Sometimes, it’s good to have a joke that’s so bad it’s good. You know, the type Dad would tell at a family BBQ.
I’m hoping this sign is just meant “don’t pee in stairwell” but I’m kind of worried…
I have believed that the days of gays having “disposable income” and being allegedly better of than their heterosexual counterparts have long been over. The following article featured in the Miami Herald, furthers my assertion.
Report: Anti-gay laws drive up poverty rates for LGBT people (with NBC News video of Florida widow Arlene Goldberg)
A report issued Tuesday shows that LGBT Americans face added financial burdens — and often higher poverty rates — because of antigay national, state and local legislation.
NBC News has covered the story, with a video:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed the first patient to accidentally carry Ebola to the United States has been diagnosed at a hospital in Dallas.
Four other people with Ebola — all medical volunteers working in West Africa — have been evacuated to the U.S. for treatment, but this is the first case in a traveler. The patient is at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas. The CDC said it would release more details later Tuesday.
Texas Health Presbyterian said in a statement late Monday that it had admitted a patient into strict isolation “based on the patient’s symptoms and recent travel history.” It did not release further details, citing patient confidentiality.
“The patient is an adult with a recent history of travel to West Africa. The patient developed symptoms days after returning to Texas from West Africa and was admitted into isolation on Sunday at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas,” the state health department said in a statement.
“The Texas Department of State Health Services is working with the CDC, the local health department and the hospital to investigate the case and help prevent transmission of the disease. The hospital has implemented infection control measures to help ensure the safety of patients and staff.”
CDC officials have said that most standard hospital infection control measures should be adequate to prevent the spread of the virus. Ebola is deadly but it’s not necessarily easy to catch. It doesn’t travel by air but is transmitted by direct contact with the bodily fluids of someone who has symptoms, such as vomit, diarrhea or blood.

University of California to add gender neutral restrooms
SAN FRANCISCO — Responding to concerns raised by gay and transgender students and employees, University of California President Janet Napolitano directed the system’s 10 campuses on Monday to create more gender neutral restrooms and to allow students to update their records with a preferred name that does not necessarily match their legal name.
The two actions respond to recommendations from a task force that started meeting before Napolitano assumed the president’s job a year ago Tuesday and which she has expanded into an ongoing advisory group to come up with suggestions for how the university can be more LGBT-inclusive.
“UC should be the gold standard where these issues are concerned.” Napolitano said in a statement.
Several UC campuses, as well as colleges and universities across the nation, already have (more…)
