But what if that lifestyle includes global warming denial?

Therapists urged not to change gay lifestyle. And I agree -nothing wrong with a Nancy boy shrink and he shouldn’t change a thing. But this same group saying “do nothing” announced last week that denying global warming was a sign of mental illness. Somehow, I have a suspicion that the American Society of Psychologists is more about politics than psychology. Somehow.

How to lose friends and fail to influence people

President of MADD denounces Obama for “Beer Summit”.  The man was enjoying a beer in his backyard and is unlikely to drive a car himself for at least four and possibly eight more years, so where is MADD’s place in this discussion?  MADD achieved its goal of strengthening drunk driving laws – not that that prevented the Taconic Parkway massacre – and now has morphed into a temperance movement. Call it mission creep or an organization without a cause, this sort of nonsense only serves to make MADD look – well, mad.

The trouble with kids today

Officer Friendly says, "please don't touch!"

Officer Friendly says, "please don't touch!"

This speed gizmo has been parked up the street from me for over a week and it’s still there today, even though it’s the dead of  summer and the most boring nights of the year are upon us. What the heck are our local boys up to? Back in my days as a teenaged moron, my friends and I would have hit this thing the first night it was placed there, towed it to police headquarters and left it in a patrol car’s parking space. Is today’s generation too well-behaved to succumb to this invitation? Busy cramming for their SATs? Coked out and in a stupor on their parent’s living room couch?  Whatever the reason, it doesn’t speak well for their initiative.

Now it can be told

The Rove house at 6 Gilliam Lane is gone. That’s right, Carl Rove, evil-doer of the Bush regime, was living quietly and anonymously here in Riverside during all those years of the Bush machine’s machinations and plotting, directing world-wide evil from his paneled library, all while posing as a mild-mannered geologist. But he’s moved on and national security demanded that he take the house’s secrets with him. Staff photographer Edgar Martins, braving all, snuck onto the site to take this picture.
