What does it say about congress that the man with the biggest cajones is gay?

Just saying, he's got style

Speaking of guys I'd like to buy a drink, good to "see" you around again!

It's been a long time, I think the one time we met was at TM's back in NY.

Keep posting or drop me a note every now and then (same email as this account name, but @gmail.com)!

I remember that well. You brought some really good steak. I'm on the west coast now, so we've both migrated. It would be great to get together again somewhere! We're having a tiny con in town Sept 4th ;)

BRILLIANT!

'nuff said.

(one of these days we'll be up your way with some time to spend, we passed through two weeks ago but it was probably about 5am then when we were coming back from Denver)

well when you're headed south and go by Rio Bravo (that's the next exit after the airport) wave to the west, we're around there somewhere :)

Any chance of you coming up for Bubonicon this weekend?

RATS! Sadly, probably not. I'm still settling in after leaving Las Cruces to move back to Cloudcroft to better come to grips with my immune problem. We're going to Phoenix over Labor Day for me to attend Disc World Con (GoH Terry Pratchett), then going to Dallas two weeks later for FenCon (GoH Lois McMasters Bujold).

We've also been hemorrhaging a lot of money with the move and a two week driving trip to Ohio: Russet's mother passed away in June and was interred first of August, we drove largely due to my immune problem.

But we're still plugging away at WoW: my DK is up to 72 and Russ is close to getting her second 80. Giving vague consideration to trying to attend BlizCon some time, but next year I'm going to try to drag her to Dragon*Con.

WBZ radio which I listen to only because it has e.g. the weather every ten minutes in the morning, didn't have the integrity to bother to anything beyond the woman being argumentative, though it broadcast Rep. Frank's comments to her. WBZ is one of the stations which left any consideration of moderation and impartial reporting and "fairness" behind when Westinghouse Broadcasting became part of Columbia/Paramount/Viacom the result has been a network which whores itself and panders to those pushing inequality and the agenda and attitudes and reporting and editorial bias promoting the misadministration that left office in January.

I called the station to complain about its reporting and got told, "there are talk radio shows all evening." Yeah, sure, that's fairness, when the talk hosts are all male, white with one exception, and every one of them illiberal and anti-progressive, in MASSACHUSETTS. Like someone who's female who believes in equal opportunity is going to want to listen to that crap and to call in and be metaphorically urinated upon by the male anti-equal opportunity talk hosts, and their bigoted audience. NFW....

You know, if the boycott of Glen Beck's sponsors does anything measurable (like, please oh please, cost him his job), it would be worth a shot to try it at the local talk radio stations, esp the ones in a progressive market where they'd get at least as many listeners if they provided an alternative to the morons of the right.
