What will it take for a lawyer to defeat a drag queen in San Francisco? No, this isn't the start to a bad lawyer joke. The fact is that city supervisors are torn over whether to appoint local attorney D. Gill Sperlein to the Entertainment Commission or give the job to San Francisco's notorious drag queen Glendon Hyde, aka Anna Conda.
Although Sperlein might make a better case for why he should be selected to serve, there's no arguing that Anna Conda knows all about entertainment. But critics point out that the opening is for the position of neighborhood representative, and argue that the local drag queen is unsuited as the Commission's liaison with neighborhood associations.
