My cousin Erin got married this weekend in Washington D.C. and Jen and I wouldn't have missed it for the world. I have many fond childhood memories of both Erin and her sister, Stephanie, and am so glad we have re-connected as adults, spending some time together here in New York this past year. An unfortunate incident occured at the reception, something I am replaying in my head over and over, wishing I had said and done things differently. Jen and I discuss what happened here because now, with video and the Internet, people are held more accountable for their actions. I chose not to record the incident as it was happening out of respect for my cousin Erin on her wedding day. But I will say this: The invention of video blogging and the convenience of You Tube is a gauntlet thrown down at the feet of bigotry, homophobia, sexism, racism and all the ugliness that humans can muster. Best behave, Cousin Fred. Best behave. Music by: Keane


  1. Accountable. Yes. Accountable to love most of all, in the big picture. And that, that is the absolute BEST we can do.

  2. Amazing. I don't know how people like that don't know when to stop talking and/or drinking. If it's any consolation, that is probably only one of a series of drunken and embarrassing moments for Fred. He digs his own grave socially.
