Kickball Lexington

In the middle of downtown Lexington is this huge empty lot where once stood 14 historic buildings. They were torn down to build at 35 story building that honestly should be done or almost done by now. It was meant for the World Equestrian Games which start next year.

Where it's a big old dirt lot still, so a group of peeps went and played kickball on the lot. They were shooed away by police.

Now the Webb Bros. have built something there: two wooden signs that say "Coming Soon" with security cameras hanging off the back.

I vote there should be a park there - and I agree - it should be the Wendell Berry Park!

Gay-themed library?

(Doing a Google image search for "gay-themed library," I got a picture of Naked Books Singing. Woot!)
In decades past, when gay residents wanted to find books about their community they had to borrow from friends or from a closet where some were stored at a gay-friendly church.

But the gay-themed library in Broward is now out of the closet.

On Thursday, the Stonewall Library and Archives, a collection of gay-themed material that was the subject of political controversy two years ago, celebrated its grand opening in Fort Lauderdale.

The new location is a sign of how mainstream the gay community has become in Broward: the gay library shares a building with a county library and ArtServe and is situated on the edge of a city park where children play ball and seniors gather for tennis lessons.

Obama at The Day of Remembrance

"To this day, there are those who insist the Holocaust never happened - who perpetrate every form of intolerance — racism, antisemitism, homophobia, xenophobia, sexism, and more — hatred that degrades its victim and diminishes us all. Today, and every day we have an opportunity, as well as an obligation to confront these scourges. To fight the impulse to turn the channel when we see images that disturb us, or wrap ourselves in the false comforts that others' sufferings are not our own..."

Thank you, Towleroad

Tudors: Tallis and Compton

Between journeys to the bathroom, I got to watch 3 episodes of First Season Tudors and was pleasantly surprised to find William Compton chatting up Thomas Tallis.

Apparently this had gotten quite a few peeps in a snit, but really, it is so easy for most fuckheads to get into snits anyway.

The Grynne: Defending Thomas Tallis:

Why not? It's historical fiction we're dealing with here. Isn't that an invitation to make historical characters more relatable? That means inventing the personal lives of figures that we only have public record to go on.

Personally, I enjoyed the relationship because a) I found both Tallis and Compton very sympathetic in their own right, b) they provided an interesting counterpoint to Henry's equally adulterous, equally uneven in terms of social power, but far more mercenary, relationship with Anne Boleyn, and c) compared to the treatment of Henry/Anne, and Brandon/Margaret, it was downright tasteful, even sweet.

Grand Jury Indicts Suspect in Slaying

A Fayette County grand jury indicted the man accused of fatally shooting his ex-boyfriend in the Lexington Green parking lot last month.

Toby Ray Lasure was indicted on charges of murder, wanton endangerment, fleeing police and leaving the scene of an accident in relation to the shooting death of Christopher Tolliver, 31.

Police say Lasure, 31, shot Tolliver twice on March 5 in the parking lot of The Mall at Lexington Green, off Nicholasville Road. Lasure led police on a chase that ended with a three-hour standoff at The Ridge Behavioral Health System, a psychiatric and chemical dependency treatment center at 3050 Rio Dosa Drive, near Man o' War Boulevard.

Police say Lasure spoke with investigators after the shooting and confessed several times. He allegedly said Tolliver told him "hurtful things."

Friends and relatives of Tolliver have said he had broken up with Lasure, whom he met around Thanksgiving last year.

There are four counts in the Indictment:

Count 1--Murder...Class A Felony
Count 2--Fleeing or Evading Police...Class D Felony
Count 3--Wanton Endangerment...Class D Felony
Count 4--Leaving the Scene/Failure to render aid...Class A Misdemeanor

In Front of McDonalds

Boo and I went to Chipotle for lunch and saw this in front of the McDonald's next door.

PETA is protesting McDonald's method of slaughtering their chickens by boiling them alive.

I fucking hate McDonald's!

On a happier note, after seeing this, I saw a man run out into the street trying (successfully) to save two baby bunny rabbits!

Slumdog Pussycat

Love this song, but I have a concern about the Pussycat Dolls - a concern I've always had about the Pussycat Dolls.

Why isn't it Pussycat Doll - singular? After all the Nicole Scherzinger is obviously the only one with talent while the others in the back can barely keep up the dancing. If it is so easy to have an entourage of cracked out stripper dancers why can't I have one?

And since when did Darryl Hannah as Pris join the crew (she the dancer just to left of Nicole in the horrible loose white pirate shirt - and what's up with that shirt?)?

Then there is Nicole herself. She does have talent - that doesn't mean she should be allowed to dress herself.
