Page 1 Consider (03/27)

  • Too Fresh 'n' Fruity? Two lezzies claim they were thrown out of an IHOP in Grandview, Missouri, after sharing a simple peck on the cheek. The restaurant's management maintains that the couple's "bold displays of affection" were "repeated in a number of locations in the restaurant." Mmmm. It's hard to guess what IHOP means by "bold displays," but you just know those gals ordered the Ruby Fruit Jungle breakfast. (AP)

  • Tommy Lee Does Dudes: Well, their feet, at least. (Bang)

  • Charmed, I'm Sure: Did you read about the racist and homophobic e-mails U.S. Army recruiter Sgt. Marcia Ramode sent to Corey Andrew of Jersey City when he informed her that he was gay? (I wonder if he's the recording artist of the same name.) In an ongoing exchange, she told Andrew that "being gay is disgusting and immoral." In another e-mail, Ramode wrote, "You must be a total idiot and so stupid to presume that you do not know what gender you are." Ramode added that Andrew should be more grateful to the military for defending his freedoms, but that as a gay man "he should leave the United States." (How's that for freedom?!!! --kw) By this point the insults were flying both ways. Andrew criticized Ramode’s vocabulary and poor spelling and, after finding out she was Native American, wrote: "So take that to your next rain dance."(SNAP --kw) In response, the enraged sergeant said in graphic language that Andrew, who is black, should "GO BACK TO AFRICA AND DO YOUR GAY VOODOO LIMBO TANGO AND WANGO DANCE AND JUMP AROUND AND PRANCE AND RUN ALL OVER THE PLACE HALF NAKED THERE.""IF YOU ARE GAY WE DON’T TAKE YOU. YOU ARE CONSIDERED UNQUALIFIED." What a class act we have representing our country. Let's hope the U.S. military disposes of this one right quick. (EDGE)

  • Butch Camp: The Philippine National Police (PNP) has issued a warning to gay officers not to sway their hips or display suggestive behavior while on duty or they risk losing their jobs. If they sway their hips while marching, or if they engage in lustful conduct, I think that will be ground for separation" from the service, Pagdilao said. Gee, so nice that the land of Imelda Marcos is so forward-thinking. I hope the straights don't rape women, scratch their balls excessively or spit, either. (PS)

  • Mirror, Mirror on the Wall: This week's Advocate wants to know who's gayer, Barack Obama or Hillary Rodham Clinton? (Somewhere, Gennifer Flowers is answering this question, but it has nothing to do with anyone's stance on the issues.) The Advocate says, "They're politically correct on gay issues, but what to they really think of us?" (Advocate)

  • Creep: Why am I just certain that Scott Weiland deserved to have his clothes torched by his wife, Mary? (AP)

  • Outsports: According to a new national survey, 72 percent of heterosexual adults say their feelings toward their favorite male professional athlete would not change if the player revealed he is gay. (Advocate)

  • Artsy Fartsy: A year in Manhattan without toilet paper? This Fifth Avenue family wants to show they can live a Walden Pond-like lifestyle for one year, yet they still have a fucking cleaning woman. (NYT)

  • Courtside Hate Speech: A heckler was ejected from the tennis tournament in Key Biscayne, Florida, yesterday after making a racist remark to Serena Williams. 'The guy said, 'Hit the net like any Negro would.' I was shocked," Williams said. "I couldn't believe it. I had to do a double take. I think I hit a double fault on that point." How sickening is that? Maybe he thought he was at a NASCAR event. (AP)

  • The $131 Million Woman: Socialite Brooke Astor's 12-room duplex apartment on Park Avenue is worth about $24 million -- $2 million per room. Her 65-acre estate in Briarcliff Manor, N.Y., is valued at $17 million -- nearly $20.5 million if you include the personal property inside. She holds an estimated $23.5 million in stocks, and the jewelry she keeps in New York City has been appraised at around $1.3 million. But I've got way more in my Citibank checking account than she has in hers. (NYT)
