Granny, I Hardly Knew Ye

I never met my Father, who was killed by a teenage drunk driver on Valentine’s Day, on the 610 loop in Houston. He’s buried in Conroe, Texas, and I haven’t been there to see him – or rather his stone – and anything beyond an incidental visit while in Houston seems a monumental waste of time and money, replete with irony: flying to see a monument to a man, in death, who never lifted a finger to see me, in life. I do have his face, essentially, a few pictures of him, an old home movie, and the flag under which he was interred, but that’s about it.

When I was 19 and on hiatus (read: suspended for a semester) from the University of Florida, I took my suddenly free time to visit Lake Charles, Louisiana, meet my grandparents, uncles, aunt, and cousins, and actually live in Houston with my uncle Charlie, Jr. (a man who made a living with a Continue reading ‘Granny, I Hardly Knew Ye’

She declares vehemently that this is not “hate-speech.” Yeah, right, and waterboarding isn’t torture. Gays aren’t going to destroy the country, people like Sally Kern will. Vote Democrat.

Please, take a moment to send this hateful, ignorant woman an email or favor her with a phone call (405) 557-7348.

Is Brady Quinn Really a Homophobe?

Evidently, Brady and his buddies were not being very nice to our gay brothers at a Columbus watering hole on New Year’s Day. Funny how this took 6 weeks to surface – on both sides. The story is all over the place. Quinn’s camp is mum. At most, Brady has vastly underestimated the presence of his gay fans, at least, he needs to choose better company. I’ll wait and see what the punk has to say for himself, but this really kills my wood.
