[Last Sunday] in Moscow, several dozen homosexual activists who were protesting a ban on a proposed gay-rights parade they would like to organize in the Russian capital "were kicked and punched by anti-gay demonstrators."
[Moscow's mayor Yuri] Luzhkov has denounced homosexuality as "satanic."
Neo-Nazis gathered to publicly protest the idea of any kind of gay-rights parade ever taking place in the city. The shaved-heads-and-tattoos crowd shouted "Glory to Russia!" and made salutes.
Russian Nazis. Ha! Do they betray themselves?
Richard Fairbrass, a gay member of the British pop-music group Right Said Fred who took part in [Sunday]'s march, "was punched in the face and kicked by anti-gay activists" while speaking to a reporter. Reuters notes: "Blood dripped from his face after the attack."

Yulia Volkova, of the Russian pop group Tatu, spoke at a press conference on Saturday in support of the proposed gay-rights parade.
From the looks of things, they're not gonna get it!

I swear to God, there is no place on this planet where people mow their lawns more than my neighborhood. This morning, before 9 AM, I heard four different lawnmowers going off. This happens a few times a week. One guy mows his lawn probably three times a week.

On the season finale of Degrassi, Emma got her period, which dampened my hopes for a pregnant underclassman royal flush (Emma, Manny, Liberty, Darcy, Mia) by series end. C'mon, writers! Go there!
When my boss bends over, I can see his butt crack.
