A FRIEND OF DOROTHY'S? 

A FRIEND OF DOROTHY'S?

Who is the real Mike Tyson? Is he really the brutally misogynistic dark lord of boxing, with a taste for ears and a hankering for the flesh of infants? Or is he, as some experts have suggested, a closeted intellectual or a frightened child hiding behind a fearsome mask? Does he hate gays? Or, as recent actions seem to suggest, does he want to reach out with his notoriously strong arms, ripped with the long, lean muscles of a seasoned fistic, and give the rainbow community a big ol bear hug? And, while we re at it, what was up with that Argentinean soccer jersey he was wearing when he stepped off the plane at Memphis International Airport? Does Iron Mike have a passionate interest in the World Cup or was he just trying to show his support for our honored country on the last day of Memphis in May? Or could it be, when nobody is looking, he dresses in a vintage ball gown and sings selected hits from Evita?
