Wade (and Eric, and Joel, and Steve, and Meg) really makes an excellent case here, regarding Dixon's rant about the sisters.
I work primarily with LBGTIQQA folks, in private practice as a licensed clinical psychologist, as a member of Humboldt State's Critical Race, Gender and Sexuality Studies department, and as owner of a local business that is a proud supporter of Humboldt Pride.
I'm confident that if there were a well-spring of criticism as Dixon describes it, I would have heard it. While I don't know Mr./Ms. Sommers, I am confident I have more expertise here than s/he does.
Drag, in the sense that the Sisters perform it, isn't remotely misogynistic or anti-feminist. They are effective fund-raisers working (unlike many other houses of sisters) on a broad variety of causes in our community.
I'd love to see a list of what Dixon has accomplished, please feel free to respond here. I think we'd all like to see those.

I'm frustrated with the complacency of both Ms. Hulsey and supervisor Duffy. Yes, we have frequent fog so we should plan, advocate, and fight for a tower back so that the weather has less impact on our economy. It's incredibly arrogant to assume everyone has the flexibility and wherewithall to make contingency plans every time they need to travel in or out of town as Ms. Duffy suggests.
I'd like to know the supervisor candidate's views on how this can be examined retrospectively and the appropriate parties held accountable, but more importantly, how we can improve overall accessiblity and service at our airport.
Wow. Good for him!!
