Introduction Hi! I'm just a mutt from German, English, Polish, Norwegian and Scots-Irish peasant stock. Oh, and Jewish peasant stock, too! AFAIK, most of the people with my surname who lived in Germany at the eve of WWII were gotten rid of by Hitler, who happened to be Austrian (and possibly 1/4th Jewish). 100% Queer-American, partnered (if I lived in Mass., Vermont, N.H., Iowa, Conn. or D.C., I could get Married!).

Favorite Movies The Wizard of Oz Beyond the Forest Star Wars (well, used to be)
Favorite Music Coldplay "If I Had Ruled the World", anything by Chumbawamba, anything by the Pet Shop Boys

One question to all you out there who voted for California's question "Proposition 8" because of concerns of what schoolchildren would be taught if the question failed and same-sex marriage stayed intact there: what on Earth do you WANT schoolchildren to be taught?
