It depends, Xavier. Is the bum talented and good-looking?

Seriously, though, it relates to a blend* of familiarity and fondness.
You might not know someone personally but like or dislike him based on his work. Say, for instance Heath Ledger or Strom Thurmond.

You might know someone but not be particularly close to him. "Did you hear Bob in Accounting fell down the elevator shaft?"

Then there are those you don't know and haven't even heard of. The obituaries are chock full of those every day. Even those can spark an emotional response. A 90-year-old woman dies peacefully in her sleep, versus a drunk driver rearends a car, killing the children in the back seat.

What am I rambling on about? I dunno. Just thinkin'.

*what I like to call fondiliarity

It sucks that Phelps's legal team is second to none so nobody can even tell them to fuck off without getting some stupid lawsuit in their face.

The funniest part is that the actions of half of these super conservative evangelical hatemongers are simply projections/reaction formations of their own secret desires.

Sounds like Mark Weaver, one of Austin's own anti-gay anti-porn activists. The type of guy who would picket an AIDS walk in the 80s. At any rate, he apparently had an absolutely first rate massive collection of porn himself.

One funny story I found about him. He was infamous for carrying a sign with him everywhere he went that said "Gay is not OK". So at one bookstore in Austin they sold a t-shirt that said "Gay is not OK" in block letters just like his sign. Then in bright pink below that, it'd continue "It's fabulous...".

Huh. And for a random Rocky Horror connection:

Apparently Heath Ledger's house in Brooklyn was purchased from Little Nell. She sold it to him when she decided to move back to Australia. Little Nell was born in Sydney, Heath Ledger in Perth.

well, it's always a shame when a very talented person dies, and it's always more of a shock. like in the back of our minds being talented and/or important makes you sort of immortal...

Yes, Kerry Ann, I totally agree. Actually, I think no time would be proper for John Gibson's hate-filled comments. Humor is one thing, but Mister Gibson's behavior has proven him time and again to have no shred of human compassion or decency.

This is only the latest in his long list of verbal crimes against humanity.

I think John Gibson should be drawn, quartered, tarred, feathered, and ground up in a rusty meat grinder. I despise him and FOX news.

John Gibson should never have been given any air time to begin with, but he is only one in a long list of despicable people using our public air waves to spew hate-filled bile.

If you would like some links to groups opposing this sort of broadcasting, which goes on all day every day, I can find them; there are many good people trying to restore balance and human dignity.

Perhaps the RHPS bulletin board is not the right place for a list of such links.

There are plenty of folks who do not like seeing our children bombarded with hate-filled rhetoric, even when it calls itself "fair and balanced."

Love and Peace from David
