Damnit I Missed It Again

Shuttle Endeavour Lands At California Air Base
Space shuttle Endeavour landed safely Sunday afternoon at California's Edwards Air Force Base after NASA waved off two opportunities for a Florida landing because of poor weather.
The shuttle landed at 1:25 p.m., ending a mission that lasted more than two weeks.

Hey, it's never too late to test the DNA.

New genetic test asks -- and answers -- which sport a child -- or old man -- was born to play
BOULDER, Colorado: When Donna Campiglia learned recently that a genetic test might be able to determine which sports suit the talents of her 2 ½-year-old son, Noah, she instantly said, Where can I get it and how much does it cost?
"I could see how some people might think the test would pigeonhole your child into doing fewer sports or being exposed to fewer things, but I still think it's good to match them with the right activity," Campiglia, 36, said as she watched a toddler class at Boulder Indoor Soccer in which Noah struggled to take direction from the coach between juice and potty breaks.

ARKANSAS earthquakes could be warning
By JON GAMBRELL – 1 day ago
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — A series of small earthquakes that rattled central Arkansas in recent weeks could be a sign of something much bigger to come.

No word on iminent danger to the Clinton Presidential "Library" or its current exhibit on The Art Of The Chopper:









PS. I've lived in LaLaLand for 13+ years this time and have felt, known, experienced my share of the earth shakiness out here. But, the biggest earthquake I ever felt was in Champaign, Ill, sometime in '87 or '88 or '89 -- dunno, I'd have to look it up. That quaker wakened me from an afternoon nap -- not an easy thing to do, that, awaken me after a full shift of real work. That New Madrid Seismic Zone is not one to shrug off, to ignore, to minimize, to pooh pooh like we know, know better, know truer quaking reality out here on the San Andreas Fault than they're going to know there again on the New Madrid; cos yeah, we know enough, but we don't know more .... except perhaps how to prepare and how to build for the quakers.

Chivalry's Not Dead

But the chivalrous two at Toys R Us are dead, apparently shooting each other while stepping up to defend their ladyskanks:
Witnesses: Fatal shooting followed toy store brawl
Unlike at the WalMart trampling, this began personal, skank shopper to skank shopper, and ended personal, with two warm corpses.
And we can all be relieved that our authorities say the shooting wasn't related to the bargain-hunting frenzy of the black day. These chulos shooting each other is an entirely separate frenzy. Though some are saying two for the price of one is indeed a bargain.
The gangbanger skank fight? Ray Turner, 20, quoted as a witness, though apparently not an eye witness says: "You really couldn't see nothing because there was a crowd,"
Thanks, Ray, for your vivid if illiterate recollection. Musta been traumatic over there in aisle seven. And thanks, Gillian Flaccus, AP writer, for including Ray's astute observation.
Me? I didn't shop yesterday, so like Ray, I really couldn't see nothing neither.
I'm just pleased so many participate in the economy while still others help decrease the surplus population. This day's gotta be an early indicator of some of that change we all be waiting for.

Staff emerge as heroes in Mumbai hotel sieges

Recovering from the initial shock and chaos, hotel staff shepherded the guests, including the Mangeshikar family, through the service section upstairs -- only suddenly to come face to face with one of the gunmen.

"He looked young and did not speak to us. He just fired. We were in sort of a single file," Mangeshikar, a 52-year-old gynecologist, told Reuters. "The man in front of my wife shielded us. He was a maintenance section staff. He took the bullets."

The tale of the unnamed staff member has echoed across Mumbai where, time after time, hotel workers have emerged as the people who shielded, hid or evacuated their wealthy guests from militants at the Taj and Trident/Oberoi hotels

Death By Blitz Line "He was bum-rushed by 200 people," said Jimmy Overby, 43, a co-worker. "They took the doors off the hinges. He was trampled and killed in front of me. They took me down too...I literally had to fight people off my back."

The unidentified victim was rushed to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 6:03 a.m., police said.








