Re: “Awesome Books Sold

Mr. O'Driscoll,

Please pardon the pedantry (and alliteration), but you referred to the new owner's "fiance." Who you then referred to by the feminine pronoun "she." That left me slightly confused about the gender of the affianced. I would presume the form you want (to match the pronoun) is fiancee.

Re: “Dragged into Debate: Reality-TV fame puts spotlight on Sharon Needles' controversial act

I find it extremely interesting that local government is supporting and recognizing a drag queen, while the local "alt" paper and Pride celebrations have turned their backs. I would suggest that Ms. Daley actually go see a performance of Ms. Needles' show for herself, but that will be rather difficult as Sharon is performing in pretty much every other US city but Pittsburgh these days.

Fairly disgusted with CP's "reporting" on this issue. More responsible use of your media outlet would have been reporting on the bullying that Mr. Coady/Ms. Needles has experienced, or outside the Needles story altogether, talking about some of the *truly* hateful things that could be heard outside of the Pride in the Street event, or on the corner before/during PrideFest.

Perhaps it is a sign of the times. Your next cover should read: "Shock" drag queen mainstream enough for city government, too mainstream for "alternative" press.
