Canadian Broadcasting Company

“Porno Pete” LaBarbera tried several times to goad Canadian authorities to arrest him. They finally did.

Pete LaBarbera, head of the Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (an organization designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center in 2010, among others), has the colorful nickname “Porno Pete” among gay and liberal bloggers because he is famous for going to churches and showing…

Rinse, don’t wash

Rinse, don’t wash

This is really close…

One of my grandfathers had a coffee mug that was “his” mug. No one else used Grandpa’s mug. It was a yellow mug, but not a really bright yellow. Very similar to the one pictured here.

It was nearly identical in shape to a set of sage green and brown mugs that matched grandam’s every day plates. That particular shape of stackable coffee mug was very popular when I was a kid.…

FontFolly.Net: Persuadable?

Explaining that he’s “not homophobic,” but believing marriage should be between one man and one woman is being “on the right side of the Bible.”

A 70-year nap sounds tempting

FontFolly.Net: A 70-year nap sounds tempting

We saw Captain America: The Winter Soldier with a bunch of friends Saturday, and it was fun. If you liked the 2011 Captain America movie, or The Avengersyou’ll probably like this, as well. I thought it was awesome. I confess I’d been a teeny bit worried because I liked the previous movie a lot, and that one got so much of its appeal from the 1940s setting; I was afraid they’d try to grit Cap up…

Never thought I’d be happy to do the taxes

FontFolly.Net: Never thought I’d be happy to do the taxes

Us, at our reception.

It isn’t primarily about the legal stuff, of course. Except when it is.

The last few years our taxes have been very unpleasant. When Washington state voters approved the “everything-but-marriage” domestic partnership referendum a few years ago, our separate incomes became community property. The so-called Defense of Marriage Act forbade the federal government from recognizing our relationship,…
