 road Why Jerry Brown thinks you should vote for him: My record is that of a pioneer. I appointed the first gay and lesbian judges in California and to the [University of California] board of regents. This was pioneering in the '70s. I signed the first nondiscrimination act…so I’m very proud of that. I don’t know what Ms. Whitman’s record is, but I’m a person who’s inclusive, who’s open to the diversity of California. And that will certainly be the spirit of my governorship.

Christwire  road is like The Onion if it focused only on conservative topics. The NYT Times reports that is "one big joke" but "Not the readership — which hit a high of 27 million page views in August — but the content, the opinions and the fake authors who write the stuff. Neither of the two founders is a conservative Christian. They are just like-minded 28-year-olds who met on the Internet, have never seen each other in person, and until this week had never given their real identities to a reporter."

    “Those in the US will no longer be able to access the “adult services” section on Craigslist.”

    So many rules in the land of the free.

  2. Joe says

    I’m not sure I understand all the facts of the Nebraska case.

    Why was a straight guy hitting on a woman in a gay bar? And was his friend, the 19 year old, gay or did they just decide that their chances would be better to pick up women in a gay bar?

    And, what type of slurs did he yell. I wish they would be more specific. I’d also like to know how intoxicated he was.

    Not that I’m giving him a pass at all, the story just feels so incomplete.

    Which won’t be stopped at all by this mindless action, “Name:”.

    It would probably be even easier to monitor …

    But what has traffic in teenage girls to do with my freedom to hire a masseur who provides release?

  5. TANK says

    Even if it won’t be stopped, one less venue for the sexual exploitation of minors is to be preferred. And craigslist justifiably doesn’t want to participate in it.

    But it’s sad when “legitimate” whores can’t advertise their product. So sad…when whores don’t get paid or lose business.
