Tonight, at the All Star Game, Major League Baseball will honor a great, brave man -- an athlete who had to hide behind fear and shame while still trying to live up to his God given potential as a ball player.

His name was Glenn Burke and he was shamed...

default


납치된 여학생의 어머니들. 불확실함에 옥죄는 그들의 심정을 어찌 알 수 있을까. 그들은 자신의 자녀가 어디에 있는지도 알지 못한다. 자신의 아이가 다쳤는지, 홀로 고립되어 있는지 역시 모른다. 하지만 아이가 공포에 휩싸여 있다는 것은 안다. 이들의 마음은 상상이 일으키는 공포로 가득하다. 불확실함이 불러일으키는 치명적 독성은 온몸...

Mothers of the Missing

Mothers of the missing. Whose hearts are placed in a vise of uncertainty. Who don't know where their children are. If they are hurt. If they are alone. Who know that their children are living in terror. Whose minds are a horror...

Happy Mother Earth Day?

(47) Comments | Posted April 22, 2014 | 10:34 AM

Would you do this to your own mother?

Would you starve her, ravage her, drill her, strip her, pollute her, poison her, frack her, crowd her, pave her, drain her, extract her, constrain her, imprison her?

We call her our Mother earth for a reason.

She is the source. The...

Mort de Philip Seymour Hoffman: Bonjour tristesse, bonjour la vie

Aujourd'hui, je fête mes quinze ans de sobriété, libérée de l'emprise de mon addiction secrète aux anti-douleurs et à l'alcool.

Je me suis endormie hier soir en imaginant la douleur de la famille, des enfants, des amis, des collègues et des fans de Mr. Hoffman. Son talent, si puissant,...

Good Morning Heartache, Good Morning Life

(112) Comments | Posted February 3, 2014 | 5:09 PM

Today is the fifteenth anniversary of my living clean and sober, free from the grips of a long, secret prescription painkiller and alcohol addiction.

I went to sleep last night imagining the grief of the family, children, friends, colleagues and fans of Mr. Hoffman. His gifts, so powerful, his demons,...

Birth and Death: 11/22/1963

(91) Comments | Posted November 22, 2013 | 7:00 AM

It was my fifth birthday the day JFK was killed in Dallas. I remember nothing about it. My mother was very close to the president and his family -- the Lawfords and the Shrivers -- and had performed with my father at JFK's famous snowed-in inaugural. I understand my birthday...

Till Death Do Us Part

The gay soldier who openly challenged the government military policy of Don't Ask, Don't Tell died yesterday in a traffic accident. He was 36. His name was Darren Manzella. He was married in July. When I read that this morning I thought about courage. His courage to serve...

Freedom of Choice, Freedom of Privacy

Ms. Jolie is a heroine to many. Me included. There are very few public figures who do it all, put their money where their mouth is, suit up and show up and, as Eleanor Roosevelt said, "do the thing you think you cannot do." She is brave and bold and...

Please Let Them Be

Please let them be.

Please allow them to be with their families.

Please let them heal.

Please let them recover and reenter.

Please let them start the long healing process without the media's needs coming first.

Please hope that they get the psychological and spiritual help they need.

Please don't...

Moment de vérité

(3) Comments | Posted May 1, 2013 | 10:02 AM

En 1977, Glenn Burke, un joueur afro-américain pour l'équipe des Dodgers (Los Angeles), et homosexuel dans le placard, a été le premier à faire un "tope là" à Dustin Baker, dans le stade Dodger. Deux ans plus tard, il ne pratiquait plus le baseball, ayant été transféré aux A's de...

Moment of Truth

In 1977, Glenn Burke, an African-American, closeted, gay Dodger, delivered the first ever high five to Dusty Baker at Dodger Stadium. Two years later he was out of baseball, having been traded to the A's and then not played by Billy Martin, who famously said, "I won't play a faggot...

Death and Taxes

April 15 now so sadly known for both. One a privilege for living in a free county, the other perhaps a price.

Images once unprintable now come with a graphic warnings but are accessible and ingrained in our minds. Perhaps it's important to be able to bear witness to the...

And the Oscar Goes to... Hell

(2104) Comments | Posted March 1, 2013 | 6:51 PM

So, I have waited, and tried to communicate this privately, but then I started getting forwarded emails from the Academy of rave reviews of last weekend's disturbing Oscar show. Interesting that they didn't forward any of the numerous negative reviews, such as in The New Yorker and Vanity Fair.

Memories of a Beauty

(32) Comments | Posted November 27, 2012 | 7:24 AM

I knew Deborah Raffin a long time ago, when both our skin was young and taut and her beauty was in full bloom.

She was a well-known model/actress, her jaw-slacking beauty belied her talent. Classic lines and talent to boot.

I knew her first when we both were on Circus...

C'est fini. Avant, le vent et la pluie, maintenant le temps du nettoyage et du séchage.

Nous sommes impuissants de bien des façons mais pas de toutes les façons.

Nous qui ne sommes pas affectés par ce très récent rappel que, malgré toutes nos...

It is over. The wind and rain and now the drain and drying.

Powerless in all ways, but not every way.

We all who are not affected by this most recent reminder that with all of our assumptions of control, we are only human and can only do so much,...

Haven't seen one of those yellow bracelets yet. I'm sure they're coming. We should all wear both of them as we are all both of them, for to LIVE is to LIE.

I'm not suggesting that any of you have lied on that grand scale but true lies are told...

Anti-Anti

Anti: against or preventing

Anti. There are many things I am against. Anti-discrimination. Anti-drug. Anti-oppression. Anti-poverty and sickness. And there are many I am Pro. I am pro-antiperspirant and I am pro-antibiotics and then there are many things I am just pro... pro-biotics (especially yogurt), pro-choice, pro-tein.
