THE FALL OF '55—Connections to the Larry Craig Scandal

At Frameline earlier this year I befriended and interviewed Seth Randal whose film The Fall of '55 sold out its first screening. Quite by chance I was in Boise no less than a few weeks later and was given a personal tour by Seth and the film's historian Alan Virta of the "scene of the crime", so to speak.

On his blog
The Daily Dish—responding to the recent Larry Craig scandal—Andrew Sullivan linked his comments to Randal's film. Today's readers of The New York Times will find an op-ed piece co-authored by Seth and Alan Virta on the historically relevant connections between Idaho's original same-sex scandal and Larry Craig's personal defeat.
