New ABC Show Stages Phony Gay Bullying to Foment Outrage

So letís say youíre at some restaurant, enjoying your chai tea and veggie burger, reading a worn out copy of Our Bodies, Ourselves, and in a booth nearby you hear a father and son arguing. The conversation gets nasty, as the pop says, ďThere are solutions to this! No son of mine is going to be gay!Ē
...
Itís a morality experiment: the man berates his son for being gay Ė and if you donít do anything Ė well, youíre just an awful, cowardly homophobe. Later, the performers question bystanders as to why they didnít interrupt, and of course are judged for lack of involvement.
Well if it was a private conversation, wasn't creating a disturbance and there wasn't any violence, then I say it's none of my business. And as the movie Borat and the NBC-planting-Muslims-at-NASCAR incident prove, the average American is far more tolerant and live-and-let-live than they're ever given credit for.

Up to 84 Million Mexicans To Be Designated 'Trusted Travelers', Allowed To Bypass Airport Security Checks
I'd be okay with this if Americans could do the same thing. But Big Sis Napolitano seems determined to make herself one of the most hated government officials ever.

Hmm Crash Government Program For Anti-radiation Drug
It's interesting that there was an extended radioactive material search 'drill' near Atlanta last month and now the government is pushing CBLB502, a radiation treatment drug, through the orphan drug program. I wonder what they know.

Son of Pink Floyd Guitarist David Gilmour: Trustafarian Thug
Sure his father is worth over £78 million but son, Charlie Gilmour, was caught throwing stones, hanging off the Union flag at the Centograph Cenotaph, and likely looting boots from a store during the recent riots over the government making students pay for part of their tuition. And despite being a history major at Lancing College in West Sussex, Charlie claims that he had no idea of the historical significance of the monument.

Winona Ryder Has Never Used the Internet

"I don't use the Internet," Winona Ryder says in the January issue of Elle magazine, "but apparently you can find out everything on it. I have my e-mail on my BlackBerry, and that's about it. I've never read a blog, ever."
Well I suggest match.com, eharmony, and jdate.

Julian Assange's 2006 OKCupid Dating Profile
Using the pseudonym, HarryHarrison:

I like women from countries that have sustained political turmoil. Western culture seems to forge women that are valueless and inane. OK. Not only women!
Although I am pretty intellectually and physically pugnacious I am very protective of women and children.
I am DANGER, ACHTUNG, and ??????????????!
Well he ought to be whacked just for terminal pretentious douchebaggery. The whole Wikileaks thing is just icing on the assassination cake.

Ditch the Skillet And Fire Up Your Oven to Cook Perfect Bacon

The technique is obscenely simple. Grab a cookie or jelly roll tray, line it with foil, place the bacon on the foil, and then cook in your oven for 20-25 minutes at 375F. Pat the bacon dry with some paper towels and serve. The bacon I made using the above technique was so delicious and so perfectly cooked it was amazing; the bacon practically melted in your mouth and was, by far, the best bacon I'd ever had
