“JIM (‘I am a gay American’) McGreevey might have a new job soon – as one of the homosexual hosts on the talk show Joan Rivers is launching this fall on Bravo that’s described as a queer version of ‘The View.'”

Let me get this straight:

I have been passed over for stardom in favor of a man who, when he came out to the country, actually said, “I am apologizing for not having had the courage to be open about whom I was”?

Hell in a handbasket, I tell you.

    Honey, you need some scandal. Scandal is the key. I think a well-placed, amateur porn movie might help. 🙂

    My crystal ball tells me that the Bravo show is going to be here and gone so fast that most of the gays will never know it was on.

    The crystal ball also says that something much better is right around the corner!

    Yep, a searingly hot porn movie might just put you over the top, Joel. Where do we send our videography resumes? (I’ll let the “actors” reading this work out their auditions to co-star with you on their own).

    Of course, McGreevey is coming here to Atlanta on a book-signing tour. It would be tragic if he met with a hideously disfiguring (and, with luck, untraceable) accident…..

    You remember the days when being a stripper would be enough scandal to get you some celebrity? Now it’s like, “He’s dancing nude for money? Well, he’ll grow out of it by the time he’s 15.” Frankly, that’s probably made the world a better place.

    The flower stall at my local Tube station regularly offers ‘Lillie’s’ for sale. Have done for years and for years it has been driving me NUTS! Or should that be NUT’S ?

    It is rare that someone misuses ?whom?, but it is incredibly comic and pedantic when it does happen. It annoys me, almost as much as when someone uses an adjective in place of an adverb ? but I don?t take it personal. 😉 However, when someone uses “whom” correctly it is sexier than great abs – and if it is in conjunction with great abs, I begin drooling uncontrolably.

    Hey there. Found your website by…well, to be honest, I don’t know. I really enjoy it. I used to live in NYC and was an actor on Broadway for about 5 years. Got tired of the hustle and bustle and left NYC for ATL. I enjoy your perspective – I had lost mine.

    Looking forward to reading more of your writing. Come visit mine!
