Aren't We A Little Old for That?

Yesterday my Personal Care Assistant (PCA) Ann Ledwell had her mom call me to say that she couldn't come into work for me last night. I mean I'm sorry, but she's 28 and has a 3 year old, why does she still need mommy to call and say she can't come to work, especially after she (Ann) talked to me 20... Sign in to see full entry.

Atttention George W. Bush: Abstinence Only Education Short Changes Youth

While I have many reasons to be annoyed with George W. Bush ( the long term care fiasco, the Iraq war, loss of civil liberties, taxes cuts for the rich… ), the President’s brand of sex education (which has long concerned health educators and youth advocates) is downright DANGEROUS. As a health... Sign in to see full entry.

My PCA, who I normally really like, was annoying me this week. On Monday, she tells me she doesn't think bisexual people can be loyal partners and that I somehow "learned" my same sex-attractions. I knew I like both genders when I was nine, long before I had intercourse or even kissed anybody. On... Sign in to see full entry.

Why Do These People Keep Bothering Me?

I’ve found Craigslist to be a lovely little corner of the internet were folks who need just about anything can find someone willing to provide them with it. There are Craigslists for just about everywhere in the United States, as well as several non- US locales Check out the one nearest you if you... Sign in to see full entry.

Poor Forum Form or {S}he IS a Right-wing Nut & I Don't Mean Figuratively

This is the message I posted yesterday on the UMass forum of the Daily Jolt, a student website serving UMass (my school) and various other schools throughout the nation. I copied my entry exactly except to italicize the text. Note my poor spelling skills, which I surely would have fixed if I’d... Sign in to see full entry.

I am not one to complain about the untoward behavior of my colleagues in the town square of any community I belong to, including a virtual one. I think it's tacky and creates rifts in the social network. When someone calls me a terrorist, however, I feel I must respond. According to conservative... Sign in to see full entry.

Vacuums and Homophobia-- Two Losers This Week

Honestly, it surprises me how much I encounter various forms of bigotry while trying to go about my day-to-day business without bothering anyone. Today, for example, all I was trying to do was buy a vacuum. There is an entire store devoted to vacuums (something I would never have imagined existing)... Sign in to see full entry.

There is No Blogit Conspiracy Against You!

This column has always been my most popular and I can’t help but wonder if it will be after this post. However, I have never been one to censor my own opinions for money, popularity, or anything else. I see no reason to start now. Drum role, please! The people who irritated me the most this week are... Sign in to see full entry.

The Springfield Police

I don't know much about it, but according to an e-mail I received the Springfield, MA police have arrested my friend Michaelann and charged her with assaulting an officer, among other things. Michaelann is an activist and organizer of poor people, as well as a poor person herself. She is also... Sign in to see full entry.
