OCTOBER 4, 1985 / MONTROSE VOICE 9
From Carl Denton
Did the GPC do the right thing hy voting
not to endorse a single candidate in this
year's city elections? I think they made the
right choice, simply for the fact that the
Straight Slate and Louie Welch can't beat
it over the heads of the people that supported us in the past.
After hours of heated debate at the GPC
meeting on Sept. 18, a noendorsementpol-
icy was handed down. Don't cry about it.
This is a bad year for gay rights. The
gay community should get out the vote
and step back and see what happens. If
our supporters win this election, then, and
only then, will we know that the gay,
albeit morality, issue, didn't hold water.
Things change and not everyone is going
to like the way it turns out.
Remember something. Why should
Kathy Whitmire campaign in the gay
community when she knows she has the
gay vote locked up? It is called smart politics. You're not thinking of voting for Louie
Welch, are you?

I recently saw the video that MTV is airing of the Dire Straits' song "Money For
Nothing." The video contains the following lyrics:
See the little faggot with the earring and
Yeah, buddy, that's his own hair
That little faggot got his own jet airplane
That little faggot, he's a millionaire
I was angered and offended by MTV's
broadcast of those lyrics, and have written
to MTV expressing those feelings. I wish
to bring this matter to your attention, and
provide you with the following address so
that your readers may write directly to
MTV to express their feelings concerning
the "Money For Nothing" video.
The Address of MTV is: MTV Networks,
Inc., 1133 Avenue of the Americas, New

Getting Back on
the Right Track?
From Grant LukenbiM
Isn't it comforting to know that the true
guardians of freedom and morality are
defining our place in life for us? No longer
need we concern ourselves with militant
ideas of "sexual orientation" legislation,
or "freedom from discrimination," and
"political oppression." We no longer have
to worry about outlandish visions of
homosexual quarantine, ostrasization
from city employment, or public lynch-
Gone are the dayB of paranoia and anxiety once connected to the ubiquotouB forces of bigotry and extremism. We live in a
time when the dogmatic steam engine of a
vogue morality is finally roaring thunderously down the right track.
Our public servants and their corporate
allies have just begun to recognize their
duty to uphold contemporary living
values and the foundation of "true Christianity" so that we may all conduct our
lives "freely" but in an "orderly" and
Concern for unity and understanding of
each others needs is no longer necessary;
public alertness and political readiness
have no place in the currently evolving
Close may we now the doors of democracy and representative government;
make way for the necessary arm of facism;
be grateful we activists didn't go too far.
Now children may be properly inculcated
with a sense of what is moral and what is
perverted, the values of obedience, understanding of a police state, and the necessary repercussion of dissent!!
It was a close call but we can now all rest
assurred that a perniciously contagious
virus, largely segregating a minority
group (whether naturally occurring or otherwise), has lead us to become a fearfully-
obsequious community, politically
impotent, and benignly, self-oppressed in
order to keep things on the "right track."
You're never too old
to quit blowing smoke.
