[baseball] sweet lou

Maybe I shouldn't be confused about this but--

I'm halfway through The Gunslinger, first of Stephen King's Dark Tower series, and I can't decide for myself a definitive answer on whether or not the relationship I'm reading about is homoerotic or platonic. This doesn't feel like a 'tee-hee, fandom has corrupted me!' sort of analysis what with the descriptions of physical contact and stirrings of love but I've been wrong before. And I really don't know King's style at all.

(But I am enjoying the book so far. It strikes me as Western walks into a bar and orders Foundation, Lord of the Rings, Fullmetal Alchemist with a shot of Howl's Moving Castle and a rim lined with Pullman crack. That's my kind of drink.)
