Dear GYA, As a woman  I'm completely shocked and disappointed with Representative Todd Akin's recent comments. But as a small-business owner, I'm even more pissed because I was two days away from debuting my new line of Pinots, Legitimate Grape. Well, now that the wine dream is over, anything good this weekend? - Michelle Trufflemore, Sandy---

Michelle, it's a shame that Todd Akin is such an ignorant ass. But you're right, it's also a shame that no one can preface anything with the word "legitimate" ever again. I was at Outback Steakhouse the other night, and one of my best friends bit into a porterhouse and said, "Man, that's a legitimate steak." The booth next to us got up and left. Anyways, here's what's happening this weekend:

Let's start with Friday
