Drag queen murder in Kentucky met “with wall of silence.” Rosalynd Blair, the victim’s mother, is now suing the Louisville Police Department: “Blair believes her son’s killing was a hate crime but police disagree. They say they believe the Timothy knew his killer. But despite a number of tips no one has been brought to justice. To make matters worse, said Blair, she was told by the coroner she could not see her son. Blair says she has been doing her own investigation and believes she knows who the killer is, but she says police won’t talk to her.”

Advertising Age wishes death on Ann Coulter: “Would it kill you, ‘Godless’ author Ann Coulter, to do us all a favor and kill yourself? (Oh, well, yeah, I guess it would kill you.) After her recent rabidly hateful, foaming-at-the-mouth, sub-human ‘Today’ show appearance — in which she reiterated her assertion that 9/11 widows are “enjoying their husband’s deaths” — even her former supporters began to fantasize about how much nicer the world would be if it were Coulterless.”
Karl Rove safe from indictment, says lawyer: “We believe the special counsel’s decision should put an end to the baseless speculation about Mr. Rove’s conduct.” DNC Chair Howard Dean was quick to react on Today: “If Karl Rove had been indicted it would have been for perjury. That does not excuse his real sin which is leaking the name of an intelligence operative during the time of war. He doesn’t belong in the White House. If the President valued America more than he valued his connection to Karl Rove, then Karl Rove would have been fired a long time ago. So I think this is probably good news for the White House, but its not very good news for America.”
A federal judge heard arguments Monday that Georgia’s White County discriminated against a gay-straight alliance. The suit, brought by the ACLU and student Kerry Pacer, contends that while the school board voted to not allow any extra-curricular clubs because of controversy over the gay-straight alliance, “other clubs did meet and morning announcements about the meetings were made on the high school’s public address system.”

At L.A. Reid’s 50th birthday party at Nobu 57, Star Jones told Page Six she’s tired of all the talk about hubby Al Reynolds: “I don’t care what people say about me – I have made some mistakes – but they shouldn’t talk about Al. He is the kindest, most loving man, and our relationship is so strong and sacred. I can’t believe people would think otherwise.”
