I'm the only one who laughs
at you're jokes when they are so bad
and you're jokes are always bad
but they're not as bad as this

Ed Van der Elsken, Switzerland, 1967

* Top ten conservative idiots. excerpt:

"10. Dennis Gallagher

"And finally, it's time for another round of 'Guess the party affiliation!' The rules are simple: I give you a recent news headline, and you try to guess which political party the person in the headline belongs to. Here we go...

"'Queens Councilman Surrenders To Police'

"Got it yet? We're talking about a New York politician here, so chances are he's a Democrat, right? Perhaps if I give you a bit more detail on the crime of which he is accused, you'll be able to get it.

"'Queens Councilman Dennis Gallagher surrendered to authorities on rape charges on Friday.'

"It was a devastating image. Gallagher surrendered Friday morning at the 112th Precinct. He was led out in handcuffs on the way to his arraignment.

"Appearing before a judge, he pleaded not guilty, and was arraigned on $200,000 bail, much of it put up by his brother.

"Outside, he was greeted by a crush of media. He labored to make his way down Queens Boulevard, accompanied by his wife, who held his hand despite charges he raped a 52-year-old grandmother.

"If you guessed that Dennis Gallagher is a Republican, congratulations! You're right."

* Lee Hazlewood, RIP. Sad, was just listening to Cowboy in Sweeden last night.

* Glenn O'Brien remembers Theresa Duncan. Shortly after learning that Theresa Duncan committed suicide, Jeremy Blake asked Glenn O'Brien to write a eulogy, to be the final post at Duncan's site, The Wit of the Staircase.

* Help Tim, help Sarah (and others) fight diabetes.

* "When the crudity of the sexual act goes through the imagination it becomes eroticism, and when it doesn't, it is pornography." -- Alain Robbe-Grillet, nn the difference between eroticism and poetry.
