I have a new piece in the New York Daily News today:
"Gays Should Play it Straight When Seeking Support for Marriage Rights"
"If gays want equal treatment, they need to avoid the trap of demanding preferential treatment, which is what the Chicago bars are doing. Any bar owner who banned homosexuals would be rightly accused of discrimination. Banning straight-women-who-may-be-getting-married-soon is just as insipid. And stupid."

"Drew's platform should give Palm Springs a real reason to unseat former N.O.W. president Ginny Foat. And not because he is running as a 'gay candidate.' He's running as a pro-business candidate in a town (and state) that is feeling the economic crisis harder than others."

New piece up on Newsmax:
"Why Republicans Shunned Obama's Judicial Pick"
"Praying in the name of Allah doesn’t advance a particular religion? I’m totally unfamiliar with Allah’s secular identity. Is 'Allah' also a pagan deity? Is 'Allah' also god of NASCAR or the iPod? Why would someone want to silence a majority in favor of the few? Luckily, the ruling was overturned by the very court to which Judge Hamilton stands to be appointed."

"If it looks like there's an identity crisis within the Catholic contingent, there is - but the divisive episode at Notre Dame was hardly the catalyst. This is a continuation of problems Catholics faced during this presidential campaign and campaigns past, and it's hurting their message and their influence."

I have a new piece on Newsmax: "Recession as the New 9/11?"
"As a justification for the continued theft of taxpayer money to help fund various non-emergency pork projects, President Obama's Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, prone to crude linguistic spasms and metaphorical mustache-twirling, devilishly admitted way back in November, "You never want a serious crisis to go to waste." (And an evil cackle was heard all the way to Smurf Village.)"

New piece up on Sports Illustrated online:
"How an American banker becomes a Fulham fan is anyone's guess -- in Lyle's case it was somewhat capricious, if a little embarrassing. "I wanted to follow a team in London so I could travel somewhere good to see them. My idiot friend had a crush on Carlos Bocanegra, so at her urging I went with Fulham." In the interest of full disclosure, I am said "idiot friend."

Hardly a rave review from Michael White, Guardian UK political blogger...where's that Obamian charm we've heard so much about? Some excerpts:
"After all the adulation and the hatred, you have to reassure yourself the new president of the United States is just a man struggling to do his best."
"What that means is that he thinks before he feels, unlike George Bush, unlike Bill Clinton, too, I suspect. "
"Obama did not light up the gilded pomp of the Locarno Room at the Foreign Office where the hacks had been waiting two hours, a security-driven feature of dealing with a US president for many years now. He looked tired – not much evidence of his famous cool on this occasion – and did not smile much, though he does do humour and made a couple of decent jokes."
"Whatever family hostility we suspect the half-Kenyan president harbours towards the British Empire – his autobiography contains several sharp passages – he buried it. War and peace, thick and thin, a kinship of ideals as well as interests ... he laid it on with a trowel, though not with discernible warmth."
