RoadRep. Steve King (R-IA): Same-sex marriage part of push for socialism.


RoadUN to get visit from WBC.

RoadDreamWorks and Showtime to chronicle development of a Broadway musical, from inception to opening night: "Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who are well versed in adapting tuners for the big- and smallscreen, are in negotiations to join the project, as are tunesmiths Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman. DreamWorks TV toppers Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank are shepherding the project with Spielberg."

RoadTwo popular gay venues in Sydney to close — The Midnight Shift and The Flinders Hotel.

RoadAfterElton talks to Modern Family's gay dads, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet.

RoadJoy Behar to Ukraine: Let Elton adopt. "Mr. Pavlenko, here are some tips about family, youth and sports. Family doesn't mean a huddle of orphans sharing a few soiled mattresses, it's not youth if you die of AIDS before you reach kindergarten, and wrestling over dinner scraps is not a sport. But that could be Lev's fate now, because the Ukrainian government said Elton and his beau David Furnish are too old to adopt the boy. It sounds like the real reason is they're too gay."

RoadNeil Patrick Harris lights up for new photo shoot.

RoadOrange County Board of Education opposes 'Harvey Milk Day': "The addition of commemorative exercises reduces important classroom time in core subject areas. Instructional time is at a premium and students cannot afford to lose quality educational time."

RoadTom Ford seeks $50 million investment.

RoadMan gets life sentence for gang rape and murder of South African lesbian track star Eudy Simelane: "Ms Simelane was approached after leaving a pub and robbed of her mobile, trainers and cash. She died from wounds to the abdomen after being gang raped and stabbed 12 times. Her naked body was dragged towards a stream and dumped." Two others were acquitted.


RoadBoston Red Sox rookies hazed in drag.

Road70th anniversary: The history and promises behind The Wizard of Oz. "What's also rather striking, especially considering its suffragette heritage, is the way the film and Garland became such an iconic part of the gay movement. I'm not going to pretend that I know very much about the current iconography within the gay and lesbian community, but I know that the film used to represent acceptance and a fervent belief that things could (and would) be better."

RoadJohn Travolta takes the stand in extortion trial.

RoadTrial underway for gay Salt Lake City man beaten by his neighbors after removing their children from a rowdy party they were having: "She claimed the children were in and out of Latu's home during the party and said the parents were guilty of child neglect. 'No one was supervising these kids,' Gustin told jurors. She suggested that when Latu found her daughter and nephew missing, 'she needed someone to blame' and picked Bell. Bell was dragged from his home by his then-shoulder length hair and his head was repeatedly smashed against the pavement, Gustin said. Blood was oozing from his right ear and he still suffers hearing loss, she said. Someone used a piece of broken glass to cut Bell's throat, chest and one of his toes. Bell's partner, Fair, also was beaten, and a large TV was thrown onto his head."

  1. "But Judge Paul Maughan may allow the jury to hear details of the parents' past criminal records -- including burglary, robbery and assault on a police officer -- which the defense claims predisposed them to react violently."

    In addition, Vini and Lulu Latu are Mormons:

  4. Is there something wrong with me that I find WBC sort of cute and endearing??

  5. Cross Neil Patrick Harris off the hot/attractive/sexy list, and put him on the skank list. There are few things more unattractive to me (and millions and millions of others) than smoking.

    It's like having a tattoo on your forehead that says, "I'm a self-destructive, active addict who smells (and tastes) bad."

    I was really hoping the words "lights up" in the link didn't have the meaning I was fearing. But they did.

  6. PRO-HEALTH: What are you, 12? Did you just have a topic on cigarettes in health class?

    FWIW, I don't even believe NPH smokes. It was most likely a prop, but then you can go ahead and rail against people glamorizing it.

    But the fact is, just as it is unattractive to you (and millions and millions of others), it's very attractive to me (and millions and millions of others) for a variety of reasons.

    The funny thing is, being a smoker is like being in a different closet. It's amazing how many people I meet when I'm hanging out outside with my smoking friends. People hide it well and it's an excellent way in the model/porn/acting community to cut your weight when need be.

    Smokers are hot. So are non-smokers. Smokers turn me on when they light up a cigarette. Non-smokers turn me on when they bound up a flight of stairs without getting winded. But there's not much more unattractive than being a soapbox stomper like yourself.

  7. joy behar is the voice of reason on "the view". sherry shepard's brain has atrophied due to christolitis. babwa wawa is busy being a smarmy, fake, self-depreciating living legend. whoopi is a self-cherishing, big mama, magical negress who can solve everyone's problems with her wordly-wise insight. she schleps (she's jewish, right?) her fat ass onto the stage wearing clothes that one might wear to do yard work and delusionally thinks she's a beautiful nubian princess. i like her politics and babwa's as well, i just deplore self-importance. as to elizabeth... what can one say? joy behar is the only real person there.

  10. Pro-Heath: I'm impressed with your rationalizations. Perhaps they are comforting as you kill yourself. I offer another cognitive trick to help you become more comfortable with smoking: The estimate that 400,000 Americans die from smoking-caused illnesses every year is a hoax (like climate change or the Holocaust). And lung cancer and chemotherapy are really not that bad -- they feel like really mild colds. Ditto emphysema. Women who may be pregnant have nothing to fear either. All that smoking is bad for you stuff is just totally blown out of proportion! Just like the dangers of barebacking.

    --- "an excellent way in the model/porn/acting community to cut your weight when need be." --- Helpful hint from Heloise! OK, I am not usually this sarcastic, but this is preposterous. Crack or meth can help members of "the model/porn/acting community" lose weight faster, no? Why not try some good old fashioned bulimia, for that matter? How about contracting some kind of wasting illness (that is, before the cancer hits)? Just in time for a gig of strutting down the runway and/or rimming for the camera and/or performing Shakespeare.

    Silly. Tragically silly.

    Call me an earnest 12-year old (not a bad thing to be necessarily), but, seriously, you'd be much better off not rationalizing something you probably know, deep down, is stupid as hell. It's obviously difficult to quit, but if you succeed, I'd guess the rest of your life will be much better, as well as longer. Good luck in the choices you make.
