Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

Still standing up for rights, respect
I am honored to count these two, lovely, distinguished, gentlemen as my friends and neighbors. They have welcomed me into their gracious and elegant home on many occasions for dinners and parties, and I cannot imagine better role models for this cause. They are true veterans in the cause for civil rights in a very real and literal sense.
Now, four decades after risking his life in a civil rights struggle for others, Blackburn, 73, says it is time to fight for himself. Along with his partner of 28 years, Glen Dehn, he is a plaintiff in a lawsuit seeking to expand marriage to gay and lesbian couples in Maryland.
