Mike Peters, former lead singer of 80's band The Alarm, played at Shank Hall in an intimate one-man show focusing on The Alarm's second studio album Strength. I could review how cool the show was to see him up close and personal, acoustic with minimal back track assistance, the fact he played harmonica or a bass drum at the same time as the guitar, or his stories about making the album - but this isn't the place for that. As inspiring as the show was, the end of it turned into a truly GMM moment when Peters took a moment to promote his foundation Love Hope Strength, which focuses on getting people to sign up on the list to be marrow donors.

The concept is for a household of less than 3 people (yes that us 2 or 1) to invite others over to share a meal. There are many reasons for it including allowing for making of recipes you can't cut down to serve a few, reduce waste of said extra helpings (because really how many actually eat leftovers), and also, well, just to be social.

Hopefully these days will be in the past soon,when it is considered 'historic' for a professional athlete to come out as gay. For now though we can celebrate and congratulate when it happens, for it still is a big deal as much as I wish it was old hat by now. For Milwaukee professional baseball team the Brewers, history was made when Davd Denson, minor league player, though not on the Brewers major league roster still an MLB pro with the organization, came out as gay.
The full story, relating how he came out in response to derogatory comments made at and about him can be read at the Milwaukee Journal/Sentinel in a great article by Tom Haudricourt. It tells an unfortunately typical tale of locker room shenanigans that use various derogatory terms, and how he overcame them, but what I found most interesting was the support he got from the club and the league.
