so on the 40th anniversary of the stonewall riots, fort worth police and tabc agents raided a newly-opened gay club on jennings, arresting seven and sending one patron to the hospital with a fractured skull. makes me wonder if the fort has really come as far as i'd been thinking it had in the last 30 years. a friend of ours who was downtown sunday said that when the hundred or so protesters marched past 8.0's on their way to the courthouse, "about 65 percent" of the people sitting on the bar's patio gave them a standing ovation. it will be interesting to see how this shakes out.
