"More than 200 students gathered at the northeast corner of Lincoln High School's campus Tuesday afternoon to counter a protest by about a half-dozen anti-gay pickets from a controversial Kansas church. Zach Toillion, a Lincoln senior, used the social networking Web site Facebook to urge students to protest across from the pickets, who stood along Southwest Ninth Street. The students carried signs that read 'God loves all' and 'unity' and cheered at honking cars."

    Re: the Kindle; why would anyone want to carry around a letter-sized aluminum sheet to read the paper when the same news is already available on thousands of diff. sources on a mobile phone (BB or iPhone) a quarter the size? I don't get it.

  8. Alekseev has apparently forgotten that Slava Mogutin and Robert Filippini attempted to register their marriage in Moscow in 1994!

  15. Paul, I'm very unimpressed by your comment. It is full of embarrassing Republican/right wing talking points that are mostly wrong. Come back with the truth and then we can have a discussion of Obama's first 100 days.

    Posted by: Ed | May 7, 2009 12:18:20 AM


  16. Sorry last comment was in the wrong thread.

    Posted by: Ed | May 7, 2009 12:19:36 AM


  17. @Ed - would you care to direct me to a place where I used Republican/right wing talking points that are mostly wrong since you make that claim?

    I'm just curious because it seems that anything outside of calling for Carrie Prejean's disembowelment and implementation of a ban on all criticism of Obama's anti-gay stance is considered extreme right wing hate speech around here.

  18. *Rolls eyes* back at DJ for *rolling eyes*. Because we're 12 years old and all.
