Page 1 Consider (03/28)

  • Crush Groove: Sorry, folks. It doesn't matter how many times respected publications write this imaginary "men having crushes on men" story, it still doesn't make it true. Get your gay fantasies somewhere else, Adam Rapoport. (GQ) See also: The Man Date (NYT)
  • Redecorating the Frat House: New York University’s Inter-Greek Council has allowed Delta Lambda Phi, a gay and bisexual fraternity, to be recognized on campus after a three-semester trial period. (NYP)
  • Southern Style: The bill to bar gays and lesbians from adopting or being foster parents to children was posed to the Arkansas House of Representatives Judiciary Committee twice on Tuesday, and both times failed. Finally, the smart people rule! (ArkansasBlog)
  • Diagnosis: Karma: I would never wish bad health news on anyone, but if someone has to have a recurrence of cancer, White House spokesdick Tony Snow sure seems like a fair choice. (WP)

  • Your Cheatin' Pedophilic Heart: Big girl Wynonna Judd filed for divorce on Tuesday after her husband was arrested on what police said were sexual battery charges involving a child under 13. Is it just me or does it seem 50 percent of all men want to have sex with children? Oh, well: it sounds like someone's got a hit song in the making on her hands. (Reuters)
  • Hangman: Are we supposed to feel something for a kid who has reformed himself since nearly dying playing a self-choking game? (NYT)
  • Area Satirists Launch TV Show: The Onion is one of the funniest things I've ever read. But will a online TV version work? (Newsweek)
  • Virginia Is for (Gun) Lovers: Wouldn't it be more surprising if someone from Virginia weren't carrying a loaded handgun into the U.S. Capitol? (WP)

  • Don't Cry for Him, Argentina: First David Nalbandian had Roger Federer's number and now it appears Guillermo Canas has it. The steroid-abusing Argentine stunned King Roger for the second time in 15 days, 7-6 (7- 2), 2-6, 7-6 (7-5) in the fourth round Tuesday at the Miami Masters. Meanwhile, Serena Williams humiliated Maria Sharapova, 6-1, 6-1, in a match that looked remarkably similar to this year's Australian Open final. Naturally, Serena hasn't played a tournament since and was no worse for the non-wear (or something) (AP)
  • Does This Sperm Count? For the love of Valerie Cherish, I did not need to see this. (Reuters)
  • Victoria's Understatement: A man who was charged with theft and burglary after police said they found 93 pounds of women's panties, brassieres and other underwear (more than 1,500 items) at his home says he has "a problem." Gee, do ya think?? (AP)

  • Glazed and Confused: Is this why there's a lot more Rachael Ray again these days? (PRN)

    Given the White House's track record, I wouldn't be surprised if the Tony Snow story isn't a lie, intended to steal the spotlight aways from the Dems' Elizabeth Edwards tragedy. Cold? Yes. But they really are that sleazy. This country has been violated in ways that most people do not even realize.
