First I’d like to say that it’s an honor…

…just to be cited as a cultural reference point with these illustrious women. From a theater review in today’s NYT:

All advice givers and etiquette experts—from Emily Post to Ann Landers, Miss Manners to Dan Savage—can probably agree on at least one admonition, namely that reading someone else’s diary is a no-no.

Well, *do* you agree that reading someone else's diary is a no-no?

If so, what have you got against Ned Rorem? He's just trying to earn a living!

One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just doesn't belong.

That is totally an honor. How nice.

Reading someone's diary is wrong, unless it's interesting, which it pretty much always is.

Prissy old hags who are always riding the cotton pony, no surprise at all to see you in there. At least those queens aren't running around saying Obama will be shot and the sky is falling.

I just went through my Times to find this. You're famous, Dan! FAMOUS!

For what it is worth, Dr. "my soldier boy thinks rape is a joke" Laura encourages parents to read their children's diaries. Really.

Let me just say it's an honor to read about every single two-bit honor bestowed upon Dan Savage, every little mention in print, every TV appearance, every book tour, all the minutiae of his life. It's better than actually being Dan Savage. Because when I wake up in the morning, I am not Dan Savage. And yet I can practically experience everything he's experiencing, right here on Slog.

Thats nice and all, but you really hit the big time when you were on Bill Maher. Are you planning on doing more shows with him for the upcoming season?

@9: Wait, what? The Savage Love Blog revolves around Dan Savage, his thoughts, and his interests? Holy shit, thanks for alerting me so I can stop reading the Savage Love Blog - where I hoped to read about everything BUT Dan Savage, his thoughts, and his interests - now.

Thank God for cool, aloof people like you... who spend their time reading and commenting on blogs they have no interest in.
