Come June, voters here will have a chance to cast their ballots in the presidential primary. Along with their presidential preferences, they will be asked to decide whether actors in pornographic films should be required to wear condoms.
For several years, the AIDS Healthcare Foundation has been lobbying state, county and city lawmakers to enact legislation that would force adult film performers and makers to use condoms and charge a fee to pay for inspections to make sure that they comply.
Growing frustrated in its efforts, the group moved this summer to get the issue placed on the city ballot.
“All politicians have treated this as a hot potato issue,” said Michael Weinstein, president of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation. “The city punts to the county, the county punts to the state, and the State Legislature has punted. We’ve taken it to the voters as a last resort, and that is testimony to the lack of leadership on the issue.”
Los Angeles County officials have said that it would be too difficult to monitor the pornography industry through the health department and that it is a matter for the State Legislature. But Mr. Weinstein said that the group had not been able to find any state lawmaker willing to introduce the bill.
As we all know, it is the New Year. Time to take stock and get rid of old baggage. Figure out what is working and what is not.
So out with Nole Cakes and onto the brother... Marko Cakes!!! An upgraded model. Same DNA with a new look. Kinda like GM builds Chevys but they make Cadillacs too.
Oh, we kid.
We've been through too much with Nole. We could never do that. Keep telling yourself that, sweetie....
We've held back saying anything about Marko because of his age. Now that the lad is 20-- WE AIN'T HOLDING BACK SHIT!!
He is smokin'!! Fuck yeah!! Humina. Humina. HOT! WOOF! ROWR!! Is that how they are making them in Serbia, now?? We want to put in our order, ASAP!!
We could tell he was going to be some serious EYE CANDY and he definitely did NOT disappoint!
We are absolutely TEAM DJOKOVIC at ALL the tourneys from here on out!!
Can you imagine being the middle and youngest brother to Nole? A Wimbledon win and a US Open win. And, a #1 ranking. That is how high the bar is set. Those are some big shoes to fill. What if one doesn't perform to that caliber. They're looking at years of therapy in the future if they fail. Yikes. No thanks, rather marry into the family.
We guess we have been very good this year!! All those rendezvous lunch appointments for some afternoon delight and weekend carnal sojourns to Malibu with our Sugar Daddies have benefits.
Some little gifts arrived.
The Daddies really listen when we say an Apple a day keeps our difficult moods at bay!! (Or did we say, an Apple a day for our perusing moods on Ebay!) Especially, when that Apple has 3G for our Malibu weekends!!
And, nothing gets us in a better mood than that dark navy box hand-delivered from the Ralph Lauren store in Beverly Hills. Tucked inside-- our daddies know what we love--gift cards with sizable amounts for some major damage. A couple of bespoke suits with several French cuff shirts, cuff links and a handful of new ties for drinks with Daddy at the Grand Havana Room. (Daddy doesn't like us looking like a schlub, neither do we, especially when he wants to show us off!!) Or, maybe we'll outfit the home with a couple of chairs, a new bed, fresh linens and brunch china for when Daddy decides to stay overnight on a Saturday.
Our daddies loves nice things!! And, they are really enjoyable when we have nice things on hand to take care of them.
We still have until the 28th when Hanukkah ends, thus we know we have more coming!!
This weekend, we will definitely be taking a field trip to Beverly Center where the Hunky Santas reside.
We'll be sitting and squirming on Hunky Santa's lap (trying to find that sweet spot on his yuletide log) with a very long list and whispering in his ear about how good we've been this year and how bad we can be at night!!
Model James Ellis has been a Hunky Santa in the past (2009).
No caps for scums, they aren't worth the time...brandon mcinerney left the courtroom shackled and handcuffed after the sentencing.
....mcinerney, who was 14 when he pulled a gun out of his backpack and shot King two times at point-blank range, will be kept behind bars until he is 39 under the terms of the deal struck by Ventura County prosecutors.
In an unusual arrangement, the 17-year-old pleaded guilty to the charges after the judge declared a mistrial in his first trial. In return, prosecutors agreed not to go forward with a second trial, which could have resulted in a life sentence.
Christopher Hitchens, the controversial writer and cable TV pundit who took aim at such targets as Bill Clinton, Mother Teresa and organized religion, died Thursday of pneumonia after a long battle with esophageal cancer.
EIC Graydon Carter quips: "There will never be another like Christopher......A man of ferocious intellect, who was as vibrant on the page as he was at the bar. Those who read him felt they knew him, and those who knew him were profoundly fortunate souls."
He was a man of insatiable appetites—for cigarettes, for scotch, for company, for great writing, and, above all, for conversation. That he had an output to equal what he took in was the miracle in the man. You’d be hard-pressed to find a writer who could match the volume of exquisitely crafted columns, essays, articles, and books he produced over the past four decades.
