Sorry guys. I made a mistake. I talked with James Simms, from Michigan GOAL, last night. He said that he did not want to become president when Cole stepped down. As a result, he will remain in the vice president position. The new president of Michigan GOAL comes from the TSA. He's a very nice person who I met when I flew to Michigan to join GOAL in the Michigan gay pride parade. Sorry for the mix up. More info to follow.
Thanks for the update, Carroll. Hummm... TSA... the same agency that has treated me (and a LOT of senior/disabled travelers) so badly (on many occasions.) I would like to think a gay man from TSA at the helm of MI GOAL might make a positive difference in TSA/public relations. Might the new MI pres be coming to the annual Conference?
Okay... fresh cookies being served in the BluePride break room!

So....at an annual dinner for a certain group....a formerly prestigious award was presented to a couple of individuals who actively worked against said group years ago. And one person who was a witness to the classless behavior voiced his displeasure for a few months before the award was given out. And at the dinner, the board of said group had a "watchdog" sitting and staring at him while the award was presented. To make sure he didn't cause a scene. (He really wasn't going to...) They were scared because they knew they were in the wrong and were crapping on the history. But that doesn't matter, does it? It's all..."me, me, me" these days.... Oh well....it's not the first time they've pulled the wool over innocent eyes and I'm sure it won't be the last. Whores of a feather, right? Who said, years ago, that there was no "I" in GOAL ......oh, what does it matter? Well...I said it.
