Court decision in L.A.

David and others,
I was wondering what was going to become of that court case. I had read
about it some time ago, but that was before a decision was made. I have to
agree with the Judge on this one. I am however, surprised that she came
down with the decision she did. First, if the person had just kept his
mouth shut nothing would have happened. You do not hear me or most people
going around talking about their sexual preferences. (I do not know about
females, but I will admit, that frequently young bucks like to get together
and brag about expliots-most of which I suspect are false, but they
normally out grow this by their early 20's-the ones I hung out with did well
I have nothing against homosexuals, I know people who are homosexuals and
have even been told that there are some in the family. I was even told
that one of my employer was a homo when I was working in Hollywood. It never
changed our working relationship. He did his job well and I got along well
with him. If he or any of these other people ever came up to me and told
me they were homos, however, I would have reacted differently. Quite
simply, unless I am planning to marry or "live with" the person (I am already
married) I do not give a hoot what their sexual preferences are. It is my
feelings that sex should be kept between a loving couple. It is none of anyone
elses business. If someone goes out and advertises the fact, especially an
adult who should know better, then they generally get what they deserve.
I also feel we should shoot (well, that may be a little to much, but it might
help solve the problem) the people who make it their business to tell us
everything about other people which is none of our business and certainly
none of their business. Worse yet, most of the information passed is false
or the truth so changed that it is really a lie. It seems like now days
(Maybe I had too many years in L.A. working in Hollywood!), it is more
incrimidating if you share an apartment with a member of the same sex than
if you share one with the opposite sex.
Anyway, I want sign off with a quote which I unfortuntely do not have
written down, so I recounting this from memory. I can not even recall the
source, but if true, it makes the success of People magazine a sad
commentary on the intelligence of our population.
Common people talk about other people.
Smart people talk about things.
Intelligent people talk about ideas.
(The quote had to do with increasing levels of intelligence, the above was
the easist way for me to recount this.)
