Paging Mark Steyn

From the National Law Journal:

How gay is gay enough?

Isn’t it ironic . . . don’t you think?

The National Center for Lesbian Rights last week sued the North American Gay Amateur Athletic Association for discriminating against bisexuals. The lawsuit stems from the 2008 Gay Softball World Series, which was organized by the athletic association and held in Seattle. It alleges that the athletic association’s “two heterosexuals per team” cap violated Washington state’s laws prohibiting discrimination in public accommodation. According to the suit, a softball team from San Francisco came under suspicion of having more than two straight players, prompting organizers to interrogate five players about their sexual orientation and private lives before a group of 25 people. A panel of athletic association members then voted that three of them were not gay.  The team was forced to forfeit its second-place finish in the tournament.  The suit seeks monetary damages and suspension of the rules that limits the number of heterosexuals allowed on each team.”

The Gun-Control Debate Could Break America

Last night, the nation witnessed what looked a lot like an extended version of the famous “two minutes hate” from George Orwell’s novel 1984. During a CNN town hall on gun control, a furious crowd of Americans jeered at two conservatives, Marco Rubio and Dana Loesch, who stood in defense of the Second ... Read More
