Survey says!

phone-survey

So yesterday I did something I rarely do…  I picked up my ringing landline phone at home, even though the caller ID was unclear about who was calling. I’m glad I did, because I think I got to skew a conservative, oil-industry survey.

I’m pretty sure I was speaking with a woman in a call center somewhere in India. Her accent was pretty thick, and I had to ask a couple of time for her to repeat what she said. Except for the language barrier, the survey went pretty well. For me, anyway. I’m sure whoever sponsored the call isn’t going to be happy with my responses.

I’ve been Bouska’d! Start the clock…

Leave a comment

Friday the 13th.  Not scary at all.  A bit nervous, perhaps, meeting a photographer of Adam Bouska’s caliber, and having him take my picture, but that went well, and the ominous date faded to a faint memory as the event kicked off (not that I’m superstitious or anything).  Adam is a friendly guy, obviously talented (look at the NOH8 pics!), and he and his team have the shoots humming along like a well-oiled machine.  Even got a hug at the end of my shoot!  He and his partner are both genuinely nice, friendly guys, and made all of us feel at ease, even as they kept the line moving.  With almost 800 people who Facebooked a RSVP to attend, there’s a lot of pictures to take!

If you’d like to have your picture taken, be sure and check out the NOH8 Campaign‘s site, and see if they’re coming to a city near you soon!  If so, get in line like the rest of us, and join in the campaign.

Visalia Couple Do The "Impossible" - for 35 years One of the most common untruths, especially in the religiously fundamentalist worldview, and even among many in the gay community, is that homosexual men are unable to form long term, stable, loving relationships.  “Studies”, using information from 50 years ago (and concentrating only on men – apparently lesbians are invisible in these “studies”), are used to support the lie that gay men are emotionally damaged, fragile, and unable to love.  Well … Read More

Don Imus has surprised me!  Someone on Fox that DOESN’T parrot the right wing line!  There may be hope for them yet!

Catholic Bishop orders communion withheld

Leave a comment

I’ve posted a blog at TulareCountyAtheists.com about Rhode Island’s Bishop Thomas Tobin and his recent order to deny communion to Representative Patrick Kennedy.  Kennedy recently voted against the Stupak amendment to the health care bill currently before Congress, and the Bishop decided that this meant Kennedy was supporting abortion in violation of the Church’s orders to Catholic politicians.  Read my blog here.
