  1. If I had to watch the Today show I'd kill myself too.

  3. It's odd that David Mixner would argue that critics of Christine Quinn are shrill, angry or hysterical without actually providing any examples of anyone being shrill, angry, or hysterical. He also makes the unfortunate argument that regardless of her policies on anything else, the fact she is a lesbian who (duh) supports LGBT issues means all gays have to vote for her or they are betraying their brethren. That asinine. By all means vote for her over an anti-gay candidate (Republican or otherwise), but when it comes to voting across a spectrum of candidates, all of whom are gay friendly, gays should not feel obligated to support her simply for being a lesbian. Particularly when there are genuine issues people should have with her and her brand of politics.

    The only hysteria here is voting for a gay because they are gay without at all considering the many other issues that matter to gay people and straight people alike.

  4. Savage's lit picks are pretty great. To them I'd add Ethan Mordden's "Buddies Cycle" of novels, which are truly incredible, and his epic american masterwork "How Long Has This Been Going On?"

    truly life-changing works.

  5. @Quintessential: THANK YOU. She's the worst kind of politician who made a deal with the devil because she was in the middle of a scandal that she should would hurt her chances when Nanny Bloomberg should have left office. Quinn is vindictive and rude. She has many more enemies than friends. Plus, she's about as charismatic as a toad.

  6. English is a good language. I apologize for not using it above. "middle of a scandal that she thought would hurt her chances. . . ."

  7. No harm intended but: Bevan Dufty dropping out of anything is an improvement. He's the least creative hack in town, seemingly has never had an original thought. I wish he'd drop out of public life.

  8. Don't pull out the "bullying" card until you have more proof. Bullying appears to cause everything these days. Think of the life she's had. She's just been reunited with her birth mother--no delicate flower.

    David Mixter is probably upset about Esther Williams Christine Quinn strikes me as an opportunist. Elaine Nobel was genuine.

    Love the idea of Carey Mulligan playing Hillary. I wonder what they will do to her appearance?

  9. Dan Savage's "It Gets Better" campaign assumed that everyone Gay had a miserable existence, prior to it "getting better." Ultimately it became more about who contributed their story. He obviously struck a cord, it became a BandAid for some. Being a part of it certainly had to boost the egos of the participants. What simpler way to help others than by talking about yourself? We need a sequel: "It Gets Better and Better!" or "What Really Happened To The Better Crowd?" "My Inner Bully" I honestly await, "The Gay Marriage Hoax" That one must be made into a movie.
