A hero in drag
I really, really hate hero-worship, so much so that I sometimes fail to notice when an actual hero is being worshipped. This time I had to jump on the bandwagon though, for the following quote from the SF Chronicle website:
His brother-in-law and close friend, Alex Garwood, described how Tillman handled his duties when he became godfather to Garwood's son. He came to the ceremony dressed as a woman. Not as a religious commentary. He was doing a balancing act.
"We had two godfathers, no godmother,'' Garwood explained. And what NFL player turned Army Ranger wouldn't don drag to make that math work?
The last thing that I would have expected. Someone who could pass through that kind of macho lifestyle and show up in drag deserves respect.
