Post Gazette Kisses White House Ass, Fawns Over Local Sibs

Thanks to the Post-Gazette, we now know to avoid Chocolate Celebrations and the Milkshake Factory on Southside.  It is the family business of siblings Chris and Dana Edwards, both of whom are proud members of the Bush Administration.  Dana coordinates POTUS travel and Chris, who bears the title SPECIAL assistant to the President, oversees logistics […]

Catherine Specter should work for the Mt. Lebanon School District

This week Catherine Specter starts off strong with a well-phrased dose of withering advice for a woman manipulating her husband with a “did he notice my haircut?” test.  Nicely done.  Could I be wrong about Specter's Carrie Bradshaw ambitions? Not so much. In the next letter, a reader asks whether a lack of compliments from a […]

Unintended Casualties: Another Example of Anti-Gay Impact on Unsuspecting Heterosexuals

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

PG writer Sally Kalson tackles the thorny issues of surrogate pregnancy custody in response to a recent court ruling removing custody of triplets from their surrogate mother.  It is a complicated, sticky mess and certainly deserving of some attention for our legislature. However, PA plans to establish a legal framework in surrogacy matters will tap into […]

Update on PA Marriage Amendment – good news

From The Center for Lesbian and Gay Civil Rights comes word that the Pennsylvania House of Representatives has recessed without taking action on the amendment. What exactly does that mean? For one thing,  your legislator is home in your district for the next month.  This is a good time to contact her/him in person AGAIN and […]

Given that women's hoops are fairly popular around here, I expected  … well, something!  Between the lesbians, the parents of high school players, the Pitt b-ball fans, and those who actively support the criminalization of […]

Mary Cheney – Republican Princess of Collusion

How could I not post this (Mike Tidmus blog)  

Corresponents Enjoy Listening to Eve Goodman

Last night, we took a drive into Regent Square to hear singer/songwriter Eve Goodman perform at the Square Cafe.    She's great.  We heard about her performance through a local Queer Events email list and thought it sounded like a nice evening.  So off we drove.  It was well worth the $98.34 in gas (kidding).  🙂 Eve […]

2 Political Junkies Call Out Santorum’s Family Value Hypocrisy

Today my good friend David over at 2 Political Junkies has an excellent skewer of Ricky Sanctimonious' <gasp> HYPOCRISY.  Apparently, Ricky is willing to support Republican Don Sherwood who acknowledged that he had a five year affair and settled a lawsuit with his lover after she accused him of choking her.  Ahem.  David does a […]
