Dallas missed an opportunity

Posted on 22 Nov 2013 at 7:45am

Instead of showcasing the city’s evolvement into a cultural center since the 1963 assassination, it’s showing off it’s paranoia Every Dallas hotel room should have been booked this week for a celebration of the life of President John F. Kennedy on the 50th anniversary of his assassination in Dealey Plaza. Instead, the city has perpetuated [...]

Posted on 16 Nov 2013 at 10:06am

No water for you. That’s the message the state of New Mexico delivered to Texas in a statement today, saying it will no longer allow the Rio Grande River to continue its course into the Lone Star State.

Oh, Tex, you’re in for a heck of a lickin’

What’s wrong with Texas and the other five Southern states who refuse to grant benefits to spouses of National Guard members? If the state of Texas was a person, let’s say a man just to make it fun, he’d be on Dr. Phil trying to explain why he likes to get kicked in the rear [...]

If I had taken a different career path, I’d have more money and hair Somewhere along the career path I took a wrong turn because it’s obvious the broadcast journalists are the ones having all the fun. They’re all movie star gorgeous, and they get to engage in witty banter with one another about the humidity, hair [...]

Wicked ‘Game’

Posted on 01 Nov 2013 at 9:50am

Protesting a movie like ‘Ender’s Game’ just because of the author’s politics doesn’t make much sense   Today, the film Ender’s Game opens on 3,350 screens across North America. It’s a sci-fi extravaganza with two Oscar winners and more than half-a-dozen more nominations among its principal cast and director, Gavin Hood. You’d normally expect to [...]

This is as good as it gets

Working for a stellar LGBT publication is the capstone in a gay journalist’s career I clearly remember the moment I realized I’m gay. Years ago (OK, decades ago), I was sitting in seventh grade English class, feigning interest in the complexities of adverbs and the horrors of split infinitives, when it hit me. For months, [...]

We were collecting and recording stories — any stories that people might want to share about [...]
