Red Streak: Now With Less Information

Just as Chicagoist was about to give the Red Streak a teensy bit of respect for its coverage yesterday of the Emmett Till case, the Sun-Timess rag has to go get stupid again with todays cover story To Be or Not To Be Outrageously Gay. Yesterdays story was informative, sensitive, relevant, and it presented the Till case in, if not a unique, at least an interesting way. Todays story? Advocates worry that if the media treat gay marriage the same way they treat gay pride paradeswith a focus on the outrageous, such as leather-clad Dykes on Bikes, buttocks-flashing cowboys and drag queensit could make it worse.
