Knowing this about me pretty much opened all doors as far as the police were concerned. Where did I live? Oh, yeah, that used to be on my beat. Did my son know your daughter? And, BTW, is that the new Canon 5D?
At Newton South High School, there is a chapter of a student group called "The Gay/Straight Alliance", GSA. I knew about this group, but never gave them much thought. But about half a dozen of them showed up about when the police did, were let into the school and made hundreds of yellow ribbons, which are a symbol of tolerance in the play. As people started to show up for the play, the GSA members stood at the entrance and offered them these ribbons, which were pretty much universally accepted.