Sure I'm a big advocate of participating in the economy but sure, yeah, every one of us shares in the guilt of this bizarre death-by-donning-the-WalMart-smock. Uh huh. Even those of us who merely accept gifts purchased today. Just because it's Black Friday and it appears to be a black WalMart and just because we ain't obviously black and just because our genetic predisposition for shopping may be fixed, none of that excuses us for obsessive, fevered, heathen participation in the sad and sorry economic excesses of today -- and the season. Too bad rational -- to say nothing of spiritual -- reflection and interior readjustments and self-control and, yes, shame are passe in our world.

Calling Doctor Mumbai

"President-Elect Obama strongly condemns today's terrorist attacks in Mumbai, and his thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, and the people of India. These coordinated attacks on innocent civilians demonstrate the grave and urgent threat of terrorism. The United States must continue to strengthen our partnerships with India and nations around the world to root out and destroy terrorist networks. We stand with the people of India, whose democracy will prove far more resilient than the hateful ideology that led to these attacks,” said Brooke Anderson, Chief National Security Spokesperson
Well said Mr. P-elect. Speaking of hope, here's hoping we get more than words from you in the future.

eHarmony to Provide Gay Dating Service After Lawsuit
Wednesday, November 19, 2008

By Joshua Rhett Miller
Online dating service eHarmony has agreed to create a new Web site — "Compatible Partners" — for gay and lesbian users, the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General announced.
Created as part of a settlement with Eric McKinley, a gay man from New Jersey, the Web site will provide services for users seeking same-sex partners by March 31, New Jersey Division on Civil Rights Director J. Frank Vespa-Papaleo said.
eHarmony, which was founded by Dr. Neil Clark Warren in 2000, said the settlement was triggered by a Law Against Discrimination complaint filed by McKinley against the online service on March 14, 2005. As part of the agreement, eHarmony will pay McKinley $5,000 and will provide him a one-year complimentary membership.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Read the whole thing here. (Full disclosure: this link takes you Fox News)

Complimentary membership? That's a winner. No, really. Hey, I spent the hours answering eHarmony's questions a few years ago. Nah, I wasn't looking for a wife. And I only had to lie a bit about my libido. Hey, I've aged a little. My libido's not quite the leading indicator it was when I had more testosterone flowing -- not that I was ever all that highly testosteroned, even in my randy youth, but that's a different topic. I took the eHarmony tests to see how they'd evaluate me. To see if they'd get close to how I view myself. To see how they'd describe me. To see how they'd describe a potential mate. I gotta be honest here. Factoring in my lies, they did a darned good job. Wish I could find those results. Wonder to which hard drive I saved that? Anyway, eHarmony had me pegged pretty well for a software program. Better than any thereapist I might have ever spilled to -- if I ever admitted to that talking thing, to emptying out my savings in boohooing on a couch. And eHarmony was better than most Tarot card readers or gypsy ladies I've shared my fortune with. Better too than my Father Confessors. Uh huh. I'm thinking eHarmony should not be forced to offer their service to homos, not by litigation, not by New Jersey governmental interference, nor by bad publicity nor by homo outrage at violations of "rights," but once they do, once eHarmony tweaks its programming and fires up the gay hard drive, a) eHarmony's Board of Directors will change their minds because of the financial windfall they'll see, asking why didn't we do this before? there'$ money! to be made and b) eHarmony'll do a damned good job finding mates for those males looking for males and those females looking for females. What the heck, who thought any of us 'ud live to see any of this?

