Jerry Falwell

Mr. Falwell died today. I'm not crying a lot of tears. I remember back in 1983. I was in bed on a Sunday morning with my boyfriend. We had just had some wild, hot, homosexual sex. In a post-sex fog, I grabbed the remote and channel surfed, running into Falwell's Old Time Gospel Hour. The Reverend was at the pulpit, fulminating about homosexuality, saying "The Moral Majority is saving America from a homosexual menace. We are like the Dutch Boy with his finger in the dike." We nearly fell off the bed laughing. I can't think of a more appropriate metaphor.
