The Nose

So This Spanish Girl, This Christian Legislator, and These Jewish Guys Walk Into a Bar . . .

Posted 2/2/2005

On Friday, Jan. 28, Del. Don Dwyer (R-Anne Arundel County) continued his crusade against gay marriage with a rally in Annapolis. The next day his legislative aide Caleb Griffin sent out an e-mail press release boasting of the rally’s success. Between 1,000 and 2,800 people showed up, according to the press release, which goes on to state that “men and women of every ethnicity, young and old, from the farthest-reaching corners of the state braved the below freezing temperatures to support a constitutional amendment that defines marriage as between a man and a woman.” But what interested the Nose most were the digital photos that went with the press release. In addition to a generic crowd shot, Griffin included photos of two girls holding a sign written in Spanish and three men in long beards and black hats holding the Bible. The file names for these pictures? Spanish_girls and Three_jews.
