In celebration of Memorial Day weekend, during which we pay solemn tribute to our fallen heroes by stubbornly donning tanktops regardless of prohibitive weather conditions, Defamer will be posting for a half-day today, and returning to a full posting schedule Tuesday. Mark has already taken off, and is at this very moment unpacking his beloved "BBQ Jedi" apron and tongs-of-the-trade, which leaves your associate editor at the helm. Here's wishing everyone a great summer kickoff long weekend, overflowing with family and friends, rope-swing plunges into the ol' watering hole, and thrilling, gay-allegorical comic book adaptations.
