  • I just finished reading Armistead Maupin's latest extension to his classic Tales of the City series, Mary Ann in Autumn. It was what I expected: eminently devourable in a day, a low-calorie treat. But it made me realize that, for me and I think for many gay men of my age, 28 Barbary Lane is indeed a state of mind, the home of our "logical" family (as Mrs. Madrigal puts it), where people accept us, care about us, put up with us, understand us, and forgive us our failings. And we all become better for it.
