Page 1 Consider (10/15)

  • Quarterflash: Tony Romo is no match for Tom Brady, but I guess we already knew that. (AP)

  • Where in the Job Description Is This? A Vatican official suspended after being caught on hidden camera making advances to a young man said in an interview published Sunday that he is not gay and was only pretending to be gay as part of his work. (AP) Of course, when you do admit who you are the end result isn't much different. (AP)

  • Big Bill: Here's an interesting, if somewhat awkwardly written, article about the tennis legend Bill Tilden, whose sexual exploits with underage boys nearly overshadowed his larger-than-life game. (GayWired)

  • Next Thing You'll Tell Me Is Jodie Foster's Gay, Too: New York Teachers Union president Randi Weingarten, one of the city's most powerful labor leaders, publicly came out as a lesbian at a National Coming Out Day event Thursday night. (NYT)

  • Guys and Dolls: Getting to know those guys who "date" blow-up dolls. (GoogleVideo)

  • Girl Doesn't Know When to Quit: Larry Craig told Matt Lauer last night that he can't understand why Mitt Romney -- whose religion prohibits him from even drinking Coca-Cola -- ditched him after the Idaho senator's bathroom sex arrest. (MSNBC)

  • Renaissance Man: Who knew Ethan Hawke was an actor, writer, director -- and interventionist? (NYT)

  • Trans Fusion: Good for Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi for agreeing Friday to fast-track a transgender-inclusive Employment Non-Discrimination Act once there are enough votes to pass it. But when exactly is that going to be? (Advocate) Meantime, transactivist Joanne Herman does a nice job of explaining why trans-inclusion is so important -- not just to transsexuals -- here.

  • The Cat-cophy of War: For all you feline freaks, John Burns' touching tale of what cats know about war is worth a read. (NYT)

  • Justice Is Served: Anthony Fortunato, the worthless, self-hating piece of shit who lured Michael Sandy to a remote New York City beach so he and his friends could rob him, then tried to claim he was a closet-case himself to try to get out of hate-crime charges, was convicted of manslaughter as a hate crime on Thursday. Bravo to the jury for seeing through this warped attempt at sympathy, an admission I feel, if anything, bolstered the hate crime stipulation. (AP)

  • Straight Talk Express: With their new initiative, "Straight For Equality," PFLAG harnesses hetero power for homo rights. (Advocate)

  • Gay Books: A panel at the West Hollywood Book Fair discusses the outlook for the gay book market and it ain't pretty. (AI)

  • The Return of KS: Doctors in San Francisco have reported an outbreak among long-term AIDS patients of Kaposi's sarcoma, the viral skin disease whose purple lesions were a telltale sign of advancing disease before drugs were developed to treat the epidemic. (Advocate)

  • Redemption Hunting: The buzz on Ben Affleck's directorial debut, "Gone Baby Gone," is really positive -- and so is the reaction to his return to Boston. (NYT)
