One More for Jesse

I don't know how I missed this.

Actually, I do; 1991 was the year I moved out of my hometown, started my first teaching job, and became a father, all by the end of September.  I missed a lot that year.

But that's no excuse for my having failed to acknowledge one of the truly inspiring bits of practical jokery/community activism/performance art of the last century.

Yes, in 1991, an ACT UP group put a giant condom over Jesse Helms' house.

And yes, POZ has pictures and video at the site.

I cannot begin to express my admiration.
