A Randroidism

Tuesday, September 23, 2003 6:52 Comments Off

As much as I love male facial hair, Ayn Rand hated it. It’s another case of a Randroid personal preference being elevated to an absolute. Barbara Branden describes an incident in regards to the casting of The Fountainhead (which, in itself, is a laughable thesis). In later years, Ayn laughed delightedly when she described a [...]

Hetero, Homo, Metrosexual, Feminized, or What?

Monday, September 22, 2003 7:47 Comments Off

My new column is up today: Males and Metrosexuality. I wanted to blog up a great letter I had received – on this topic, in response to a previous column – before I wrote the column. I wrote this a couple of weeks ago, as I had been thinking about this crazy “metrosexual” labeling going [...]

Has everyone seen this by now? WorldNetDaily’s Paul Sperry, always an excellent reporter, produced that last week. “We believe he has, in fact, reconstituted nuclear weapons,” Cheney said March 16 on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “Meet the Press” host Tim Russert gave Cheney a chance to clarify his prewar statement in a return appearance on [...]
