“We won’t have a faggot in our house.” Those are the words M heard after his mother died of cancer. He was 16. His mom had loved and accepted him. But not his aunt and uncle. They took in his little brother, but left M to fend for himself in the streets. M lived in a town in Florida that ...

Eric Leven of KnuckleCrack, guest blogging for JMG. Hell I’ve even said it a few times myself, or maybe just hoped it, “Yeah I don’t hear much about Meth anymore.

Would That Be BitingTheHandThatFedMe.org?

Bil Browning of The Bilerico Project here, guest blogging for JMG. Bob Dole has decided to let all hang out. The former presidential candidate made public an e-mail he sent to former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan after hearing details of McClellan’s new tell-all book.
