I don’t get the joke, but I love Ethiopian food.

About a year ago I took Peterson to Ethiopian when he was in LA only to find out on his last visit to XGW Mike they’d also gone for Ethiopian. Ergo Ethiopian is the official cuisine of ex-ex-gays.

The podcast works like a charm! It’s compatible with my .mp3 player/phone/PDA/GPS/TV Remote/garage-door-opener/flashlight all-in-1 unit.

All I ask: why all the dropouts? Could you use a higher bit-rate compression next time? (Keep in mind, I’m an obsessive compulsive wearer of in-the-ear-canal, noise-suppression earphones that demand the utmost quality audio sources.)

Oh, and thank you for mentioning the Mormon/Gay thing on PBS coming on FRONTLINE. There is more to the Trevor Southey story and the gay Mormon issue but I will wait until I see the documentary before I impart my opinion or comments.

Please keep your eyes open for an off-broadway play coming: FACING EAST. It will be in NYC in May and then will be presented in San Francisco in August. If you want more information I am sure you can GOOGLE it. Carol Lynn Pearson and Utah’s Plan-B Company produce this play. I haven’t seen it, yet, but from what I hear it’s a two-hankie play…tugs mightily at the heart strings…captures the essence of theological dogma as it relates to family and religion.

I can’t wait until next Wednesday.

Unfortunately Gizmo, the program I use for phone interviews only records conversations at 8000Hz. I’m still researching other options however.
