A friend swears we've got a bulge situation here, but Larry David and I know a misleading bunching of the pants when we see one! (Wouldn't that be too high?) BTW: Just how many HOT FRIENDS does Jesus' starting QB have?
Yes, yes, yes.

This guy is a gun nut who was concealed-carrying a gun during the OCC shooting, yet he didn't fire a shot. Why? Listening to him explain his sensible reaction completely obliterates arguments by fellow gun nuts that everyone should be armed in order to prevent mass shootings.Click HERE.
The Stonewall Inn has long been a landmark in the gay rights movement — and now it's official!
“It is a tremendous part of our history,” said Councilman Corey Johnson (D-Manhattan), who represents the district and is gay. “Because of the real estate boom and pressures we’ve seen in the Village and all across Manhattan, we needed this further level of protection.”I'll drink to this.
Now tell President Obama we need to create a national park for Stonewall. Sign the petition HERE.
I'm not sure why people are so heartened by the pope meeting with a gay former student when a Vatican official was just fired after coming out on the eve of Church conference on family, but if you're into that kind of thing, Towleroad has more about the reunion.
“When he [Francis] shows up on that corridor and I see him, and we embrace, it was so wonderful. “I joked with him, we told each other a couple of jokes, and then I introduced all my friends to him, and they had things to bless and we talked. He asked me how my business is doing, what kind of food I was cooking, really things of a friend, that a friend would ask another friend.”Read HERE.
I remember this case like it was yesterday because it felt like it could have been my family -- coming to New York (from Utah) to go to the U.S. Open only to be attacked by a group of young men on a subway platform in Midtown Manhattan. When they slashed his father and knocked his mother down and kicked her in the head, their brave son (Brian Watkins) stood up for them -- only to be stabbed to death. It was later reported that the men said they needed money to dancing at Roseland Ballroom (huh???). The son could have been me, minus the bravery, and the tragedy galvanized public outrage over violent crime in New York -- which had become legendary through the 1970s and '80s -- and finally got police to do something about it.

Well, in a scene straight out of the Central Park Five, a judge has ordered a new trial for one of the men convicted for the crime, who has spent nearly 25 years behind bars. Johnny Hincapie, 43, began to sob uncontrollably when the judge read his decision after months of anticipation. Sadly, it sounds like more police corruption and another coerced confession of a teenager. I don't know what really happened that awful day, but here's hoping this man will finally get a fair trial. He and the family of the victim deserve justice. Read HERE.

Novak Djokovic opened his new partnership with younger brother Djordje in triumphant style as they won their first ever doubles match at the China Open on Tuesday. The Djokovic brothers chest-bumped and high-fived their way to a 7-6 (7/5), 6-7 (6/8), 10-5 victory over the China-New Zealand pairing of Gong Mao-Xin and Michael Venus. It was the first time Novak Djokovic, the singles world number one, and Djordje, ranked at 1,502, have collaborated and the younger sibling did his share of the damage with some savage forehands. Fans were out in force at Beijing's National Tennis Center to see the unprecedented pairing. Novak Djokovic, eight years the elder at 28, is a five-time singles winner at the China Open. "The crowd got into it. It was exciting. I'm very happy for my brother, that he was able to experience such an atmosphere," Novak Djokovic said. "He never did that before. He never experienced such a great crowd. He never played in a big stadium. We enjoyed it very much -- encouraging each other to the first win." Novak Djokovic earlier won his 25th successive China Open match with a 6-1, 6-1 victory over Italy's Simone Bolelli.
