The local legislature sent the measure to committees for consideration Tuesday. No date was set for a vote."

  1. obviously, that Details cover is just begging for a photoshopped "r" to be inserted in the Mayer headline.

  2. Am I missing something? Why is there a picture of Nicholas Hoult from Skins posted? I didn't see one mention of him in the briefs.

  5. Thank you, Andy, for posting the NPR-Sharlet thread. Now we know who truly owns Obama & why he has double crossed each & every one of the Dem Party's core base groups.

  6. Lautner is 17!

  7. If Lautner was gay, I think there'd need to be some pre-teen girls on suicide watch.

  9. Re: The $50 million verdict. In the amazingly detailed linked article about sex club owner Bob DeBenedictis, there is no mention of the fact that he, along with West Side Club co-owner Paul Gallucio, are also the long time owners of The Townhouse bar and the former Townhouse Restaurant.

  10. Well, I now know what hanky I should wear if I like uncut Brazilian men, but what color do I choose for a sci-fan fanboy? Left or right for Sith or Jedi?

  11. Yeah, Taylor's most likely gay. I was wondering when someone else's gaydar would pick up on this.

    Hopefully he will be able to come out sooner rather than later.
