Dear Clint McCance: STFU – a REAL Message of Hope


If you haven’t heard the story, a Midland, AR school board member recently said on his Facebook page (allegedly. The account has either been removed or made completely private) that “fags” should die. Responding to “Spirit Day” (a movement I was also against, though for very different reasons), Clint McCance posted a giant screed including … Continue reading

Red Eye: God Hates Total Bastards


After last night’s heated – but fruitful – Twitter debate over the TN house fire, I promised to write a silly post. Sorry, but it turns out I lied. It’s time to tell a little story. As many of you know, I am teh ghey. For years, I’ve lived by myself. I’ve had relationships on … Continue reading

My Last Word on the Ground Zero Mosque


The whole Ground Zero Mosque kerfuffle will continue for quite some time. Until it’s built, and long after, I suspect. However, I find there is only so much one can say about it. I will continue to lend my support to those opposed to the mosque on philosophical and moral grounds. If it’s pertinent, I … Continue reading

Reporters Without Borders Condems WikiLeaks … Sort Of


By now, everyone has heard of Julian Assange, the contemptible world traveler who has made it his goal in life to publish dubiously secured documents to the Internet, often edited and without context.

Separation of Church and State, Garofalo Style

God Bless America

Self-styled intellectual, Janeane Garofalo, has struck again, giving an interview to the A.V. Club recently. I’m not going to bother dissecting her idiotic ramblings; they pretty much speak for themselves. Also, AWR Hawkins already did it on BigJournalism.com. Instead, I’m going to address just one statement, because Garofalo makes the same mistake many self-styled progressives … Continue reading

The Politically Correct Conundrum


First off, let me start out by saying Helen Thomas’ recent statements about Jews in Israel went far beyond what I consider “politically incorrect.” But  Thomas’ statement does open a dialogue on an important issue. More than one, actually. To read what I consider the most insightful point of view on the Thomas scandal, please … Continue reading

Freedom of the Press Threatened Yet Again

Bill of Rights

In April, a New Jersey appellate court ruled that a blogger posting information about a software pornography company wasn’t covered by the state’s Shield Law, which protects journalists from having to revel their sources, among other things.
