Reade Seligmann testified how he was sure that the DNA tests would clear his name. He broke into tears during his testimony, while he described finding out that he had been indicted and thinking about how he was going to manage breaking that terrible news to his mother. Immediately following the conclusion of Seligmann’s testimony, Nifong voluntarily resigned as the Durham County Prosecutor.

The full video is included.

“Steven Colbert: On Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”

“The only thing worse than an al Qaeda attack would be a gay man stopping that,” quipped discharged gay military linguist Stephen Benjamin to Steven Colbert. And that pretty much sums up the core of the stupendously ignorant Republican position on gay people, as stated in the official military personnel policy regarding the Iraq war on terror.

Photographs and Comedy Central video included.

The Paris Hilton, 18 Avenue de Suffren, Paris, France

The Paris Hilton is discretely located on the Left Bank, at 18 Avenue de Suffren, less than 100 meters from the historic Eiffel Tower. Just a stone’s throw from the Champs-Élysées, and overlooking the Champs de Mars, the Paris Hilton Hotel is extremely convenient for all the major museums, sights and Paris attractions. The Paris Hilton is exquisite, although in the past there have been some nasty rumors about her.

My Articles for Monday, June 11, 2007

 

Quoted: The Pentagon’s Gay Smart Bomb Well, Maybe Not So Smart… And from Andrew Sullivan at Atlantic Magazine: “Yes, the military was seriously considering a project for a bomb that could turn enemy soldiers gay, and thereby presumably make them a less lethal foe. This was in 1994. And we wonder why the top brass couldn’t cope with openly gay servicemembers?”

Quoted: A newly redeemed Paris Hilton piously whispers, “I’m not the same person I was. I used to act dumb. It was an act. I am 26 years old, and that act is no longer cute. It is not who I am, nor do I want to be that person for the young girls who looked up to me. I know now that I can make a difference, that I have the power to do that.

“Teddy Pendergrass: In My Time”

This is the story of Teddy Pendergrass, who rose through the ranks of the Philadelphia music scene in the 1960s and eventually became the drummer for Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes. Pendergrass stepped to the front of the Blue Notes as lead singer on hits like If You Don’t Know Me By Now and became a star in his own right with his 1977 solo album, Teddy Pendergrass.

Onstage, he was a dynamic force of sultry sexuality who became famous for his “ladies only” shows where he’d be showered with panties thrown from the audience. That changed on March 18, 1982, when he crashed his Rolls-Royce on Lincoln Drive in Philadelphia.

“The truth of the matter is at the very beginning of your experience, things are very different than what you knew two days ago and it is quite devastating,” said Pendergrass of the accident. “The honest answer is that some people don’t want to deal with it. This is a life altering injury that will change your views, your emotional views, your economical views. It changes everything so when you make a decision to live (with the injury) that means you have to make a decision to say, ‘Well, I’m going to have a road ahead of me but I’m willing to deal with it while I can and make the best of where I am,’ ” he said.

Photographs and music video are included.

“Homelessness as a State of Mind”

For years, Johnny Five lived not on the streets but below them, in the dark underworld beneath an abandoned train station in the Bronx. He had to crawl in the dirt at the edge of a concrete platform to get in and out. This is the heart-wrenching story of Johnny’s attempt to emerge from the world of the homeless, which in the end he could not do. Photographs and video are included.

Ring, Ring, Ring: It’s God Calling Paris

A newly redeemed Paris Hilton piously whispers, “I’m not the same person I was.  I used to act dumb.  It was an act.  I am 26 years old, and that act is no longer cute.  It is not who I am, nor do I want to be that person for the young girls who looked up to me.  I know now that I can make a difference, that I have the power to do that.  I have been thinking that I want to do different things when I am out of here.  I have become much more spiritual.  God has given me this new chance.”

She said she would like to help in the fields of breast cancer, her grandmother had breast cancer or multiple sclerosis.  Her father’s mother suffers from that disease.  She thought she might get toy companies to build a kind of Paris Hilton playhouse, where sick children might come (Oh Michael Jackson…Are you listening?) and the toy companies could donate toys.

She has had a person whom she described as a spiritual adviser who said, “My spirit or soul did not like the way I was being seen and that is why I was sent to jail.”

God,” she said, “has released me.”

She is reading newspapers, The Los Angeles Times, The Wall Street Journal, and books like The Secret, The Power of Now and absolutely, absolutely of course…The Bible.  And finally, Paris devoutly assures the world, “I will never again have a drink and drive.”

Right.  Right to all that.  Yep.
