Today was the first I'd heard of this (also here and here.)

Fucking horrific. Equally nasty is the burying of the story, the "oh, it can't be a real hate crime because the victim wasn't really gay." type of crap, and the "gay panic" defense.

With friends like that, who needs enemies?

With the brain damage I've had since? Only somewhat. We had a lot of fun back then, that I do remember, and I wish I still had that place - it was a great place to have people over for a weekend.

I'm renting a small house in San Jose. It's not a good place for entertaining and having people hang out, and I'm a bit bummed about that. But it's in my budget, and is one of those nifty historicals - over 100 years old!

Re: a blast from the past - namely, san jose and staying in your house
yeah, where i'm living now (the man i'm living w/now) - this place is small, barely enough for 2 people -
i can't imagine having any more than that in the house...
