I'm enjoying putting up these roundup of stories we haven't covered on the Project, but I wonder if anyone's reading them/clicking through. They rarely get comments, but there's never much commentary from me either. Either way, here goes:
- You should definitely check out this response to John McCain's statement on gay adoption. I quote local blogger Doug Masson often, but this time it's Amy Masson, Doug's wife, who hits it out of the park. As I said in the comments section over there, I can remember when I was just about the only person blogging LGBT issues in Indiana; now we've hit critical mass.
- Box Turtle Bulletin blogger Timothy Kincaid stumbled across a couple of anti-gay articles on Insure.com, an insurance industry site, including the gem "Top five ways to kill yourself and get away with it." Wanna guess what #1 is? Be gay. The company CEO is in the comments section making things worse by defending junk scientist Paul Cameron and acting like a general ass. As BTB editor Jim Burroway tells him, "You are now just commenting blindly - and embarrassing yourself in the process."
- Openly gay CNN reporter Richard Quest has returned to work after being arrested in Central Park with meth and a rope tied to his cock.
- And, finally, if you've been following my problems with neighborhood crime, this latest incident takes the cake. A police officer was shot in the head a few blocks from my home.
