    About the six LGBT characters on the last season of True Blood, I've come up with Lafayette, Tara, Pam, Russell and Steve. Who is the sixth?

  3. Has anyone noticed they're using more female spokespeople to say no to the gays when they ask for equality??...

  5. About the stem cell-to-egg story: So a man will soon be able to create an egg out of his own cells, which means we will be able to have children that are ours!! How exciting is that!

  6. Going after the Boy Scout of America's money is the way we win. We have to sink them one major donor at a time, all the while pushing stories of their bigotry on an every day basis -- which will dry up funds from the membership side (since it'll have fewer members).

  17. Thank you, UPS for the information. Although I am not a "Large" shipper of things, I will simply use some other shipper than UPS in the future. A "Buck" is still a Buck"; You just will not receive any more from me.
