They've HAAD It

Online readers respond to "Conversations­ with Decent People," by Richard ­Connelly, Hair Balls blog, September 17:

New recruits: The letter mentions how "gays might start the recruiting process." I've gotten recruitment visits from Jehovah's Witnesses and been yelled at by Baptists. I've never been approached, by anyone, to join Team Gay. The "gay agenda" is preposterous. Honestly. Has "decency" become a synonym for "delusional"?

Just, wow: I am in shock, as much by the content of the response as by the grammar used to convey it. I cannot believe they actually said that grocery stores are in danger because "gays might start the recruiting process." I hear you get a free toaster for every person you recruit to be gay. And a cruise for every dozen!

Regardless of your beliefs on gay marriage, I think we can all agree this is out of control. And far from decent.



In his September 17 review of Bar-B-Que Blues at 5404 Almeda, Robb Walsh incorrectly stated that Luther's BBQ once occupied the space. In fact, Harlon's BBQ was the former occupant.

And in our September 24 Best of Houston® edition, the blurb for Best Art Show, "Understanding Poverty" at DiverseWorks, should have named Ann Walton Sieber along with Ben Tecumseh DeSoto; the two collaborated on the show.

The Houston Press regrets the errors.
