Weekly Standard defends military gay ban: "Another way to put this is to say that honor, which is by the testimony
of soldiers throughout the ages of the essence of military service,
includes the honor of being known for heterosexuality, and that, for
most heterosexual males, shame attends a reputation as much for
homosexuality as for weakness or cowardice."

Paul Hogarth: Defeating Question 1 in Maine about mobilizing the base. "If every Mainer votes in the upcoming election, Question One will lose
– and conservatives who’ve won on 'gay marriage' in every state where
it has been on the ballot will suffer a humiliating defeat. But this is

Portland are with us, I have gotten this apathetic shrug from people –

Trial starts for Alabama judge accused of sex-for-leniency trades: "The respected circuit judge once was the Democratic Party's choice to be the first black federal judge in south Alabama. Then

of sexually abusing male inmates in exchange for leniency. The trial on
charges of sodomy, kidnapping, sex abuse, extortion, assault and ethics
violations is set to start Monday."
