I’m not sure what this music video is supposed to do.
Did the Christians murder the dead guy before or after they burned his house down?

Are they going to call themselves the “Rebaggers”?

In lieu of cash, send Mr. Zimmerman a bag of Skittles.
I am not planning to participate in the local Kiss-In in Hollywood, but I have been rather touched by several Straight friends asking if it would be appropriate for them to participate with their spouses and/ or gay friends as a show of solidarity.

Well, even NOM has their limits I suppose…!
Greybat commented on the blog post For your captioning pleasure: WH portraits Of President George W. Bush and Mrs. Laura Welch Bush unveiled
These portraits are not formal enough for period rooms. They look like photoshopped magazine covers.
But then, the former occupants of the white House didn’t really live up to the furniture, either.
How pretty your mom was! You look a lot like her.

They should have named it “The Blair Snatch Project”.

And he didn’t even stop to ask if she had Fire Insurance. These days, that alone is impressive!

There are plenty of Gods. None of them are particularly interested in what Porno Pete has to say.

Here’s an interesting article that may tell us where some of the money went:
Greybat commented on the blog post Is it 2011? Applebee’s server: I Only Got Black Tables. Plus a Q of the day
Years ago I was a waiter on the Graveyard shift at a Denny’s in Walnut Creek, CA.
It was uniquely situated just off a freeway, and walking distance from several bars and two Gay discos.
Since we only had Managers until 2AM, we had to self-manage during the Bar Rush, accommodating the flood of tipsy Bar People, cruisy Disco people, and weary travelers and night-workers who just wanted something to eat.
Our solution was to divide the floor into three sections, Gay (the back room), Straight, (the middle floor), and Normal, (the front area near the Lobby and counter.
It was a bad solution to a worse problem, but during Bar rush our main goal was preventing fights, as well as protecting our tips. The Gay customers were delighted to have the back all to themselves, where they could scream, yell and cruise each other till dawn.
The Straights could take their time times trying to make out the pictures in the Menu, and try to hit on the Waitresses (Good Luck with that, Foster!), and the Normals could just eat and run.
This would work well until, as Drunks will, somebody decided to switch tables, usually one of the Straight drunks, who decided that that nice dim room in the back with the divider drawn across it would be much more private and interesting, and within minutes would be complaining that somebody seated a bunch of Fags and Dykes in HIS section.
Being the Worst Waiter in the World, I would usually reply, “Well, no wonder, Sir! Youre in the GAY SECTION!” And offer him a table in his proper area.
This of course would totally break down if a new Manager was being trained, since the Corporate Policy towards seating seemed to be to mix the Patrons in Cross-Cultural Mix of Cosmopolitan Conviviality. Or, they just didn’t know any better.
Anyway, the fights would break out, the Customers would complain, the tips went down, the Regulars would storm out, and swear they would never come to such a dump again (and the next week they were back!), and we would get a stern post-it note from the Manager that there where to be no more segregating the Customers in Denny’s, or there would be immediate Terminations.
And like good little Self-Managers, we would quietly go about Seating in our own fashion.
