Wil, I think you're awesome, but I think your awesome is being misplaced here. His right to say stupid, hateful, bigoted things was never threatened. Groups he has donated millions of dollars to are taking those dollars and not just saying that gay people should be jailed but going overseas to Uganda and saying gay people should be executed in a country where the political climate makes that a reasonably likely outcome. If you're gay--or even thought by your neighbors to be gay--Uganda isn't safe for you and that is made possible, in part, by money spent on chicken sandwiches. If you buy those chicken sandwiches, you are helping to kill people. You are helping to increase the amount of suffering and decrease the amount of joy in the world. People matter, Wil, and I know you know this. Sometimes when people matter, there are two reasonable sides. Sometimes there aren't. This is one of the times when there aren't They're bigots and the fact that they don't like being called bigots is why we need to keep pointing out to them that it's what they are being.

I think I've seen a few of these posts where you miss the people you work with on a show and it always seems like it's a high school graduation. You like these people and you want to spend a lot of time with them but you know your life is going to make that really really hard to do. Which led me to a question. Have you ever thought about doing a yearbook kind of thing for a show? Take a camera, perhaps a bunch of video and record as much history as you can and put it all together when the show's over. Does anyone do that kind of thing?

Theo is a good GM and I think you're going to be pleased with the results--those of us in Boston certainly were--but it is going to be a long journey.

Both you and John Scalzi have said that Macs made it easy to be the creative people you both are. I think Jobs would be enormously proud of that. Making it easy to be awesome is pretty much what Macs have always been about.

Would it be rude of me to point out that it's not Jacob Ellsbury, it's Jacoby?

See, in Boston we most certainly do wish that kind of injury on people....if they're Yankees. Also, losing Nick Punto can only help the Cards.
