Three’s a Party: A Very Lusty Lord

Entry Img

“I Want to be Led Astray” We Americans have an imperfect and  overly proper view of Brits perhaps influenced by their wonderful way of speaking and all that royal pomp. After all, how could anyone speaking like that be naughty? Well. Lord Sewel, a.k.a., Baron Sewel of Gilcomstoun, helps us understand. The Baron is a bit […]

Forced to Go Abroad New information out this week underscores the critical need for congressional staffers to receive a substantial increase in pay. Fred W.

A Fire Chief, Social Media and Gender Identity Last week Statter911.com reported that Charlotte, North Carolina, deputy fire chief Jeff Dulin was in the hot seat for a posting from his personal Facebook page.

Some Power Play? Philly.com reports that, “A Philadelphia paramedic has alleged that about a dozen fellow Fire Department employees pressured her into sex – including a supervisor and two Fire Academy instructors – over a four-year period, according to a source with knowledge of the woman’s account.” Indeed, one of the assignations is said to […]

“Fairy” Tale Atlanta: Kelvin and the Beasts

Entry Img

According to media, Atlanta fire chief Kelvin Cochran, a former US Fire Administrator, has been terminated for lack of judgment in publishing and disseminating a book which compares homosexuality to bestiality and pederasty and for giving it to employees, some of whom complained.

You’re On Mikvah Camera The religious world, or at least a segment of it, was shaken recently by the news of Washington Rabbi Barry Freundel’s arrest on charges of voyeurism. The Rabbi is alleged to have videotaped female congregants and others as they disrobed and used a ritual bath known as a “mikvah.” Freundel, in addition […]

Providence: A HoMo Horror

The Ideology of Queerness? In 2001, Providence, R.I., firefighters drove a rig in a Gay Pride parade. Thirteen years later, that drive is the subject of a R.I. State Supreme Court case.

Smile For the Camera Does our collective heart go out to soon-to-be former Navy War College professor John Schindler whose penis was apparently tweeted, so to speak? Perhaps not. The tweet was of a text message which  included a different sort of  member ID. Included in the press coverage is an email purportedly written by Mr. Schindler. […]

The Social Media Ejaculation
Words do hurt, and Guy Estergall is a bully who uses his words to attack and demean others. There should be consequences for that. I can tell you from prior contacts that Estergall despises anyone in the fire service who is not a white male. I don't believe that someone who consistently refers to others…

Iran and “The Deal”
You make a lot of declarative statements without facts or support of any kind to the point that it is absurd. The leader of Iran is not Hitler. There are Americans in jail EVERYWHERE. The sanctions surely worked and they can be reinstituted. The "they will nuke Israel" stuff is right-wing evangelical christian propaganda. Holding…

Iran and “The Deal”
I think you are wrong. Once the assets that we have frozen are unfrozen, they will be moved beyond our control. Sanctions can't be turned on and off like a faucet. Iran supplied bombs that killed and maimed US servicemen in Iraq. That is much more recent than 1979. There are currently 4 Americans being…
