HE ASKS, HE TELLS: (Sorry, Kaus.) A good friend, and gin-u-wine war hero, will be in town Tuesday speaking on perhaps the one contemporary Gay Issue where we actually agree: the military's unrealistic (maybe if we clap our hands real loud, all the fairies will disappear!) and damaging policy. Here's the information (I love how a dashing rescuer is only a slightly bigger draw than free pizza...):CSSMM LUNCHEON BRIEFING: "GAYS AND LESBIANS AT WAR: Military Service in Iraq and Afghanistan Under … [Read more...]

"I COUNT ONLY SUNNY HOURS": TOUCH AND GO. The last section of the psychics story. This took a lot longer than I expected, and I'm not sure it was worth it. Last week I was completely convinced this story was a waste of time--something done better by others--but now I think it might actually be really good, and doing what I want it to do, and doing its thing better than others have done it. (I don't mind doing something that's been done before as long as my version is better. If you follow any … [Read more...]

LOCKED UP TOO TIGHT: From the Washington Post. Excerpt: Guards moved young inmates around the prison on a leash. To control youths who disobeyed orders, guards would sometimes don riot gear and use "pepper spray" -- tear gas mixed with cayenne pepper. At other times, groups of guards surrounded young inmates and handcuffed them by their wrists and ankles to the four corners of their beds. Young prisoners were held in isolation cells for weeks at a time. This mistreatment went on for more than a … [Read more...]

MORE ON "NOCHNOI DOZOR": Maureen, the Suburban Banshee (I'm getting a kind of Siouxsie Sioux meets Harry Potter vibe there), writes in re the movie discussed here:You wrote: "sounds interesting..."It is. And I'm sorry I didn't give a real good description of how much fun it is, as well as being serious. Nothing like a magic truck speeding through the streets of Moscow!The original book is really good, too, at least as far as I've gotten. Man, if I had just paid more attention in Russian … [Read more...]

WHAT DO THEY DO WITH THE EMBRYOS?: From the Associated Press, via Amy Welborn. Excerpts:In a survey believed to be the first of its kind, 217 in vitro fertilization clinics across the country described the variety of methods they use to dispose of the frozen clusters of cells, which are the size of a dot and incapable of living outside a mother's womb.The reverence that some clinics gave to the task surprised researchers at the University of Pennsylvania and Rutgers University.Seven … [Read more...]

BATTLE OF THE BOOKS: Rick Brookhiser reignites the Eliot Wars--in this case, Eliot vs. Auden. He's on the right side, but... what a weird title bout. I really love Auden. I love his surreal fleshcreepers. I love his journalistic ear for the clean, memorable, "why didn't I think of that?" summary phrase ("human on my faithless arm," "Children afraid of the dark/Who have never been happy or good," probably most of the Auden you remember). I would love to see the New York Post with headlines by … [Read more...]
