In a reversal of its early decision, Crystal Lake now says the Gay Games regatta can take place at the spot organizers indicated as their preferred venue. As Brian noted, don't expect the controversy to evaporate: the Tribune quotes local pastor Joel Anderson as describing the situation as an opportunity for ministry -- "We'd wrap the truth in love," he says. And we all know what that means. [An aside: interesting to see the Sun-Times allows quotes containing epithets like "queer."]
