'I thought I died': Gay man Jack Price, beaten in Queens, talks about attack

'I thought I died': Gay man Jack Price, beaten in Queens, talks about attack:
"The gay Queens man whose brutal beating was caught on tape spoke out for the first time Friday, saying he didn't expect to survive the attack.

'I thought I died,' Jack Price, 49, told the Daily News from his bed at New York Hospital Queens. 'I was bleeding all over the place.'

With tubes running into his chest and nose, the resilient Price insisted he wouldn't want anyone else to face a similar fate.

'Better it was me,' Price said in a pained voice, the stitches along his broken jaw clearly visible. 'Someone else may not have survived it.'

The courageous College Point man spoke out more than a week after the attack.

The late-night Oct. 8 beatdown left Price with a shattered jaw, broken ribs and a collapsed lung.

Daniel Rodriguez, 21, and pal Daniel Aleman, 26, the two goons cops say were captured on surveillance video repeatedly punching, kicking and stomping on Price, have been charged with felony assault as a hate crime."

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?
