Just made my first visit to Police HQ. They have a silly little machine to gain entrance and not-so-loveable curmudgeon at the gate. He started the hell out of me by looming over while I was waiting for someone — anyone — to answer my button pushing. Not a good start. I almost dropped by Blackberry and that would have been a problem.
But the permit for the Dyke March is notarized and submitted. The route has been changed to Bloomfield which is very appropriate as a response to the recent gay bashings. I've spoken with Mayor Ravenstahl's team so I anticipate little problem getting things formalized. Hopefully, it will all be sewn up by Friday.
Kudos the Mayor's LGBT Advisory Committee for intervening to ensure all community events are treated fairly.
