Some explanation pleasePosted Wednesday, September 5, 2007, at 8:32 AM
Maybe the world is just getting too weird for me to understand, so perhaps you fine folks out there can help me wrap my head around this question.
All the talk last week was about Sen. Larry Craig and his supposed actions in an airport men's room. The guy was forced to step down because of what allegedly happened ... which I won't go into.
But yet, Ft. Lauderdale's mayor was kicked off the Broward County Tourism Board for ... well ...
Fort Lauderdale - Mayor Jim Naugle's series of controversial comments about homosexuality cost him his seat Tuesday on the board that promotes Broward County to tourists.
The cognitive dissonance is deafening. Craig is forced to resign in disgrace after his airport flirtation is exposed yet the mayor of Fort Lauderdale, who was trying to prevent such things from happening in the name of public health, is called a bigot.
FYI and discuss.
