  1. Ten bucks says he gets picked up within the next 5 years for having a "wide stance" in a public toilet.

  2. Wow, Ratbastard is slipping: I was sure he'd be all over this by now, spouting his racist drivel. Like a moth to the flame!

  3. The Ironbound is a mostly Portuguese-American and Brazilian- American section of Newark. It is the most gay friendly of the city not because it's progressive, but rather because it is the safest part of town. Sad to see incidents like this happening in what should be a safe place for gays in Newark.