Ida Lupino

Okay, it seems to be Ida Lupino day over at Dirty Harry's place.
By the time you read this and if you follow the link to Dirty Harry's you may have to scroll on down to see why I'm thinking it's Ida Lupino day over there.
Those few of you who have been reading on this blog since its beginning may remember that it started as a roadtrip blog. Yeah. When I was prepping for that trip I Told JMax I was taking my MacBook along on my roadtrip so not to worry, I'd be emailing her from distant places.
"Email?" she spat, "I don't want no stinking email. I want a blog." Hence Boom Boom Boom.
When I saw Dirty Harry featuring Ida Lupino today, it took me back to JMax's orders, and it took me back to that 2007 road trip -- that one along the border, along the fence, the one from border crossing to border crossing, the one where on my way back I followed the Rio Grande from Boquillas Del Carmen to Santa Fe.
Well, followed the Rio where I could.
And if you ever looked at my self-portrait up over there to the right, you gotta believe me when I say the Rio's right down there past me -- and yeah, that's Mexico in the background.
What's any'o'that to do with Dirty Harry or anything?
My first two posts, before I headed out that summer, before I'd hit the road, while I was still sitting here, sitting out back with the laptop, when I was just trying to figure out how BlogSpot works, those first two posts featured: Miss Lupino. Yeah, acoupla summers ago.
Here and here.
Can you tell I like Ida?
Anyway, it's good to see Miss Lupino again, ain't it?
And it's always good to see a lady who knows how to handle a gun.

Or if you don't want to scroll at Dirty Harry's where she's up twice today just look here and for a video of Ida smoking and singing look here. Thanks DH.

And that picture above, where Ida's whipping the pistol? I swiped that from somewhere in the archives of K. Silem Mohammad's Lost in the Frame. Thanks KSM. And oh, Mohammad describes the photo something like this: Ida Lupino on the brink of deciding not to pistol-whip Alan Curtis in Raoul Walsh's 1941 High Sierra.
What else do we know about Ida Lupino? Ida generally makes the correct choice. Or if not, if she chooses badly, she takes full responsibility for the results of her bad stuff. She's all woman that way, all the time.

Craig, Daniel


Bond? Read the Fleming books when I was a kid. Never saw an entire Bond movie until Daniel Craig landed the part. I'll make up my own mind, thanks, but this from Rolling Stone could be the movie review sentence of the week:
"Bond seems to have come down with a serious case of Jason Bourne penis envy, leaping across rooftops from Bolivia to Haiti like a jug-eared Matt Damon."
Perhaps the envy is on the part of the director. Cannot imagine Craig envying metro-Damon anything, penile or otherwise. And really, whose ears are juggier?

Where Men are Men

Just in time for Veterans Day a story from the Army Times about how real American men are spending their time. Sorry bros. Thems the facts.

[The] SEALs quickly demonstrated that, aiming their silencer-equipped weapons to shoot and kill the kidnapper in the room before he could fire a round. The engineer said he heard the sounds of the operators shooting and killing a guard posted outside.

The SEALs turned to the now former hostage and told him they were there to take him back.

“I was in favor of that, 100 percent,” he said. “I was very surprised, very amazed and very happy.”

AIDS Cure?

Don't get your hopes up, bro, but the WSJ reports:
NOVEMBER 7, 2008
A Doctor, a Mutation and a Potential Cure for AIDS
A Bone Marrow Transplant to Treat a Leukemia Patient Also Gives Him Virus-Resistant Cells


The startling case of an AIDS patient who underwent a bone marrow transplant to treat leukemia is stirring new hope that gene-therapy strategies on the far edges of AIDS research might someday cure the disease.

The patient, a 42-year-old American living in Berlin, is still recovering from his leukemia therapy, but he appears to have won his battle with AIDS. Doctors have not been able to detect the virus in his blood for more than 600 days, despite his having ceased all conventional AIDS medication. Normally when a patient stops taking AIDS drugs, the virus stampedes through the body within weeks, or days.

"I was very surprised," said the doctor, Gero Hütter.

Nuptials

Look, I don't want to get married.
Neither to a woman nor to a man.
And I'm pleased for Ellen and Portia, truly. Their happiness is a good thing.
And full disclosure requires me to acknowledge that I voted FOR Proposition 8 [See previous post.] in California last week and I'm not Black Church nor Mormon nor Christian Evangelical. I'm high church Anglican -- cos I like the incense. And if you knew my parish you'd be surprised at my vote for Prop 8. And if I participate in the Rite of Reconcilliation this year, and admit my vote to my confessor, I doubt I'll be granted absolution. Not without dramatic display of pangs of contrition. Probably be shunned in my Parish if word gets out. It's not that I don't think Gay Divorce is coming. Whether I care or not. It is coming. That cat's outta the bag. I'm merely asserting patience as a tactic.
But all of that aside is it not rather bizarre that Mayoress Rasmussen can legally get hitched to guy in California while so many others propositionally cannot?

