Correcting Xtra’s mistakes

The 1997.12.18 edition of the widely reviled Toronto fagrag Xtra carried a story, by Michael Kealy, entitled "Is there enough cash to go around? Gay Games bidders say they’re not competing for hard-to-find dollars." Kealy selectively quotes my Toronto Gay Games VI bid analysis and gives Toronto bid potentatrix Jennifer Myers more than enough rope to hang herself.

Shall we register some corrections here?

We of course expect this level of careless fact-checking and editing, axe-grinding, and journalistic incompetence from Xtra, which never heard a rumour it wouldn’t print.
