CHRONICLE BOOKS: From Gay to Z: A Queer Compendium by Justin Elizabeth Sayre is the same book I pitched to St. Martin's Press 25+ years ago as a follow-up to my Encyclopdia Madonnica! I was heavily inspired by all the other sort of round-up culture books — The Unabridged Marilyn, as just one example — but SMP was like meh. Glad to see someone stepped in and did this, and did it with style and with a spirit of inclusiveness. Beautifully produced, too, as are all Chronicle products.

DAILY BEAST: It has taken since 2016 (!), but an appeals court has decided that maybe Texas should not have pushed to imprison Crystal Mason (she's been out on bond) for illegally voting ... with a provisional ballot that was never counted. The illegality of her vote was because she was voting while on supervision over a previous conviction. Do we not hear EVERY DAY about Republicans who INTENTIONALLY double-vote? And where are their prison terms? Meanwhile, Mason still has to pursue having her sentence reconsidered — she isn't home free yet.
