B.J.'ll get ya Ten

Read this news story.

The courts let some kid go after two years in jail for an act of oral sex with a fifteen year old. He was 17.

I think it's terrible that this poor kid went to jail for two years for this BS.

With that in mind, is it okay for me to find it hilarious that his lawyer's name was BJ?

Or that U.S. Rep. John Lewis said "It's been a long time coming"

And without any puns or double entendres, this is funny:
"a seismic shift in the legislature's view of the gravity of oral sex between two willing teenage participants"

The news is so much more fun when you're immature.

Crybaby Sign

click to enlargeI wish I had more of these babies. They were everywhere, all over town. They're especially nice as they deteriorate. Seeng just the remnants of this crying infant face after it's been baked in the sun and then rained on is quite haunting.

Big Brother?

click image to enlargeI really can't do this guy justice. This wheat paste is huge and it's way up on the wall, but pretty far down from the top, so it must have been tough to place. This dapper fellow looks over the soon to be "revitalized" stretch of R street between 17th and 18th, right behind the 19th street Safeway. It's a favorite.

Blankets by Craig Thompson

I just finished Craig Thompson's graphic novel. What a gorgeous book, and perfect for the cool weather we've been having.
I highly recommend it.
It's a story of first love, alienation and the general beauty and difficulty of growing up.
The book won TONS of awards but thats not important, what is important of course is that I like it, so go get a copy and read it now and tell me how much you loved it, and visit the author's website;

Thanks Craig

Craig to stay on, click here.

Is he one of ours? Gone undercover to help further dismantle the GOP? Awesome.

Keep up the good work secret agent Craig, we love you, (not meet you in the men's room love you, and definitely not vote for you love you but take what you can get you lonely, lonely man.)

All that said, I don't agree with arresting people for the possibillity of having some gay sex. I mean, couldn't you signal someone and then suggest a hotel room? Was something in the signs a blatanst statemnet of his intention to do the deed right then and there? I don't like this homophobic jerk, and I want him to be shown for the creep he is, but I can't be happy about homophobic sting operations even when they hit one of the bad guys.

Okay, now back to laughing at Craig, HA HA HA
