According to police reports, a 17-year-old, male cheerleader from Malden alleged that an unidentified female teen from Melrose began harassing him with homosexual slurs. When the cheerleader ignored the taunts, a male teen accompanying the female, described as a 17-year-old, white male with a lip piercing and wearing a black hat, allegedly punched the cheerleader in the face and several times in the chest.”

    Andy, please keep a straight face if you’re going to claim that no cabinet secretary in recent Democratic administrations ever favored important Democrats in awarding discretionary contracts. It’s the name of the game.

    LOL. If straight people only knew the HALF of what goes on in just about *every* gym in America…

    A local Bally’s mega gym in these parts was once listed in “Damron’s Guide”. I can attest to actually seeing it all!

    On the Idiot’s issues, funny how they tried to fry Hillary over Whitewater, but no one wants to take on the favoritism that is going on in this admistration. So glad that the precedent has been set that abuse of power is now considered business as usual.

    So tell me… how are things in other countries? I am actually thinking about moving. Canada? I hear you’re country has this thing called a democracy. What is that all about?

    I caught a news segment the other evening on ABC about the IRS cracking down on a church that openly opposed Bush and the war. The IRS said they could not use the pulpit for political reasons… huh?

    and the number one movie in America (drum roll please)… … … …

    Jackass 2. Just goes to show the intelligence level and maturity of American audiences. Motion pictures were once graced with the talent and virtue of Audrey Hepburn and Laurence Olivier, now we have “celebrities” pissing on red carpets at the premiere to their number one films. We’ve come so far… How pathetic.

    Hey, Cory….settle down a little.

    Things really weren’t so great in the US in the 1950s. Would you have wanted to be a gay man then? I certainly wouldn’t have.

  6. Cory says

    ^^^ What??? How does society losing class and taste have anything to do with being gay in the 1950’s? Apples and oranges. Society can accept homosexuality without accepting “celebrities” pissing during the openings of movies. As for me settling down, I’m quite settled but I appreciate your concern, thank you…

  7. jmg says

    you just sound like my grandmother waxing nostalgic about how classy the old days were. And I am sure people in the 50s thought the 20s were better, too. Audrey Hepburn–Please. Give me the present any day of the week.

    And you don’t seem that settled.

  8. Cory says

    It’s obvious you’re looking for an argument and I’m not going to give you the satisfaction. If you’re bored and high strung, go for a run. I’m done here. PEACE.