Turmoil in Westwood

I'm no regular reader of Rod McCullom, not yet anyway, but his dismaying post today over at Rod 2.0 gives us this sad-if-true report from Westwood:
Not that this wasn't expected. The recent passage of California's Proposition 8 has exposed some of the latent racism of many within the LGBT community—instigated in part by many in the e-telligentsia such as revisionist Andrew Sullivan and sex advisor turned sociologist Dan Savage. Unfortunately the "blame the blacks" meme is being commonly accepted by some so-called "progressive" gay activists
...
It was like being at a klan rally except the klansmen were wearing Abercrombie polos and Birkenstocks. YOU NIGGER, one man shouted at me
...

Just one more justification for my stance that "Gay" is a political position (liberal, self-centered) not a hyphenate identity or a lust orientation or an affectional preference and one more reason why I stay on the Studio City side of the hills and, except for church, try never to go to the city. Why mingle with those first-and-formost-gay? (Are they capable of discussing anything not related to gayity?) What's the enduring bond? Shared latency? Propensity for groupthink? What the heck, my cafe society days are decades behind me.
Of course regardless of what Rod 2.0 reports it is Conservatives and Republicans who are always branded as racists -- contrary to what one could see with one's own eyes should one choose to look -- never the Liberals or Democrats or "Progressives." Talk about a tired meme. Perhaps people really are stupid. Can't see what's right before their ideological peepers.
Got eyes? Use 'em. Then remember what you've seen.
Anyway, if you read Rod 2.0's article and the comments and the anecdotal references to groping some'o'you will know what I mean when I say that as my college mate Crazy Mary used to say back in Iowa, back when she used to slide notes under my dorm door:
"Fucking us ain't knowing us, white boy."
I digress. So though we're all prone to hyperbole these days if the street ugliness Rod 2.0 describes is true -- and not just another creepy story -- if it's true that men were called niggers in Westwood by cowardly faggoty clone hysterical angry shrill clone pinched clone oppressed middle-class spoiled caucasian homosexuals who could be surprised? No, really.
Even Rod 2.0 says the racism was not unexpected.
What a community.
Still, get a grip, boys and lesbians. This is 2008. Gay Divorce will come. Just not yet. Might take more than forty years to change thousands of years of tradition. Forget the Black church for a moment. Forget the Republicans. Forget even Governor Mrs. Todd Palin's excellent wardrobe. Can't your parading bigotry be limited to anti-Mormon bigotry? Ain't that enough hatin' for right now? All together now. Ebony and Ivory. Gay Kumbaya. And goddamn the Mormon interlopers.
Question: Anyone remember when man-on-man sex was outlaw sex? Uh huh. Anyone remember when what men-who-like men wanted was to be left alone? Remember when it was about gettin' some head. Or givin' some. To say nothing about ass. Remember when whoever got to the bed first got to be bottom? Pardon my vulgarity. I'm not saying I remember any of that, I'm just reporting what I've been told about those days. Back when affection was a bonus. And life-long commitment? Either sanctified by the church or licensed by the state -- who wanted it?
Not men.
And you racist uptight girlie-men with muscles in West Hollywood? Blaming African-Americans for your disappointment? Who you think it was who fought the NYC police in what was that 1969? It wasn't the clones. Hell, the first generation of clones hadn't even arrived yet in their flannels and Wranglers or 501s and work boots. It was Uptown Negro cross-dressing men who fought the police down in the Village, on Christopher Street. Each and every one of those sixties transvestites more man than you'll ever be in your LA whiny anger at being oppressed out of a wedding cake.
Generally I try to avoid using the language of "rights." That's your fetish, not mine. In this quest for Gay Divorce my final question is always, has been for years, since Anita Bryant really, when did bourgois respectability become a right?
That's what you're "fighting" for here, ain't it? Please accept me. It's my civil right to be accepted.
Fuck that.
And hey, what about the Black church choir singer's right to be DL? His Down Low Pride? DL at church. DL at home and with family. DL in his "community." Ain't he got rights too? I'm just saying.
Rod 2.0? You're a writer. Rethink your use of the words community and latent. Might want to reexamine the concept of "landslide" too.

