Watching The Defectives

Gentle readers, I’m rerunning my annual Pride rant for the fourth year. I wrote this post in 2005 a couple of days after attending Pride here in NYC.

Obama Gaining Clintonites, But Loons Abound

Steve Ralls at Huffington Post reports on the latest poll of Hillary supporters. A poll released this afternoon, examining the seemingly ever-shifting loyalties of Senator Hillary Clinton’s presidential supporters (of which I have been an enthusiastic one), finds that, while 53% of Clinton’s backers are now firmly on-board with Senator Barack Obama’s White House bid, there are some who are ...

UPDATE: For those of you questioning the possibly homophobic intent of the clip’s makers, here is a comment they made on YouTube: “Actually you must have missed the satirical commentary on how we view gay relationships in this country.

Kindle’s Killer App?

Could textbooks be Kindle’s killer app? I sure would have loved not to have to lug around a giant pile of over-sized textbooks. To say nothing of the their outrageous prices and the bother of selling them at the end of the term. On the other hand, I’m not so sure I’d be able to get a handle on flipping ...
