News: Iceland, T.R. Knight, PETA, Penguins, Karl Rove, Octuplets

road.jpg Portland Mayor Sam Adams back to work: "'Good morning, everybody,' he said to the reporters who rushed to meet him at the doors. 'Happy to be back,' he said. 'Ready to get to work.' He didn't miss a beat, didn't stop to chat. When a reporter tried to ask him about the most recent news reports, he didn't bite. 'I'm happy to answer questions about city business,' he said. Then he slipped into the City Council chamber, where he spent the next two hours discussing a bridge project."

road.jpg Georgia man fights court order on visits with kids: "[Judge] Edwards ordered that neither of the parents could have 'overnight company with a member of the opposite sex, or with any person deemed to be a paramour, unrelated by blood or marriage, in the presence of a child.' One sentence later Edwards wrote: 'Additionally, defendant is prohibited from exposing the children to his homosexual partners and friends.' In his appeal, Mongerson’s attorneys write that such an order was an abuse of the court’s discretion. 'There was no evidence presented that and the court made no finding that exposing the parties’ children to any of Appellant’s homosexual friends would adversely affect the best interests of the children,' according to the appeal. 'Therefore, such a prohibition on appellant’s homosexual friends is an abuse of discretion.'"

  1. Did they put one of the penguins in a dress? How charming. The Chinese respect transfolk as well as gays...better than they do here.

  2. PETA can't honestly have expected that ad to air. They really rely on naked women in a lot of their ads (I'd rather go naked than wear fur). Cue Jason.

    I inadvertently saw five minutes of True Beauty last night. Reminded me why I hate TV, yet love Tivo---I only have to watch things I want to watch. I felt myself getting dumber as each minute passed.

  6. Grown-ass men dating teenagers, regardless of sexual orientation, are an embarrassment to themselves. Pathetic.

  9. Regardless of sex, Sigurdsdottir would be the first out gay prime minister in the world (not just the first gay woman}.
    The Netherlands did have a potential contender but he was murdered by a religious fanatic.

  10. The PETA ad should be banned due it sucking so bad.

  12. T.R. kind of looks like Mr. Potatohead in those photos. Well, in general, really..

  13. **The Netherlands did have a potential contender but he was murdered by a religious fanatic.**

    No he was not murdered by a religious fanatic. Pim Fortuyn was murdered by Volkert van der Graaf, a far leftist who had earlier in his life been an animal rights activist, because he disapproved of the rightward, anti-immigrant direction Fortuyn was pushing Dutch politics.
