gay policy

Filed under: Uncategorized — Clattery MacHinery @ 12:32 am

sexual harassment&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp will not be tolerated
&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp in the american workplace

this policy includes&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp unwanted advances of
&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp a homosexual nature

since 1964&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp discrimination based on
&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp race, religion, gender, or age

has been deemed illegal&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp and such harassment creates
&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp a hostile work environment

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp a response on gay relations
by the grand ayatollah&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp ali al-sistani

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp confirmed that homosexuals
should be killed in “the worst most&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp severe way of killing”

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp sexually purifying
iraq of gays is a goal&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp of some badr corps cells

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp who also kill unveiled women,
people who wear western clothes&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp and alcohol sellers

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .

it is not illegal&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp in america for you
&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp to ask a same-sex co-worker

for a date while at work&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp if the response is a firm
&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp refusal, you may not tell him

or her that his or her&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp tushy is going to waste
&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp nor may you call him or her ‘bitch’

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp a badr death squad officer,
pretending to be gay, joined&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp an internet chat room

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp and lured 27-year-old
ammar of baghdad into&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp a rendezvous this past

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp january–within the hour,
bound, blindfolded, he was shot&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp in the back of his head

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .

at work, if you witness&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp gay bashing of any kind
&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp your responsibility is

to tell a manager&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp it is both illegal and
&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp against company policy

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp gay iraqi activists plead
with americans in the&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp green zone, but are laughed at

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp current policy being to
not interfere while iraq&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp nears mandating gay deaths

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .

americans must meet&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp in conference rooms to watch
&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp sexual harassment programs

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp iraqi homosexuals
must meet in dimly lit rooms&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp or be killed in pogroms

Will the Soul Patrol get behind Pinsky?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Clattery MacHinery @ 3:47 am

Last week, it was Katharine McPhee & Taylor Hicks.

But it was also Paul Muldoon & Thylias Moss, who each had 15 minutes to write a poem directly following being given the theme. Online right now, you can see how their poems developed on the page, how and when each letter went up, and the editing as it was done.

Tomorrow night at 9:00PM Eastern, it will be Julianna Baggott & Robert Pinsky at Quick Muse.

Read all about it in the NYT here: On Your Marks, Get Set, Poeticize: Dueling Poets on the Web.

Soul Patrol! Whooooo!
