10 Random Facts

  1. I love Bruce Springsteen. Radio Nowhere, Tunnel Of Love, I'm On Fire, and Jungleland are my favorites by him.
  2. I prefer most of the food I eat to be close to room temperature, I do not like most things too hot or too cold. Coffee is probably the exception with hot as I prefer it scalding, and I don't like ice in any of my drinks.
  3. A fire in a fireplace or outside in a fire pit is one of the most simple ways to make me feel content.

  7. If I scratch the inside of my belly button just right with my fingernail, I can feel it in my penis. I only know of one other man on earth who has this ability also.

First-graders attend lesbian wedding
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 11 (UPI) -- A group of San Francisco first-graders took a field trip to City Hall to attend the marriage of their lesbian teacher.

The students from the18 Creative Arts Charter School students took a city bus to City Hall to toss rose petals and blow bubbles on their just-married teacher Erin Carder and her wife Kerri McCoy, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Saturday.

The newspaper reported that a parent came up with the idea for the field trip, which was a surprise for the teacher.

The school's interim director Liz Jaroflow said the field trip was educational.

"It really is what we call a teachable moment," Jaroflow said.

The class junket drew criticism from proponents of Proposition 8, which would outlaw same-sex marriage in California.

"It's just utterly unreasonable that a public school field trip would be to a same-sex wedding," said Chip White, spokesman for the Yes on 8 campaign. "This is overt indoctrination of children who are too young to have an understanding of its purpose."

An overt indoctrination of children who are too young to have an understanding of its purpose? No, that's what church is for. Besides, it was a suggestion made by the parents, and none were forced to attend without the express permission of their parents.

I hate the perpetually stupid. DIAF, stupid people.
