offended anyone, because I was not in any way comparing gays with people
who engage in bestiality or sexual child abuse."

  1. Randy says

    Mr. Carson, apologies never include the word “if” and should focus on what YOU did, not how other people received it.

  2. UFFDA says

    I think Carson would fit under a bus just fine.

    On her father Robert Reed, daughter Susan Olson has scored a cautionary bullseye by putting her finger on exactly what the state of mind is in a man who cannot accept himself. That’s a service given Susan. Thank you.

    And that new transit center in SF…it’s awesome as only stoppers out archichitecture can be. It’s the human equivalent of geology: pyramids, cathedrals, bridges, cultural and (now) transit centers totally compete with mountains and sea for my dazzled stupefaction.

  3. UFFDA says

    Approps the recent news, when our heads start getting chopped off I hope they’ll spare Matt Bomer’s.

  4. Tim says

    Heaven forbid anyone say a word against gays. Of course it was open season not so long ago. Seasons change, and that one will return no doubt. Better toughen up fairies. Glaad won’t be able to keep up with it,

  5. Paul R says

    Why doesn’t the article about the SF transit building mention where exactly it will be?

  6. jpeckjr says

    Ms. Olsen’s tribute to Robert Reed is touching, worth reading via the link. However, I wish she had not written “being gay killed him.” Being gay didn’t make his life miserable. The overwhelming dispproval of being gay, which was the standard social attitude during his lifetime, made his life miserable.

    I had such a crush on Mike Brady! I remember wishing he would stop wearing pajama tops so I could see his chest.

  7. Paul R says

    Plenty of other people were gay during Robert Reed’s era, especially in Hollywood. Everyone knew about, say, Liberace, Rock Hudson, and Charles Nelson Reilley. Reed had some bigger issues.

  8. gr8guya says

    The video of the SF Transbay Terminal is an old version of the building. Since this was made, much “value engineering” has taken place. Gone: the tram from the sidewalk to the garden. Gone: the glass shell of the terminal replaced by a pierced metal screen.

    Instead of a light cloud of glass floating over the street, it looks a dark grey metal storm cloud.

    This interesting concept is going downhill faster than a cable car with broken brakes.

  9. Bill Michael says

    If I had the money, I would buy the Wounded Knee Massacre site and give it back to the Native Americans to which it rightfully belongs.

  10. UFFDA says

    Tim – your prediction that anti-gay bias will return (as if it has left us) is soooo scary, how did you get so smart? Believe me dude, this fairy’s tough enough to fight, but far more than that, smart enough to avoid it.

  11. greenfuzz says

    Unless he’s in dire straits the owner of the Wounded Knee land could give it to the tribe.

  12. terryp says

    Thank you Bill Michael, I would two. I think Wounded Knee is a sacred spot. I left my prayers & tears there many years ago. Americans should be ashamed.
