Giving Birth to Demons. Really!?

From Billy Masters' column in the April 30th issue of Boston's Bay Windows:

Joseph Sciambra was a gay-porn star—although I've never heard of him. He's now an ex-gay Christian preaching against homosexuality. He claims that during his gay days, he was hospitalized after some extremely rough anal sex and ( I quote ), "had to have my sphincters almost stitched shut." In a video, he says, "I'm going to talk about the devil and why he loves anal sex. Anal sex releases into the world rare demonic entities and that even in the body could be conceived as the devil and that would be given birth to anally."
Hahahaha. This Sciambra character is clueless. Everybody who knows that we create Gods and Demons with our Brains. And the only thing anal sex gives birth to is bad air. That, and that special substance known as "santorum".

Oops...

I went to the New Orleans CBD Rouse's on Girod and Baronne Streets yesterday. As I left the store out back to the railway station I noticed the sidewalk was raised with stairs for about five feet. At the end of the sidewalk at O'Keefe Avenue, there were two perfect ADA wheelchair access ramps.

This is a HUGE mistake!
 
Nobody in a wheelchair can navigate this sidewalk. They have to go OUT into the parking lot and try to get into the rear entrance that way, or go around the corner and come in at Girod Street.
 
To the architects, engineers, contractors and public officials responsible for this snafu, all I need to do is quote what a certain St. Louis Cardinals fan said to liberal protestors during the Bush years: 
 
 
[sic!]

Hey, Putin!

President of the Russian Federation, you like to gallivant in the fields looking for game to hunt.

Half naked.

When you're no longer the possessor of a fit, tight physique!

What 2050 could hold in store for SE Louisiana



From Richard Campanella's book, Time and Place in New Orleans.
Areas in blue are less than 1 ft above today's sea level.
 
Due to climate change and local subsidence, southeast Louisiana could look like this in 2050, especially if the levees fail in Orleans and Jefferson parishes before then, and the submerged lands are abandoned because because of no money, or worthless money.

What to Do with an Old Wal-Mart.

Now, all they need to do is to rezone the area so that a neighborhood or town center can grow up around it.

Texas town comes up with the best use for an old Walmart: a public library!


5.6 Percent Unemployment is a LIE!

So says the CEO of the Gallup Corporation, which conducts polling.

"Here’s something that many Americans -- including some of the smartest and most educated among us -- don’t know: The official unemployment rate, as reported by the U.S. Department of Labor, is extremely misleading.

"Right now, we’re hearing much celebrating from the media, the White House and Wall Street about how unemployment is “down” to 5.6%. The cheerleading for this number is deafening.

"None of them will tell you this: If you, a family member or anyone is unemployed and has subsequently given up on finding a job -- if you are so hopelessly out of work that you’ve stopped looking over the past four weeks -- the Department of Labor doesn’t count you as unemployed."

Neither do they count anyone who does at least of one hour of work in a week and are paid at least $20.00.

Nor do they count people who are working part time but want a full-time job.

"The official unemployment rate, which cruelly overlooks the suffering of the long-term and often permanently unemployed as well as the depressingly underemployed, amounts to a Big Lie."

A big, FAT lie.
