That was Ann Richards who made the "silver foot" remark... in her Keynote Address at the Democratic National Convention. I remember it clearly...."Pooooore George, he was born with a ....etc"
Although Molly Ivins may have suggested it. She and Ann Richards were very close friends.
Molly Ivins was high on my hero list. She deserves an immortal spot for declaring George W. was born with a silver foot in his mouth.
Daniel, there ARE some sane people in Texas (Steph is one), but so far they are a minority, and are usually not in positions of power.
I can't express how much I miss Molly Ivins and former Gov. Ann Richards.....
That last paragraph should be in quotes - the words from the article, not mine.
Felaine, that is an excellent speech. He said it better than I ever could!
Some topics I have been mulling over on my reader - not a digest, but things I have been reading.
Church forced to close after forcing gay choir director to quit. It doesn't look 100% clear cut. I have seen that kind of discrimination and harassment myself - piling on the work, other mistreatment, but no one actually says "this is because you are gay". The congregation seemed to think that was the reason, 80% left the church - acting like christians should? - and now the church will close.
Justice Clarence Thomas - of all people - declined to continue the stay preventing gay marriage in Florida. FL atty general - who has been divorced twice and is on her 3rd marriage, has been strongly defending traditional marriage with her court activities, if not in her personal life. The article suggests that is a favorable sign the Supreme Court would rule favorably as a whole.
In Egypt,a reporter turned informant to police, leading to arrests of unlear # of men, more than 20 to more than 30, for sexual conduct - which may or may not have involved money. More than 150 LGBT arrests in Egypt in the past 18 months.
The refusal from the Supreme Court to stay same-sex marriages in Florida is noteworthy because although justices have denied similar requests to halt same-sex marriages in Alaska, Idaho, South Carolina and Kansas, they’ve never done so before in a state where a federal appeals court has yet to rule on the issue. The decision with regard to Florida could be a sign the Supreme Court is ready to rule in favor of nationwide marriage equality no matter what the federal appeals courts decide in the interim.
An EXCELLENT speech on human rights by the mayor of Plano,TX

There is nothing more frightful than ignorance in action. ― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
WHAT are these killers afraid of? That has always puzzled me. I have never heard of any GLBTs att
One of my favorite (fiction) authors has stressed over and over in his stories that hate and anger are fear "in drag." I know he's right on that.
I have never heard of any LGBTs attacking, beating killing str8s....except in very rare cases of self defense. (I do remember Stonewall; I knew a few guys who were involved in that rebellion... and the police deserved it.)
It's about as rare as atheists and/or humanists starting wars on religionists.... the believers always attack first. Their buybull tells them to kill anyone who is the slightest bit different from the majority in any way..
"A grand jury has indicted five members of the Word of Faith Fellowship Church on charges that they kidnapped and assaulted a gay man because of his "sinful" sexual orientation."
We'll see how that goes.
