I will never understand the homophobia of some in the Republican party. I am not sure why, if two consenting adults love each other, it is any of the business of anyone else what they do. I know that is a simplistic gut feeling on my part- I can provide more nuanced arguments when I feel better, but when I read stuff like this, it just pisses me off.

And this time we really, really, really mean it.
I am sick as a dog and grading papers, so I am not sure how much I will be posting. I have not felt well since Friday night-Saturday morning.
I didn’t watch much of the Grammy show last night, but not because I was protesting it or afraid of what a few limousine liberals might have to say about Iraq. Basically, I didn’t watch because they never really nominate or reward the type of music I enjoy. I read the results with interest wondering, who the hell buys all this stuff. One strong reaction I do have after reading the results:
I know I am profoundly uncool, but I have never heard of Norah Jones before yesterday. I am unsure how Bruce Springsteen did not win- I am even more confused how Nelly and Eminem were snubbed. When I listen to the radio, it is usually NPR, talk radio, or ESPN Sports radio- so I am not a music expert when it comes to new music. I can tell you one thing though- when I went to a bar, when I went to a clothing store, when I was in a friend’s car, or at the lake, I know what I was hearing- people were playing Nelly and Eminem. Not Norah Jones.
Is it possible that the Grammy voters are more out of touch than I am?
An annotaed bibilography of sorts for the blogosphere.
I know, I have been ignored again. Mere words can not describe this blog, though.
I got my new Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, and there was not one spread of Heidi Klum. I still love you, Heidi.
