Editor’s Scratchpad

Stop protesting,
start surfing

As for me, I'm not in favor of being gay. I don't think I'd like it. I enjoy the opposite sex too much. Same-sex sex seems like a great deal of exercise for too little result. But that's just me. I'm not wired that way.

As for the rest of the world's citizens, I don't care. What they do between the sheets is up to them. If they're gay, well, that's their thing. Not mine.

This is most likely why I have trouble understanding the mean-spirited ayatollahs from Topeka, Kan., who have flown to Hawaii on a "God Hates Fags" whistlestop. If I were in Topeka in January, and then suddenly in Hawaii, I would sure think of better things do than stand on a street corner and proclaim to the world what a moron I am. These people are wasting their time here on Earth.

They should hit the beach. Hear some tunes. See the sights. Buy a colorful shirt. Get a tan. Have a drink garnished with a paper umbrella. Stop living in fear of other people's genitals.

Life is difficult enough without devoting yourself to hatred and fear. Who has time for this?
