  1. Hey guys. Yea, I know, I know, the phantom pirate strikes again. I've been absent a long time. But, I've been really busy... at least I have a good excuse. See my new blog entry. Anyhow, If anyone is looking for a new book. I have co-authored a new book that is being PUBLISHED. YES! on paper. I have co-written a book with Adam Donaldson Powell entitled "Tunnel at the End of Time" and it is published and right now available through the publisher's web site at www.cyberwit.net . It should be available at Amazon.com sometime later. Hugs, Rick
  2. Wow! Didn?t realize it had been so long since I had posted here?. Well? when you read below, you will see that I?ve been rather busy. After my diagnosis, well, I had to face a few realities. The biggest one was, I was a gay man with AIDS. That is simply not conducive with the fa?ade I had been living for more than twenty years, and yes, in the end it was more than my wife could handle. We had a lot to sort out, I moved into the guest bedroom, and well, yea, we were finally divorced several months ago, and I?m living on my boat. But, it was a VERY friendly divorce, and we are still very c
  3. GREAT NEWS!!! My Friend and former AD hosted author Adam Donaldson Powell and co-author Albert Russo have won a very prestigious international literary award for their book "Gaytude" a collection of bi-lingual (English-French) poetry. "Gaytude is a poetic study of both the universality and the diversity of gay experience ... an experience of confluence whereby individual love, lust and identity are constantly in tandem and conflict with collective mores, customs, codes and trends." http://www.adamdonaldsonpowell.com/gaytude.html here is the link to the award page: http://www.indieexce

  6. You know... I thought after over 30 years, when i went through this same crap in high school, maybe we were getting past it... maybe tolerance and acceptance were becoming more universal.... I guess i was wrong.. http://abcnews.go.com/Health/MindMoodNews/...8335&page=1 hugz all... Rick
  7. President Obama made it very clear last week when he signed the Omnibus Spending Bill that this bill was a relic of the previous administration and that he disagreed with many provisions including many of the earmark provisions, but it's passage was necessary to keep the government running. He did not even have a "public signing" ceremony for this bill. I think we need to give this administration and this new Congress a chance. It takes time. The bill in question was drafted and agreed upon in conference when the Repubs controlled the Senate and White House. The Prez does NOT have line it
  8. You know, there are some articles you have to read twice to see ... "Did he really say that????" :omg: This is one of those times. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090317/ap_on_.../af_pope_africa How do you fight such blind ignorance... None are so blind as those who refuse to see, and none so ignorant as those who refuse to learn. Hugz for us all... we really need them Rick

  14. I agree that Democratic governments should be secular. That is the basis of much of the United States Constitution and its prohibition against state sponsored establishment of religions and the first amendment rights of freedom to worship as one chooses or not at all. This is the "wall of separation between church and state" as the phrase was coined by Thomas Jefferson. With that said, I also am forced to admit that unfortunately conservatives have inextricably linked certain religious views to the issues of gay rights. That's why their attempts to deny equal rights to persons of differen
  15. You guys just don't seem to get it.... I didn't mean to start another discourse on religion or religious intolerance....... It's much deeper than that. In California, it was simply political ignorance of those fighting that ridiculous proposition and failure to be inclusive of blacks and other minorities that helped pass the gay marriage ban. WE CAN NOT just sit on asses and whine about our lack of equal rights. We have to put forth a positive image of ourselves and work together to cross cultural AND religious barriers that stand in the way. It can be done as the following link (artic
