Page 1 Consider (07/26)

  • Does This Friend Make Me Look Fat? Obesity can spread from person to person, much like a virus, researchers are reporting today. When one person gains weight, close friends tend to gain weight, too. Finally, a little science to back up what I've been saying all along. (NYT)

  • Ft. Fagg: Those Fort Bragg soldiers love the gay porn. (365Gay)

  • Reno 911: Police have charged a Reno, Nev., man with trying to hire a hit-man to kill his wife so he could avoid a messy divorce and be able to live with his homosexual lover. Reno Police say that James Gau, 50, sought to have his estranged wife murdered so that his gay relationship would not become public and possibly lead to his being denied custody of the couples six children. I'm guessing this probably isn't going to help much with that either. (365Gay)

  • Mad Magazine: Genre fires its editor and replaces him with a "straight" married with children guy who likes to pretend he's fooling around with Jann Wenner, or something. I told Chris Ciompi he should run one of my articles ... (Jossip)

  • Bad Hed: Trangender Workers Making Advances in the Workplace / Hey, I have no problem with transsexuals. But I don't want them making the move on me -- especially when I'm trying to get some work done. (365Gay)

  • Shooting Fish: A cat in Rhode Island is said to predict deaths at nursing homes. That's amazing. I predict the sun will come up tomorrow. (AP)

  • McUnions: Irish Prime Minister Bertie Ahern announced Wednesday that his government will bring in legislation giving same-sex couples the same rights as married pairs. The legislation would be similar to Britain's civil partnership law that gives gay and lesbian couples all of the rights of marriage except the name. Could America be more ashamed of itself now?

  • Nauglehead: Why is the mayor of Fort Lauderdale such a dick? (Towleroad)

  • Scared Straight (Into Forgetting a Word): I think it's wonderful that this coach has started a program to help kids steer clear of gangs and violence, but maybe Todd Walker, who calls his organization Restoring Inner City Peace, or R.I.P., could use a little help with his abbreviation. (NYT)

  • Tour de Farce: Chaos and disgrace enveloped the Tour de France early Thursday after the event’s overall leader, Michael Rasmussen, was removed from the race by his Rabobank team for lying about where he was training so he could avoid taking random drug tests. Can we just be honest -- finally -- and admit that steroids are prevalent throughout sports? (Oh, and at my gym.) (NYT)
