  1. Apparently the organizers of Coachella pulled the plug on the Cure when they played too long on Sunday. Last performance on the last night of the festival---what an auspicious ending. Reminds me why I can't bear the thought of attending Coachella.

  2. Concerning that last story. Zoophilia is not illegal. Beastiality however might be depending on state law. Zoo is the love for an animal in terms of romantic feelings and a sense of an emotional connection. Some zoos can have a relationship with an animal but feel no sexual attraction. I had a 28 year old zoo roommate even though he's never had sex with an animal. He wants a girlfriend who can accept this about him. He's had a couple girlfriends that were more accepting of that than the fact that he's bisexual.

  4. As somebody born and raised in Duluth, MN I couldn't be more pleased. The town is very "blue," incredibly Democratic, but mostly due to its' strong labor union roots. It's a different kind of "liberal" than most of you are accustomed.

    I suppose it will be a very, very tough fight. That being said, when Minnesota passes marriage equality (I think it will be within 8 years), it will all be a moot point!
