News: Hillary Death Threat, Spock, Hurricanes, Portishead

road.jpg Pacific Justice Institute, a conservative, non-profit legal defense group specializing in religious freedom and parental rights, challenges Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels for ordering city departments to recognize employees in gay marriages sanctioned elsewhere. Matthew McReynolds: "It's our position that this goes way beyond employee benefits. He was just using this as an opportunity to undercut the (state) Defense of Marriage Act."

Imesonroad.jpg Manhunt underway for Norman Imeson in Canada. Imeson is wanted in connection with the murder of Carlos Rivera, 26, who was a bartender at Taps, a gay strip club in Windsor. Police warn, do not pick up hitchhikers: "People should just be extra cautious. We believe (Imeson) does not have a mode of transportation . . . In rural areas, people leave their doors open, their cars open, so they should be careful."

road.jpg REPORT: Genre editor Chris Ciompi is out, to be replaced by Men's Fitness editor Neal Boulton. Also, Genre possibly bankrupt. This all sounds so familiar.

road.jpg Secret Service looking into death threats against Hillary Clinton posted on Bill O'Reilly's website: "If Hillary guns are loaded."

road.jpg Elton John regrets keeping mum on gay issues when he was younger: "I have to speak my mind because as a gay man now I have a responsibility to. I sat back too long. I mean when (AIDS charity) Act Up were going in and trying to change the face of AIDS awareness in America because nobody else was doing it, I sat back and did nothing. I don't know why I didn't do anything. I just look back and question myself."

Belfryroad.jpg Ptown: Historic 12-ton belfry that has been sitting on the ground since 2002 to return to the top of the Provincetown Library at 5 am tomorrow. "Library Director Debra DeJonker-Berry expects a huge crowd of well-wishers to be present on Commercial Street and on the nearby beaches to watch this historic event. The 29-foot tall belfry has sat on the front of the Library property since 2002 when it was hoisted to the ground for restoration and so that structural repairs to the building could be completed."

Ruddroad.jpg His cuteness Paul Rudd pays a visit to TRL.

road.jpg Hungarian Secretary of State for Human Resources Gabor Szetey speaks out on coming out: "I think my coming out took so long partly because I was 22 in 1990. Until I turned 22, I thought I was an alien. I really opened up in New York where Gay Pride meant that several hundreds of thousands of people marched: it was a carnival, a huge party where families joined with their kids to have fun and educate their kids about tolerance. I will be the happiest if I don't have to speak about this issue any more. If I have to, I will."

road.jpg Vulcanized: Zachary Quinto (Heroes' Sylar) to play Spock in new JJ Abrams Star Trek film.

road.jpg Hurricane outlook cut for 2007: "The season will bring 14 named storms, of which six will become hurricanes and three will become major hurricanes, WSI said in its revised outlook. WSI had previously expected 15 named storms of which eight would become hurricanes and four would become major hurricanes. 'Because the ocean temperatures have not yet rebounded from the significant drop in late spring, we have decided to reduce our forecast numbers slightly' said Todd Crawford, a WSI seasonal forecaster."

  1. Folks, please take note that the "tolerance" rally was to take place in the former Soviet republic and not here in the USA. Of course, there's little difference between the Orthodox Church and the Southern Baptist Church in terms of their hatred of gay people, so it could be similar.

    One of the greatest failures of the Soviet Union was their inability to crush and eradicate forever the Russian Orthodox Church. The Orthodox Church today is an enemy of gay people and of freedom in general. The Russian Orthodox Church was complicit with the Czars and participated in pogroms and other abuses inflicted on the Russian population. They were responsible for much of the horrors of the pre-revolutionary period. Their actions today echo their actions of yesterday.

    And yes, in this case, it is true that they "hate us for our freedom".

  2. With all the artists, crafts people and builders living in PTown you'd think they would have gotten this thing back up in a few months. Sadly our joke about this pile wood will come to an end. Hopefully they'll replace it with a bench if they can find a furniture maker to make one.

  3. I hate Chris Ciompi. He's an asshole. Glad he got canned.

  4. Huh, learn something new everyday. Who else didn't realize that ACT-UP was actually an "(AIDS charity)"?

    Well, thanks to The Sun, now we know.

  6. Directly above, see Log Cabin troll post. Andy, this is why I have pretty much stopped posting here at all. Joe.My.God. moderates his own threads like a website owner, duh, should.

  7. Until how long can we count on not seeing another post?

  8. In other words: Joe My God just edits out what he doesn't like..? I think Andy Towle is as slanted as can be, but I do give him credit for allowing full freedom of speech in the comments.

  9. Joe T is right, Andy Towle does let us react to his posts with a certain freedom of speech, unlike Kenneth 212, and for that I say thanks! I would, however, like to know why we are frequently directed to Perez Hilton and Pink/New Blog sites? My spyware filter ALWAYS catches those sites trying to load spyware onto my computer, ALWAYS. At least Towleroad doesn't attempt to put TRACKING spyware in my computer, for that, again, I say thanks.

  10. Okay, I'm going to geek real hard.

    "Sylar" as Spock is great casting. The rumor that Matt Damon will play Kirk? Matt is 37. Shatner is was 35 when it start playing Kirk. How can Damon play a younger Kirk?

    Besides, Damon isn't good looking enough. Go look at the old footage. William Shatner may be a bit long in the tooth now, but in the 60s, he was a good looking guy. Recently some compared Lance Bass to applying an iron to his face. I would rank Matt Damon below that. (And I don't even agree with the assessment of Lance).

    I will now stop geeking. temporarily.

    In other news, when will Men's Fitness stop sending emails about how to please my woman? Come on guys. Get with the program.
