commented on Passenger Ejected from Plane for Singing "I Will Always Love You"
Talked to some attendants one flight, and they know they won't get any trouble from passengers reading, watching the movie, using the head phones, talking quietly amongst themselves and/or using their laptops, etc.
It's not those who can occupy themselves like sane adults from whom the trouble flows.
Someone weirdly singing despite being asked to stop has TROUBLE written all over her, and is likely to create a major INCIDENT.
How long would you put up with that at your workplace, before you called the cops?
commented on SL Letter of the Day: I'm Out
I was dating an English punk musician back in the late 1970s, come to New York to make it big.
Pressed up a lot of sample 45s, and named his company "Cunt Records", although I tried to talk him out of it.
Predicted that every record company secretary who opened the envelope would throw his demo in the trash before any A&R guy got to see it (and yes, the A&R guys were all guys then, and the secretaries women.)
He wouldn't listen, and after zero response slunk back to England unrecognized.
There's a lesson in there somewhere.

I personally called several of the Los Angeles LDS members who donated to Prop Hate, or rather, left messages for them at their work, if that's the contact I could find.
I don't imagine they liked me impinging on their private lives, as I didn't care for them interfering in the private lives of gays and lesbians.
Perhaps they informed their church, they'd rather not be strong-armed into donations the next time, if so perhaps I did some good..
