  1. Can somebody please explain to me why Kellan Lutz is so heavily featured here? I don't consider him particularly remarkable in looks or talent yet everyday there's some mention of him. Kellan Lutz eats cereal for breakfast. Kellan Lutz breathes same air as average person. Kellan Lutz wipes front to back. Blah! And you think Gaga gets too much pixel time at Towleroad. At least her stories are "interesting" (for better or worse).

  2. 1. Same sex "marriage" id against the law in GB, too, so use of the term undercuts those who are fighting there for full equality.

    2. While understanding her caution while working for President Carter and his sexist, homophobic gang of Southern not-so “good ole boys,” I remain very disappointed that the marvelous Midge Costanzadid not later come out publicly, as I do regarding Barbara Jordan.

    Still, what she contributed is undeniable, and I will always treasure her kindness, ribald sense of humor, and the photos taken with her at the White House in 1977 when she invited my roommate Leonard Matlovich for a private tour, and he took me with him. And will always be grateful for her creating the situation from which came one of the few personal photos I have of him.

    Rest in peace.

    I don't agree and apparently neither does Andy. If you don't like items about Kellan SKIP them. No one is forcing you to read them.

    And no, there can not be enough Lady GaGa.

  5. @ Vince -- I do skip over them. But it's kind of hard not to notice the name repeatedly showing up in these multiple article posts. AND the fact that his picture is often posted without comment. You know...Kellan sweating while walking upright like a human. But far be it from me to keep you from your stroke material. I say if there's going to be meat heads featured at least switch it up.

  6. Pioneer Midge Costanza gets three short sentences in a lengthy round-up?! Have you no sense of proportion? Or of history? Now would be an appropriate time to quote Vice President Biden to describe Midge. At least you made room for a photo.
