RoadLouis Marinelli: NOM exploits racial opposition to same-sex marriage. "NOM is in the business of promoting non-white Americans that oppose marriage equality. It’s good for their image if they can present an illusion of broad interracial opposition to same-sex marriage. Of course this isn’t something at they do openly but it is certainly a strategy well-known to those within their circle. I was one of them and I have e-mail correspondence from the summer bus tour that demonstrates their fixation on exploiting blacks who showed up at the rallies as part of NOM’s public relations strategy. Look for them to do this with the Hispanics in the Bronx on the 15th."

    re: NPH. Is that a cell phone in your pocket or are you just glad to see me? Seriously, tho, this is why I don’t want to be famous. Can a person move into a house without being bothered? Moving is nothing but a hassle-and-a-half without being photographed. This is especially true because of his children.

    Regarding Dorian Gray…I always felt the 1945 movie about Dorian Gray was extremely gay with a story line depicting Gray as being young, handsome and morally corrupt. George Sanders character was Dorian’s friend,Lord Henry Wotton, but he went out of his way to hurt Dorian hetero love affair with Sibyl Vane(played by an 18 year Angela Lansberry). The actor’s name who played Dorian Gray was Hurd Hatfield, he was the early version Hollywood pretty boy type like Tab Hunter,Troy Donahue,or Rock Hudson. There are some great lines in the movie” Dorian was asked by Lord Wotton, who asked Dorian What are you? Dorian Gray: I am what “you” made me! I lived the life that you preached… but never dared practice. Another quote”How sad it is! I shall grow old, and horrid, and dreadful. But this picture will remain always young. It will never be older than this particular day of June…If it was only the other way! If it was I who were to be always young, and the picture that were to grow old! For this,for this,I would give everything! Yes, there is nothing in the whole world I would not give!” and the one scene that tickled me “Scotland Yard still insists that the man in the grey ulster who left for Paris by the midnight train on the ninth of November was poor Basil, and the French police declare that Basil never arrived in Paris at all. I suppose in about a fortnight we shall be told that he has been seen in San Francisco. It is an odd thing, but every one who disappears is said to be seen at San Francisco. It must be a delightful city, and possess all the attractions of the next world.” I found that to be true when I arrived in San Francisco to start the 1960’s. And my favorite line “Young men want to be faithful, and are not; old men want to be faithless, and cannot.”

    Artist Ivan Albright, was the painter of the old grotesque “Dorian” painting used in the movie,and is part of the Chicago Art Institute’s Albright collection. He was my favorite painter of my youth and now.
