RoadShould the Prop 8 lawyers have been paid six million dollars? "The $6.4 million price tag runs in contrast to many other legal fights mounted by the LGBT community. Much of such “impact litigation” is brought by nonprofit legal groups like Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders, which brought the case that one of its lawyers, Mary Bonauto, argued and led to marriage equality in Massachusetts. Other such litigation is brought by nonprofit groups working with outside private lawyers working without payment for their services — called pro bono — like Lambda Legal and Jenner & Block’s Paul Smith, who argued the 2003 case, Lawrence v. Texas, that ruled sodomy laws across the country unconstitutional. "

  2. looking at Mara Wilson's Imdb page, one would think she should do the sequel due to needing money

  3. I've been told by graduate students (over the years) that Gabriel Garcia Marquez's novel "100 Years of Solitude" is one of the greatest novels of all time. I could never get past the first couple of pages. I'm going to try again.

    I wish I could read it in Spanish. Everybody in the Western Hemisphere should be able to read Spanish (LOL...I couldn't resist it, right-wing b1tches LOL).

  5. You might want to try one of his other works first, Derrick; my favorite is "Chronicle of a Death Foretold".

  6. I started to read his novels in English and gave up. Then I realized I can read them in Spanish and enjoyed them much more.

  10. The Rover looks like an interesting film. I have been a fan of Guy Pierce since Priscilla Queen of the Desert, the only drag show I have ever enjoyed more than once, because it knows it's ridiculous.

  11. I couldn't say that Courtney Love tried to take credit for Art Pop. (Who would?) Per usual with her, it's hard to know what she's saying, but at least it's not snide or completely out there...

  12. re: A Final Journey
    My eyes are full of tears
    Being gay with a legal partner in Europe I am fortunate, being the much older, that our wishes will be fulfilled. For those who even believe they are safe, seemingly in the States (my native country) be careful. Good long time friends in a gay unfriendly State, together 35 years .... the older HAD to die at home otherwise his partner and lover could NOT be present.
    Bless these two....reps of gay repression! They are heroes!

  13. The lawyers should have done it as Pro Bono...showing they believe in LGBT rights....not just another "cash grab"....
