Will Rev. Martin Luther King Inspire President Obama to 'Evolve' on LGBT Rights?

Keli Goff | July 7, 2012 | Politics
Nearly half the American population does not support gay marriage, but many are getting there. The president appears to be one of them, but he won't get there through political bullying. But since he is a well-known believer in Dr. King's dream, I am pretty sure his evolution will continue.

Anna Brand | July 7, 2012 | TV
Don't get too comfortable. The most frightening moment is upon us, I fear: Julie's departure. B doesn't delve into when and where this is happening, but she does hint at it enough to keep me trembling at the inevitable breakdown that will no doubt occur.

Today I'm Wearing

Vivian Ho | July 7, 2012 | UK Style
Even though every pore of my being was willing me to wear black today (thank you, weather), I rebelled against my inclination and did the complete opposite and went all out in the colour department! The silk shirt is from Alice + Olivia and it came in a hot pink...

'856 Feet Away...': My Grindr Experiment

DJ Louie XIV | July 7, 2012 | Gay Voices
It goes without saying that this was one of the most awkward experiences in my already-pretty-awkward life, but I knew right away that I was happy I did it. Mainly, I had achieved one of my main goals with the experience, which was to get a sense of my own sexual boundaries.

President Obama Does a bin Laden End-Zone Dance

Rabbi Shmuley Boteach | July 7, 2012 | Politics
What a difference one year makes. Last year I praised President Obama for not wanting to "spike the football" by releasing gruesome death photos of Osama bin Laden. But this year, forget spiking the football. The president is doing an end-zone dance.

Will Romney Have a 'Sister Souljah Moment'?

Chris Weigant | July 7, 2012 | Politics
Mitt Romney, so far, has shown precious little backbone for taking on his party's fringe in any way. Just today, the news broke of a person at a question-and-answer session saying Obama should be "tried for treason," and Mitt didn't even blink (much less counter the suggestion).

Guy Finley | August 9, 2012 | Healthy Living
Your experience of any moment -- good or bad, calm or conflicted -- is a direct reflection of your understanding about it. This means that the only thing that frightens you about any event is what you've yet to understand about yourself.

Fat-Free Half-and-Half?

Dr. Andrew Weil | July 7, 2012 | Healthy Living
No one's health is improved by swapping out natural saturated or monounsaturated fats for skim milk, sugars or processed grains. So if you encounter misbegotten products such as fat-free half-and-half, do what I do -- leave them on the shelf.

Enough Already With LOL

John Blumenthal | July 7, 2012 | Comedy
Very few people laugh out loud, especially at Facebook entries, most of which are insufferably mundane and usually not even remotely humorous. One has to wonder why people feel compelled to inform their friends that "I put my shirt on backwards this morning! LOL."
