  2. I'm going to choose to believe that Kanye was testing Ellen to see if she'd call the video what it actually is. She went with the kind option. Wow! If that video was a genuine attempt at whatever it was supposed to be, Mr. West is in need of help.

  3. Wow, thanks for the study on big cities and gay tolerance. I really hope they spent on a lot on that, because those are really shocking findings that no one ever could have predicted based on common knowledge and sense.

  5. Just can not believe that such an incomplete story was written about the loving parents having their children ripped from them JUST because the father is transgendered!

    There is a reason that including WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, WHY and HOW are the very basic essentials in ANY news article!

    To start with WHO for pete's sake? No last name was even given of the couple only Daniel and Cindy. Daniel and Cindy who? Doubt if their parents stopped there for one them. Let alone the first middle and last name of the HORRIBLE grandparents. Not EVEN their first name is given to the people who are most likely responsible for this tragedy. Who are they? I want to see their full names, their telephone number, their address etc. Who is this discriminatory court that made this ridiculous custody decision? What idiot or idiots comprise this court? Who is this Bergen Finkelman that initially "reported" it? Is he an accredited reporter or just someone who sweeps the floor of the newsroom? Why is there no E-mail provided for more information.

    WHAT happened? No details at all are provided for this pseudo article? Did the police take the young twins? It says that child protective services were never called. Under what law was any sickening action EVEN taken? Can this be appealed? If so do it!

    There is no mention of WHEN this occurred is given? Was it 100 years ago? Last week? WHERE did this happen? Russia? A State of the union? The land of "A court rules everyone's life"?

    Perhaps the biggest question is WHY this happened. There is no excuse for this travesty of justice, so why?

    Finally HOW did this happen? Was there a gun battle? Were the children spirited off in the middle of the night?

    EVEN in the original article the photograph of one of the crying children tells more about then the article itself! This is just a piss poor story . . .
