Here’s a thoughtful monologue by my favourite editor, columnist and activist that’s funny and thoughtful and sad and true, and might even make you tear up a bit. Dan Savage’s mother passed away on March 31, 2008. She sounds like a hell of a mom.

You can read infinitely more Dan Savage here. He writes books, too. I recommend this one. There isn’t even much swearing in it.
