First, a little housekeeping. I’m traveling today for a debate between Maggie Gallagher and Andrew Sullivan hosted by OUTLaw at Washington & Lee Law School, where I spoke last year, so Thursday’s Meme will be crowdsourced while I recover from the experience. But I hope to come back with some great material. Conveniently timed to Sarah Palin hosting The Today Show, Levi Johnston announced that his 20-year-old schoolteacher girlfriend is pregnant. Can someone teach him what causes that before we’re overrun with little Johnstons? Fox News claims that the International Security Assistance Force is investigating that Pride flag flying over Afghanistan. I’m not sure what’s to investigate, it’s either there or it isn’t. I find this debate over internet curators interesting, because that’s always been what I considered myself to be, reading, finding, and sharing. The main thrust of the argument seems to have centered around the idea that there should be a structure or code to how you link back, but to me, and others, the important thing is that you tease the story and link, encouraging others to visit the source that does the original reporting. Do you guys think that’s what I do? Is it fair to the creators? Lambda Legal is suing a high school in Ohio for twice telling a boy he couldn’t wear his “Jesus Is Not a Homophobe” t-shirt, and telling him he would be suspended if he wore it again. VH1 has greenlit Bounce, a series starring Dean Cain as a basketball coach. The show will actually center around the basketball dance squad that supports the team, so I’m assuming that it’s not balls that are going to bounce. The Media Access Project, long fighting to get diverse views on the air and fighting against media consolation, is folding after 38 years of work due to funding issues. Brian Johnson, who has been disrupting Pride in Minneapolis for years by handing out Bibles and proclaiming homosexuality is a sin, is suing the city because they set up a protest pen to keep him in. He claims that despite Pride paying for the park and paying for security, keeping him in a designated area infringes on his freedom to be an asshat. Protestors are routinely kept in designated areas at events, so I’m not sure how this is illegal. At Pride in Charleston last year, the Bible thumpers marched (with police protection) before the parade, not during it. Pinhead is getting his own sitcom. Variety says that Hellraiser is to be a television series, and a comedy at that. The Advertising Standards Board in the UK is investigating the Coalition for Marriage because of ads claiming that 70% of Britons oppose marriage equality. As an American, it seems weird to require truth in advertising for politics, but it could be fun to watch. Meanwhile, on this side of the pond, the New York Times rips the National Organization for Marriage for their memos seeking to exploit race and families to stop equality in Maine, and isn’t pulling punches that NOM is a grassroots organization without influence. ” These are not the musings of a marginalized group. The day after the memos became public, National Organization for Marriage’s co-founder and chairman emeritus, Robert George, was appointed by John Boehner, the Republican House speaker, to a United States commission focused on addressing religious intolerance and extremism around the globe.” David Letterman and Craig Ferguson have both signed new two year deals to continue their late night shows. The deal for Letterman should allow him to surpass his icon, Johnny Carson as the longest running late night host. The ancient battle between cats and watermelons. Jenna Talackova, the transgender beauty contestant recently disqualified from the Miss Universe pageant in Canada , may be back in, if she meets the Canadian government gender recognition requirements.
