    Not all grown men are suave, sexy, progressive George Clooney/Viggo Mortensen/Colin Farrell lookalikes with sharp blue eyes, stubbly outgrowths and abs like World Cup forwards, all hearts of gold, full heads of hair and perfectly sculpted genitalia custom designed to satisfy a small harem, make birds sing and goddesses purr. Not all adult men are strong and dependable, loyal and true, able to make you laugh, sigh, moan, buy you a drink, jump start your Mini in the rain, smell good all over, build a deck, parallel park a tractor-trailer, and feel sufficiently secure in their masculinity and humanity to...

    John Lennon once wrote that "All you need is love." If that's the case, former presidential candidate Al Gore is a happy man. He is in the middle of a media lovefest celebrating his work, his career - even his efforts as actor, author, dancer and comedian. The former vice president has both a movie and a book about global warming debuting under the title "An Inconvenient Truth." He has gone from media darling to "the summer's most unlikely movie star," as NBC's Katie Couric called him in a May 24 interview. Gore, who Couric also called "funny, vulnerable, disarming,...

    A "gay rights for LBGT families" group plans on creating a public relations firestorm by crashing the annual White House Easter Egg hunt. A group calling itself Soulforce is arranging the event, hoping to steal the spotlight for their groups agenda. "The media will be there (they are always there for the egg roll) and millions of Americans--many for the first time--will meet our families," the Soulforce email explained. "This is an amazing opportunity to reach homes in blue states and red states with positive images of our families participating in this great American family tradition."

    Scientists Trying Prozac To Cure Depression POSTED: 11:06 am EST January 10, 2006 Even hamsters get the blues. Researchers at Ohio State University say they've done a study suggesting the rodents may get depressed during the winter, just as many humans do. They say their findings also seem to show that winter's darker days can weaken the immune system, explaining why illnesses such as the flu occur more often at this time of year. In the study, some hamsters were exposed to 16 hours of light per day, others to just eight hours. After about two months, the researchers found...

    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

    RAMALLAH, West Bank, Jan 5 (Reuters) - He's been a prostitute's rich beau, an officer, a gentleman and a gigolo, but Palestinians can't fathom Richard Gere's latest incarnation as a cheerleader for their elections this weekend. Well known for his vocal support of Tibet's Dalai Lama and celebrated for his captivating good looks, Gere urged Palestinians in a television commercial broadcast ahead of Sunday's poll in the West Bank and Gaza to get out to vote for a new president to succeed Yasser Arafat, who died in November. "Hi, I'm Richard Gere and I'm speaking for the entire world. We're...

    NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) - Once television's fashion sensation, "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" seems to be going out of style. Barely a year after the Bravo series exploded into a pop-culture phenomenon, its ratings indicate that "Eye" has become as passe as white jeans after Labor Day. Viewership for first-run episodes plummeted during the summer by about 40% versus a year ago in the NBC Universal-owned cable network's target demographic, viewers 25-54, as well as 18-49. Tuesday's new episode drew 804,000 in the latter demographic -- its second-lowest yet. There is no shortage of factors that might explain...

Corrine Brown, from Florida, brought the issue up on the floor of Congress, she was actually shouted down by the Republicans, scolded that she was out of order and told her comments should be stricken from the record?

    While certainly not limited to the 20-30 something crowd, viewers of South Park tend to be the latchkey offspring of the infamous Baby Boomers.

"Especially when he's the President of the United States." Gere told...
