POST YOUR WELL WISHES FOR CHAD GIBSON IN MY COMMENTS

Chad Gibson was brutally attacked this weekend by police on a "routine code inspection" at the Rainbow Lounge in Fort Worth Texas. He is in intensive care, and--though at last report his prognosis was decent--we have no idea what the long term effects of this police brutality will be. All of this happened on the EVE OF THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE STONEWALL UPRISING, ANOTHER BRUTAL GAY BAR RAID FORTY YEARS AGO. We are angry and we want IMMEDIATE change... but in the midst of this lets NOT forget about the PERSONAL TOLL that violence takes. I want this post to be to welcome positive comments of hope for Chad Gibson, which I will forward to him once I get his contact information. I have woken up in the hospital after having the shit beat out of me before. Thankfully it was not by the police and not because I was gay. It also wasn't in Fort Worth Texas, though. I know how much it meant to have my friends come see me and sit with me until I was released. I want to pour that same love out A THOUSAND FOLD to Chad Gibson. I will be SURE to keep YOU ALL updated with his condition if I learn more in the next 10 hours before the Dallas Voice offices reopens. Follow my coverage of the Rainbow Lounge incident.

PLEASE LEAVE POSITIVE MESSAGES OF SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGEMENT FOR CHAD GIBSON HERE!

Chris Geidner: In Iowa, judges are ousted.

Via Chris Geidner's Poliglot blog at Metro Weekly:

"

In Iowa, which declared Iowa's marriage ban unconstitutional under the state's constitution in 2009, the National Organization for Marriage got one of its first electoral victories this year. The judicial retention elections appear to have resulted in the replacement of all three justices up for a vote this year.

Here, as of 3:35 a.m. and with 1767 out of 1774 precincts reporting, are the Iowa Secretary of State's election results:

Supreme Court Justice David L. Baker
Yes 443437 45.75%
No 525865 54.25%

Supreme Court Justice Michael J. Streit
Yes 442459 45.6%
No 527921 54.4%

Supreme Court Chief Justice Marsha Ternus
Yes 437118 44.99%
No 534486 55.01%

The court was unanimous in its 2009 ruling that Iowa's constitution required marriage equality."

Can we trust Rasmussen anymore?

HAPPY HOUR... POSTPONED.
