Aw, lower right!

My camera crapped out and simultaneously ran out of battery and memory half-way through the interview, but I should have most of the first half up on YouTube soon. It was a really interesting and somewhat touching interview. I appreciate what Mike Jones has done for us all, and I'm glad you're supporting him.

If the best way to thank Mike is to pay for that book...

I seem to recall the answer to 'shoot or dribble' being 'shoot.'

Uh, Dan, what's that all over your face on the upper left picture?

Those photo booths sometimes leave splotches on the photos, that's what's on his face. I have one that looks like I've got a huge birthmark on my forehead, it's pretty hideous.

This was a fantastic event, nowhere near the dirty romp I expected:

Thanks to Dan and the Stranger for supporting Mike when he needed it, and now - when others are jumping aboard.

Oh jesus christ. The one video that my computer decides is corrupt is, of course, the Mike Jones interview. Fuck my memory card.

Oh, Dan, you really are adorable.

Thank you, Mike. (and Dan)

I wish you had asked him why he voted for Bush in the last election.

Really? You liked the book, Dan? I thought it was awful--a mess on so many levels. At least half of the blame goes to Gallegos.

But I still bought it, read it (cringeingly in so many places) and still think Mike did a great thing.

Dan, thanks for this post. My parents gave $18,500 to Haggard's church during my high school years. I was an only child, and a "band fag". They saw that I would never be the lawyer, doctor, or quarterback they so desperately wanted, so my college fund went directly to the New Life Church. I left home at 18, moved to New York, got residency, grants/loans at Hunter, eventually writing for the AP. After 10 years of not speaking to my parents, the healing has begun. They regret being duped by the Vaudville schtick that Haggard employed, and regret driving away their only child. Hopefully others will use him as precedent bringing pause for rational thought before committing themselves to such blatant fraud and hate.

@14, Good for you getting on your feet. My parents stopped helping me through college when I came out to them and then turned around and billed me for what they paid towards my schooling. I never paid them and have never talked to them since. That was back in 1994 and I have never regretted it at all.

FYI, here's a review of the service on Ted Haggard's 50th birthday at New Life Church ~ pre-revelation.

Dan looks better and better with age. But I do kinda feel guilty about my attraction. Not because I’m lusting after a married man, but for the fact that I recently saw Dan’s “mile high” afro from his yearbook photo. Dan looked like a total geek; I wouldn’t have given him a second glance – it would have been too painful!

What a difference 20 years makes! Never judge a book by its cover: Sometimes ugly ducklings turn into hunky, hip, bigot slaying swans.

He’s taken. Sign…….
