  1. Australia is just burning up. Every spring their fires, and then our fires are getting bigger and bigger and worse and worse. Oh, thats right I forgot climate change isn't real. Actually it is real and its getting MUCH worse. How much longer before the world acts???

  2. Good question Tom. Unfortunately, the news is focused on the climate deniers who actively pursue the headlines, rather then on the climate itself . . .

  3. what an astounding surprise that right-wingers have multiple internet aliases with which they spread their misinformation.

    just like resentful-homosexual eunuchs have multiple sock-puppets which they use to trumpet their own brand of idiocy.

    quel freakin' surprise.

    Fox News is a cancer in the USA, making people stupid and angry and hateful.

  4. Gay sports leagues are hardly new. Was the author of that article in a coma the last 20 years?

  6. @Crispy: are you STILL in your coma? You seem unaware that what goes on in the two coasts of the US is not what goes on in most of the world.

  7. Uh, the article is about the US, so "most of the world" is not even remotely relevant. And further, the article is actually ABOUT major cities including those on the two coasts. The blurb cited here on Towleroad even mentions New York and San Francisco.

    Ya know, it actually helps if you read the article before you comment.

  8. Well, that's a first. I've never seen "Things That Matter" and "Charles Krauthammer's Writings" in the same sentence before this.

    It's no surprise that this prissy, dried-up hack mis-named his book--he's been wrong about pretty much everything else for the last 50 or 60 years.

  9. You nailed it Kiwi. Could it be that Rick, with his misogynistic and anti-trans* bullcrap, is actually Rupert Murdoch?

    S'up, Rupes? Close to death, yet?
