Real rain arrived this week. It has been coming down as if the goddess aimed a giant firehose at Seattle.
Anyway, it’s time for this week’s Friday Five in which I bring you: one story that needs its own category, the top five stories of the week, five stories of interest to queers and our allies, five stories about traitors, and five stories about haters and other deplorable people. Plus one thing I posted this week.
