see if i've got this straight [ha].
1. boy scouts refuse membership to gay men because, as we all
know, gay is bad and unamerican and against what the scouts stand for. plus,
gay is equivalent to pedophile, so if gay men were alowed to be scout
leaders they'd sleep with the little boys.
2. the supreme court rules that the boy scouts are within their
rights to exclude membership because they are a private organization.
3. some schools decide to no longer allow the boy scouts to use
the school for meetings since they are discriminatory and discrimination is
4. jesse helms decides discrimination is ok, as long as it is
against gay people, and says, oh yeah?!?!? well. we won't give your school
any funding if you don't allow the boy scounts to use the space. take THAT.

smoking peyote and someone just says, "hey, you know what would be *really*
cool, is if we took shark hooks, hooks designed for the catching and innard
ripping of big fiersome *sharks*, and stabbed them through the skin on our
backs!" this conversation must, of course continue with, "Yeah, that'd be
great! Hey, I bet it would be even *better* if we hung ourselves by them,
or dragged each other, or other heavy objects around with them, wow, that
would be REALLY useful!!!"

no. he also co-authored Radical E: From

must read. apparently, we're one of "nine of what the author considers to be

they've embraced a radical approach to e-business, emphasizing
