Too what?

I don't know if you caught it, but last month's HOUR Detroit did a one-page portrait profile on Craig Covey, gay Ferndale uber politician and possibly their next mayor. That's a pretty nice inclusive thing to do, don't you think?

Until you get to the end, where they ask Craig, "If you become mayor, will that make Ferndale 'too gay'?"

Excuse me? Too gay? What the hell does that mean, and why would that even be a perceived problem?

Would someone say "Is Detroit too black?" or "Is West Bloomfield too Jewish?"

They might, but we'd call them bigots.
