New York Doesn't Smell Like Ass

And New Yorkers are perplexed.

Sing along if you know the words...I love New York...

Brown Humor in Red States

Well, not really. But, according to Atrios, The Onion was chastised for using the Presidential Seal in a story and, well, this is their decidedly undiplomatic response.

I guess The Onion can throw mud with the best of them.

Rosa Parks

Sarah Vowell on Ms. Rosa Parks.

Rosa Parks

God bless her soul. Proof that one person can make a difference. Speak out against injustice. A just voice will be hear and joined. Ms. Parks proved it.

Have You Seen a Celebrity?

Kyle's started a site. Why don't you play along?

Or perhaps, you'd rather talk about douchebags. Well, you can do that, too.

JibJab takes a jab. You can save a little money in the short term and shop there or save a lotta money in the longterm and shop local.

Jeff is Cool

No, really.

Happy National Coming Out Day

Now, I'm not a big proponent of outing people with one exception: outing people who are actively trying to squash glbt civil rights. So, in honor of the day, meet these prominent gay republicans.

I wonder how they rationalize their actions. It's sad really.

Greensboro, NC

Just got back from Greensboro and not much can be said for this quaint little town. Well, it does have the historic Woolworth's where in the 1950s, brave activists sat down at the food counter and protested their policy of discrimination. It's said that this is one of the most important events of the Civil Rights Movement. I don't know if it's really one of the most important, but it certainly was important. In any case, it's all boarded up now and its windows contain blown up black and white pictures of seminal moments in the Civil Rights Movement.

Other than that, though, Greensboro has a nice college campus, a lot of churches, one gay bar (in the warehouse district, which no sane person would take a cab to or from) and the sidewalks pretty much roll up after dark, except on the weekends.

Also had a couple good pubs on Elm Street or just off it, but the bbq was absolutely horrendous. Ate at Stamies, across the the Greensboro Bowl, and it was like a scene from a David Lynch movie -- very very odd people dotted around and a waitress serving tasteless, cold shredded pork on paper plates. Gimme The Salt Lick any day!
