time warp from last month

Xam Nosmas, know that even now our crack 100 word rant cryptography team is hard at work, and expect to have decoded your clever alias within mere months.
