update from the Post
FORMER George magazine editor Richard Blow thinks the Washington Post knows something about Condoleezza Rice. The D.C. broadsheet was the only one of hundreds of papers across the country to spike last week's "The Boondocks" comic strip which had a teenage boy character musing: "Maybe if there was a man in the world who Condoleezza truly loved, she wouldn't be so hell-bent to destroy it." In a tompaine.com column, Blow wonders: "Does the Washington Post think Condoleezza Rice is gay?" Blow adds that the strip "could be interpreted as suggesting that Rice is gay. Particularly since there's already scuttlebutt to this effect in Washington, primarily . . . because Rice is single and comes across as a little frosty."
