WHY ENUNCIATION MATTERS
THE CASE OF THE VANISHING READERSHIP
We're constantly inundated with top 10 lists that run down must-visit destinations all over the world. One thing we don't get very often is a list of places to avoid. That's why we look forward to the annual human rights report that details those countries that discriminate and abuse their citizens based on sexual orientation.I really hope the passage I bolded above was an attempt at humor that fell flat. If not, some people really need to get out in the world a bit more.
Surprisingly, all of the countries are clustered close to one another. But even with a leader who wants a Constitutional ban on same-sex marriage, the U.S. is not included on the list (well that's because the U.S. State Department put the damn report together). There are places much worse off than our own. Take for example Iran (they kill queers) and Poland (no pride marches for you!).

ALL SEVEN SIGNS OF THE APOCALYPSE HAVE COME AT ONE TIME
A big-screen version of the classic prime-time TV soap opera "Dallas" is in the works, as Hollywood prepares to once again shoot J.R. - but this time, with megastars J.Lo and John Travolta in the lead roles.
Producers want Travolta to fill the role made famous by Larry Hagman, Texas oil baron J.R. Ewing, according to a report yesterday in Daily Variety.
Jennifer Lopez, meanwhile, has been approached to be J.R.'s beauty-queen wife, Sue Ellen, a role played on the 13-season CBS hit by sexy Linda Gray, the showbiz paper said.
The producers, who have lined up J.Lo's "Monster-in-Law" director, Robert Luketic, have asked Luke Wilson to play J.R.'s nice-guy brother, Bobby, originally portrayed by Patrick Duffy...
Oscar-winner Shirley MacLaine, meanwhile, has been asked to play Ewing clan matriarch, Miss Ellie, made famous by Barbara Bel Geddes in the series.

THE BYRNES STYLEBOOK
“The ‘B’ word?” Kitty asked.
“Bitch,” said Dean from his perch at her side.
“Oh… uh… I guess all I can say is this. Quinn is the person who had sex with men in our bed while we were married. Quinn is the person who tricked me into marrying him, even though he was a homosexual. And, after all these years, Quinn is the person who wrote all those nasty words.” Tears appeared in her eyes and her voice cracked. “I was faithful, I married him because I was in love… and, even 36 years after we divorced, I have been discreet and not attacked him.” She looked straight into the camera, her eyes still glistening. “Now you tell me which one of us is manipulative, greedy, and the B word.”
She gasped, and almost swallowed the gum he realized she was somewhat discreetly chewing. “He’s a gay? Quinn Scott is a gay?"
“Gay as, uh, me. And ‘gay’ isn’t a noun, Lindsay.”
She ignored the grammar lesson. “Gay as you? That gay?”
“We want to take advantage of the Quinn Scott story.”
“Quinn Scott. Q.J.’s father?”
MRC thought about that. Something made him uneasy. “Isn’t that the fag?”
Stan Roth cleared his throat. “If you’re asking if Quinn Scott is the gay gentlemen you’ve been hearing about lately, then the answer is yes.”
