* Vote for Me, I'm Gay * - News: More gays and lesbians are running for 
higher political offices than ever before, thanks in part to the Gay and 
Lesbian Victory Fund. But the Fund's gays-only strategy is starting to 
raise hackles in, of all places, San Francisco.


* Nader's Greens Invisible to Blacks * - Reality Check: There are plenty 
of reasons why blacks and Latinos should vote for Nader. So why isn't he 
talking to them?


* Dead Man Warbling * - Culture: The latest version of Sister Helen 
Prejean's story is all right, if you like opera. But why doesn't anyone 
make big-budget spectaculars about prisoners who aren't on death row?
