Illegal Ride; Saddle-Up!
Chief of police Kevin Ambeau of St. Gabriel, Louisiana, went on WAFB News Channel 9, to ask viewers to attempt to identify a man captured on hidden video screwing a horse. Owners of a barn in St. Gabriel became suspicious when they found sex paraphernalia in one of their horse stalls. They installed two video cameras and were shocked to watch the tapes and find a thin, light-skinned man, wearing flip-flops, creeping into the barn in the middle of the night to have intercourse with their horse. They turned the video over to police who now say that when the man is captured he may serve up to five years in prison and be fined up to $2,000.
Gay marriage is an enormous issue and whether you agree that all consenting adults should have the right to marry the one they love, or you feel the sacrament of marriage would be defiled by same-sex couples taking the plunge, new statistics may actually put the discussion in perspective for many. A new study shows that the percentage of gay couples choosing to tie-the-knot in countries that legalized gay marriage, was negligible. Less than 10% of gay couples in Belgium, the Netherlands and Canada actually took the plunge. Even Massachusetts, which legalized gay marriage in 2004, had less than 20% of the gay population opting to be anchored down. So, it would seem that for all the fury of the religious right to ban gay marriage, the issue may be moot. Maybe now we can concentrate on issues that affect a larger segment of the population – how about straight-couples divorce rates?
Gay Man Walking
Less than one week after asking you to sponsor me for this year’s NY AIDS Walk, I have reached my goal. Initially, I set my goal at $500, but your response was overwhelming and I raised my goal to $700. Today, I’ve surpassed my goal and have raised $725. Even more uplifting, there are still several sponsors who will be contributing to the campaign in the coming days. I am floored by your support and can’t say enough about how much your contribution means to thousands of victims living with AIDS. On May 21, I will be high-stepping it with each of you pulling me forward by my heart strings. Thank you!
If you want control buy the album…. Relationships can sometimes take odd turns and we may find ourselves changing facets of our personality to conform or compromise to make them work. Comic Chris Rock once said that when we meet someone, we’re not meeting them, we’re meeting their representative. Do you find that you conceal aspects of your personality when you go on your first few dates with folks? Why is it important to not allow your prospective boyfriends or girlfriends know the “real” you? What about you do you struggle to change with each new partnership to change the outcome of your relationship? Has it worked?
Keep passin’ the open windows…
