Just had a great lunch with the legendary LGBT rights warrior David Mixner. What a fascinating man. Even if he wasn't from the Appalachian story-teller tradition, the content of his stories is so compelling it would be hard to turn a deaf ear. He's as smart and funny as you'd expect and is a joyful perv—so we got along like a house afire, chatting about the 2012 Republican contenders, Rock Hudson, The Real Housewives of New York and Africa. I can't wait to see his Dixon Place show on the 18th.