AN ELECTION THAT THE REPUBLICANS NEEDED TO LOSE -- GOOD LUCK OBAMA

By DICK MORRIS

Published on TheHill.com on November 5, 2008

If ever there was an election that was not worth winning, it was the contest of 2008. While it was hard-fought on both sides, had McCain won, it might have spelled the end of the Republican Party. As it is, the party is well-situated to come back in 2010 and in 2012, if it learns the lessons of this year.

Simply put, all hell is about to break loose in the markets and the economy. The mortgage crisis will likely be followed by defaults in credit card debt, student loans and car loans. We will probably be set for two years of zero growth, according to economists with whom I talk. And the federal efforts to protect the nation from the worst of the recession will probably lead to huge budget deficits and resulting inflation. We are in for stagflation that could last for years.


What is it I find so hopeful? The opportunity to default on my student loans. And to think, I almost drained my 403b last year to settle that old debt....Wait -- maybe I shouldda drained that thing. Read the whole thing here.

Meanwhile, if I don't go to the gym, I'll go back to work so my boss can go vote. We don't agree on much, but that's not the point, and not to worry anyway, she's probably voting for Barr. She doesn't like Obama or McCain -- among a hefty list of things she doesn't much like. Of course, she's Persian, so there's some'o'that Iranianism mixed in too -- appropriately so. But, she's a citizen, and like many of us, loves to vote on election day, no matter the outcome. Wonder how that "mock" election we had at work ended up?

Cumming's Attractions: Alan Dishes on Presidential Penetration Preferences at Faggy Fundraiser
Alan Cumming wanted me to vote for Barack Obama, even though the Scotsman couldn’t pull that lever himself.

“Alas, I didn’t get my citizenship in time. On Thursday I’ll be a citizen, but I missed the registration date.”

As a last-ditch effort to raise money for Obama’s campaign, the Tony Award-winner called on his celebrity friends to provide auction items for a fundraising event Tuesday night at Eastern Bloc, the Soviet-themed East Village gay bar.

Items included a Donna Karan dress worn by Susan Sarandon to the Emmys (pictured), limited edition posters and DVDs signed by famous folk, a personal dog training session with—no joke!—Jennifer Jason Leigh and an invitation to Liza Minelli’s 2002 wedding to David Gest, the highest-earning item, which went for $500.

Eastern Bloc co-owner Gabriel Beaton assured me, “All the money at the door goes to Obama. And after we cover our expenses every other dollar we make goes to Obama.” With less than a week until the presidential election, Cumming emphasized the high stakes, “It’s a make or break situation. The whole world is holding its breath. Either America is going to get it together or we’re totally fucked.”

What changes does he foresee? “I think the sensibility will change. Immediately what will happen is that the world will change its perception of America.” As the Price is Right theme music began, I asked Cumming who’d make a better lover, Joe Biden or Obama. “I’d be so nervous about sleeping with the next president of the United States,” he said. “They’re both very sexy.”

None of us has a right to other people's approval.

Creepy


There's so much creepiness going on with those Obama worshippers. Tatted numbers on the arm is but the latest; might not be the creepiest thing, even from the Kos Kooks, but Lord Lord.

Miss Laura's parents gotta be proud:
That's why it was such a surprise the day I found my
desire to win was stronger than my fear, and made
204 phone calls.I gritted my teeth every time I dialed.
But I did it. So I got myself a souvenir, to remind me
I can push myself further than I thought I could go.
Wonder if she got the idea when That One was giving his Citizen of the World speech in Germany? Yeah, Germans have a thing about numbers tatted on the arm.
