I’ve been flabbergasted by the desperate sub-mediocrity of the Republican presidential field.
So has the American electorate: Polls show Obama losing to a “generic” Republican candidate, but defeating any of the folk who’ve actually appeared at the Republican debates. And watching how quickly the frontrunner changes, how high each one soars and then crashes to earth, [...]
When I reviewed David Reubens’ vile, best-selling character assassination of gay people recently, I did find myself laughing at one choice bit:
The homosexual must constantly search for the one man, the one penis, the one experience, that will satisfy him. Tragically there is no possibility of satisfaction because the formula is wrong. One penis plus [...]
Gay men and our dogs.
Will and I are at a friend’s house in Palm Springs. Seven guys and six dogs. Those are the mutts Lucas and Chloe, and four purebred (we think) golden retrievers. Lucas is best frenemies with the golden lying next him. They wrestle constantly. Chloe is so much smaller than all [...]

This is powerful.
Start with this video of UC Davis Police Officer Lt. John Pike pepper spraying a group of seated students on the UC Davis campus. You only need watch a few seconds.
Now watch the students’ protest later. All they do is silently watch UC Davis Chancellor Linda Katehi walk to her car.
UPDATE: I [...]
Read the headline in a sing-song voice.
Someone came to my site through this link. All I can figure is that somebody tried to pass off one of my blog entries on their own. The teacher, obviously blown away by the extraordinary and edifying effects of my eloquent, er, eloquence, decided to check whether the student [...]
