Rainbow flag

Conservative bigots say what?

So when the gay kids complained they weren't allowed to participate in the Boy Scouts, the radical right said, "There are plenty of other alternatives! Go somewhere else!" Now that the BSA may let local groups set their own policies, are we allowed to say the same? Or does that shoe not fit their other foot?

Downton Who?

Although it was great fun watching William Hartnell in "Doctor Who" on Sunday, I was flipping over to "Downton Abbey" quite a bit. Although I already knew the plotlines, I found a hilarious summary online and had to share this bit (no spoilers, really):

"So, while Cousin Isabel is home eating Ethel’s oven gristle and Hot Pockets, the rest of the Crawleys are at Downtown Arby’s celebrating the impending birth of Sybil and Branson’s wee babe with Doctor Lord Flipcup Tapwater. Old Man Clarkson is there as well at the insistence of Lady Elizabeth McGovern, though Dr. Lord Tapwater and Earl Grantham were in agreement that the aged quack ought to be kept out of the birthatorium."
