Queer Eye-themed weekend

So I was helping my boyfriend walk the dogs he was dog-sitting yesterday, and just as he's picking up after one of them, I look across the street and see Kyan, the "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" grooming expert. Right there in Chelsea! I'm not making this up.

Then today, we saw "Grizzly Man." My first thought was, what's Carson doing, living with bears (and not, say, "bears")? My second thought, once the Warner Herzog narration began, was that the whole thing might just be a long-lost Monty Python movie. Why bears? Why did so many (at least three) women go for Timothy Treadwell, a man who not only looked and acted just like the most flamboyant member of the "Queer Eye" team, but who chose to live with (and talk baby-talk to) dangerous wild animals? I will answer my own question: Many say, when asked why even the most ridiculous people inspire romantic interest, that there's someone for everyone. In fact, there are several people for everyone. That--and not a special lure of violence--explains why even serial killers get married. Did women like the combination of toughness and sensitivity? The golden locks? More likely, it's just that everyone--bear-crazed lunatics included--has his share of admirers.
