There's really nothing of newsworthy note here, and yet I'm posting about it. Why? Because anytime a press release comes and the featured pairing at an event is Liza Minelli and Scott Fujita, then it amuses me and I have to share it.
Fujita, perennial good guy, is being honored by PFLAG. He will do so while trying to avoid being eaten or married by Minelli. The press release, for anyone interested, is excerpted below. Liza Minelli jokes can go in the comment section.
