Crime Watch Daily: Surprise, surprise, Mercedes Williamson's alleged murderer is claiming he did not know she was trans, the implication being that trans people deserve to be murdered because there is nothing worse that finding a penis where you don't expect it. (And the comments on the recent Queerty article about Willam's gross anti-trans comments should be all the proof you need that gay men are not very open-minded on this topic.)

Kenneth in the (212): I loved the return of Will & Grace. It felt like a return to form for a series that ended on a sour note, the cast looked great, the timing was impeccable and I actually felt the political stuff was deftly done in a Norman Lear/Maude vein, in that while they were zapping Trump, they were also poking fun at their own hypocrisies. Kenneth seems to have liked it, and it was a big ratings-grabber. I hope gay people who don't like its tone will back off on trashing it as if it's the enemy — it's not. It's Howard Hawks in 2017 (as it was Howard Hawks in the '90s back in the '90s), or Moonlighting, so if that style isn't your cup of tea, no shade needed.
