Trent Lott Tours Memphis, Atlanta, Richmond: Gay Protest Planned

Trent Lott will be in Memphis tomorrow to sign his new book, Herding Cats. He's scheduled to appear at Davis Kidd Booksellers (387 Perkins Road Extended) at 6:00pm.

The Queer Action Coalition is organizing a protest. Memphis is a pretty liberal city, I don't know why Trent Lott wants to go there.

UPDATE: Lott will be signing his book in Atlanta on 9/9/05, 8:00 PM at Atlanta History Center – West Paces Ferry Rd. Atlanta, GA. Compliments of Chapter 11 Books. He will be in Richmond on 9/10/05, 3:00 PM at Barnes & Noble – West Broad St. Richmond, VA.

I'm betting Atlanta and Richmond will welcome Senator Lott with some fine protests too.

On a slightly related note, Bill Maher will be signing his book in L.A., on Sept. 12th at Borders. No Fair. Just once, can't Trent Lott go to L.A. and Bill Maher tour the South?
