If you could just tell people not to eat so darn much.”

It expresses a deep yearning by Americans to return to the foundations upon which this great nation was built. While I don’t personally agree with the political beliefs that underlay Mr. Hughes’ poetry, I celebrate the vibrant diversity of this great nation, which not only made his writing possible but also leaves room for my disagreement…And whatever you do, don’t Google my name.”

If there’s some way I could keep the ball rolling with that and encourage other schools around the country, that would be really rewarding.”

    But, what? Madonna going from what powerful fad to another…powerful group?

    Hmmm….

    I wonder how gay friendly she will be getting with these guys in her old age…..

    Logan McCree has beautiful eyes. I wonder do people (also us here) think porn stars have sex and nothing else when they are not working? I would like to have a guy looking like LMC living next to me.

    Dear Logan,

    There is some beautiful, hilly, bucolic country surrounding Madison, Wisconsin that would be perfect for your new home. Madison’s easy access to Chicago would ensure that your career wouldn’t be adversely affected by your living in a rural setting. And you may fall in love with the cheese curds. Call me. I’ll take you on a guided tour of America’s Dairyland (TM).

    Love and Hugs,

    Brian.

    According to the linked article, Logan McCree also wanted to open a “massage parlor”. That, combined with his profession, is relevant here IMHO. Keep in mind he wants to move to a village in the Highlands not Provincetown.

  5. NVTodd says

    Sorry, Logan, but people in a rural village have a right to decide if they want a “massage salon” run by a pornographer there.

    It’s about respect, people. Have a little, and a little integrity. This isn’t even a gay issue.

    Have to disagree with those who think it’s relevant that a gay porn actor wants to open a massage parlor there. If he is going for a legitimate business, and not sex shop, then he has every right.

    I’m not sure of the local laws, but I know of none that say making porn is illegal and if he does not plan on shooting porn or offering sex for money, he has the same rights that a straight person would have.

    I used to be all about Prince William. Lately, I am much more smitten with Harry. He is getting hotter and hotter with age.

    Seeing the twins looking happy, smiling, and apparently well-adjusted must be upsetting to all the people who say a same-gender couple can’t make good parents, that the children will be traumatized. Good. I like it when those people are upset.

  9. foobar says

    What horrible countries do you people live in where townsfolk get to decide who can move in and what businesses are allowed to open?

  10. says

    I’m saddened that the SNP (Scottish National Party) MP is supporting the townspeople in their ignorant bigotry. I know the SNP at least used to be progressive.

  11. just_a_guy says

    Big ups to the Bowdoin coach and Lacrosse player. It’s not a major headline…but maybe it should be. These apparently little things add up to a lot.

  12. Mike Burton says

    Good for you SNP Councillor and village residents. You most certainly have every right to refuse his request and keep that kind of filth and trash out of your community. What a pity we can’t do this in the U.S.
