National Coming Out Day
I have this perverse urge to come out, Diana Ross-style, as something. But I don't want to sully what is actually a serious day of commemoration. So I'll hold those thoughts for a more appropriate time.

While I have you on the phone, though, doesn't it seem like that song was written to become a huge hit in the gay disco scene? Bernard Edwards and Nile Rogers were pretty darned savvy. They knew who was playing their Chic records. At the very least, they had uncanny marketing instincts, especially given the way that song followed its predecessor off the Diana album -- "Boy/You're turning me/Upside down" -- up the charts.

Oh come on. Surely there's *something* pervy in there?
