Why do the gays get the rights to the rainbow? I think they should redesign it.

Not only was this "designer" glib and irrelevent, but his "designs" were over-worked and complicated. The beauty of the rainbow flag is in its simplicity. This guy was a self-promoting hack. Kurt Andersen should be ashamed. I think most people expect better from WNYC than this kind of vapid derisive treatment of the GLBT community.
