RoadFAA updates medical requirements for trans pilots: “They’re very risk adverse; they make people jump through a lot of hoops,” Tobin said. “They’re different from a lot of professions in that way. But what’s been different for a lot of trans pilots is the hoops that they’ve been asked to jump through have been even more burdensome than what most people have to go through. And in a lot of cases, they’ve had no real rational connection to anything really related to a person’s transition.”

  2. STAY THE F OUT OF BALTIMORE..EVERYBODY. The city is an uber violent ghetto. Even the arae around Johns Hopkins isn't safe!

  3. Yeah, I was about to say. Here's a little tip about Baltimore. At 4am in the morning, you probably want to be in your locked house or hotel room.

  4. It is really important to sign that NCLR petition to ban ex-gay therapy on CA youth. This is the first law of its kind in the world.
    If we can do it in CA, we can do it in NY, MA, WA, etc...

  5. Brunch with Ann Coulter? Seriously, I would be gagging so hard I couldn't take a bite, much less actually keep the food down!

  6. NYT article should be "Which openly gay AMERICAN comic is going to have an AMERCIAN breakthrough"

    Honestly gay comedians - stand up and otherwise are so mainstream elsewhere and have been for years. If you're in the UK there are episodes of some panel shows where there are more gay comedians than straight. And an astonishing number of openly gay hosts drawn from stand-up roots across the board. Their live shows at home and abroad draw huge audiences.

  8. Note to Ms. Jones, being gay is not one's "personal life".

  9. I tip my hat to Ontario legislators and the brave young students in the ontario catholic schoolboard who are doing the right thing and DEMANDING to have Gay-Straight Alliances, and demanding they get to CALL them that. They're shining young vanguards, who are the actual ones working to change an archaic system and institution from the inside.

    The students want the alliances. And they got 'em.

    Well met!

  10. Actually Ratbastard, I've lived in Baltimore for over 15 years and have never had an incident of crime. And I live right by Johns Hopkins (campus, not hospital). Yes, Baltimore has crime but statistics show that 82 percent of those murdered had a criminal record and 70 percent are involved in drugs. If you are neither one of those groups, you are just as likely to be murdered as in any metro city. Maybe you should stop getting your info from fictional TV shows.

  11. @Greg,

    I didn't get my info from 'fictional TV'. Yes, Baltimore is a DANGEROUS city, with a VERY HIGH violent crime rate, including the area around Johns Hopkins. Likewise, Washington DC is also a VERY DANGEROUS city for violent crime. And Greg, I'm familiar and have been to both on multiple occasions, and have friends and family who live in DC and Maryland.

  12. And Greg,

    Baltimore is no more dangerous than any other major metro area? BS, Greg. Boston, a city around the same size as Baltimore or DC, and with a metro area larger than Baltimore alone, has a much lower crime rate, especially homicides. That's just one example.

    =============

    I assume you were referring to The Wire? I've seen a few episodes, excellent for a TV show.

  13. At first I thought maybe Chelsea could be our first female president - but we shouldn't have to wait that long! Better yet, maybe her Mom will be first - and Chelsea will follow! There's a lot of smarts in that family!
