Alito

Though the democrats couldn't muster up enough courage among its members to really oppose this ideological right-winger, at least as Bill in Portland, Maine on the Kos declares, we still should celebrate those on the High Court who will defend our rights.

An excerpt...

SUPREME COURT JUSTICE JOHN... PAUL... STEVENS!!!!

[Wild...I mean frickin' WILD applause. A million Bic lighters suddenly come to life as the most massive fireworks display you've ever seen explodes overhead! Molly Ivins, E.J. Dionne and Paul Krugman throw candy to the crowd.]



SUPREME COURT JUSTICE DAVID... SOUTER!!!!

[Women wriggle their panties off and throw them on-stage. WILD applause as the Blue Angels roar overhead and a thousand children holding flashlights form a human `scales of justice.']



SUPREME COURT JUSTICE RUTH... BADER... GINSBURG!!!!

[Okay, this is getting insane. A team of Chippendales dancers hoists Ginsburg on a solid gold throne as a million voices sing in unison: We will, we will ROCK YOU!! Kenny G descends from the rafters to play a solo, but is carried off by security, thank god.]



SUPREME COURT JUSTICE STEPHEN... BREYER!!!!

[Shit! No...way! The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Coldplay, Green Day, Busta Rhymes, the Dixie Chicks and Kanye West team up for an insane performance of Street Fighting Man while a MASSIVE American flag unfurls. The roar of the crowd is heard in 6 states.]



SUPREME COURT JUSTICE ANTHONY... KENNEDY!!!!

Clap...C'clap. Clap. C'clap. Clap.

[Good lord. Sparklers. Speedo. Oh no...we told him three times: no clogging!]

The State of the Union

Well, a mockery of it, but so close to reality, I don't know whether to laugh or to cry.

Laugh, I guess.

Brokeback Mountain

Well, not really, but maybe one of the best parodies thereof.

Blatant Homophobia in the Daily Comics

from a friend...

Hello friends,Have you seen the L.A. Times comics the past few days? They're publishing a week of homophobic "Mallard Fillmore" strips by Bruce Tinsley. In it, a character proudly announces he realized he's homophobic, after being really grossed out by Brokeback Mountain. As is the strip's norm, this is presented without a shred of irony, humor or commentary, but rather plainly as the strip's own point of view. The third person narrator of the strip remains neutrally uncritical. (If you know the strip, you know Tinsley uses it not to create characters or situations, but to nakedly voice his personal opinions.) The emphasis is on his "coming out" as homophobic.

I sure doubt they'd publish a strip about proudly claiming one's racism and being disgusted by black folks. But today in Los Angeles, still a double standard.A friend at the Times assures me they do listen to criticism, especially when more people write to them. So PLEASE take a second now to jot a note saying what you think about their choice to publish this week's homophobic "Mallard Fillmore" strips.

Personally, I find it inexcusably offensive and disgusting.You can do any or all of the following:

1. Email a note to the LA Times Readers' Representative Office at: readers.rep@latimes.com (or call 877-554-4000; it can be as simple as one sentence)

2. Use the online form to drop a note to the LA Times Calendar Section Comments, at this link: http://www.latimes.com/services/site/la-comment-calendar,0,262413.htmlstory (click the top choice: "Calendar section of the Los Angeles Times newspaper")

3. Email a short letter to the Editor, at: letters@latimes.com (include your full name, address and phone number so they can contact you to verify you wrote it; of course it's kept confidential)

New Year

Let's hope it's a happier, healthier and more peaceful new year.

It couldn't be worse than what just passed, right?

As we say in yoga (and which translates to everthing, cornily, in my life): namaste.

I honor the light within you.

Peace be with you.
