"Bellydancing Toward Gomorrah in today's Lexington Herald-Leader

My piece, "Bellydancing Toward Gomorrah" appeared in today's Lexington Herald-Leader. Of course, the headline writer (never trust such people) completely blew the headline, putting "Bellydancing to Gomorrah," which completely loses the cultural allusion to Robert Bork's "Slouching Toward Gomorrah," which itself was an allusion to W. B. Yeats expression, "slouching toward Bethlehem," from his "The Second Coming."

But what am I thinking. Journalists should be culturally literate? Oh well, they ran it, and we are happy with small things these days.
