You'll notice the words gay, lesbian and transgender are never used in this article. The acronym LGBTQI is ridiculous and lazy and counterproductive. Nobody knows anyone who is LGBTQI. There is no LGBTQI community. Real people do not use this term. Ever. Journalists must do their part to stop this nonsense.
Thank you for reporting today's events, John. I didn't know about Dave and Angela until just now. Such a sad day, handled with the utmost heart by my stricken editor Bobbie Jo Buel. Worked with her for all of my 26 years at the Star and I will miss her and everybody else who is working so hard at Park & Irvington and downtown. They are good, smart people. #anotherlaidoffjournalist -- formerly known as M. Scot Skinner.
