Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Well, Let Me Say This About That

Well, Let Me Say This About That is an interesting twist on current events, as told by Dallas’ finest and funniest Craig McCartney.

What’s Good Enough For Melania

It still surprises me how gullible I can be at this relatively late stage in life. Watching Melania Trump give her speech Monday night at the Republican National Convention (not in person, but that’s a different story), I admit to rooting inwardly for the beautiful lady with the charming accent. It was so endearing to hear her speak of the […]

Senseless Sensibility

This week, I learned something about myself that I didn’t know. When I hear something on television or read something on the internet that strains my comprehension, my head tilts right and down in a Scooby-Doo kind of way. It never tilts left, which may be a disappointment to some of my friends. There’s probably a left brain/right brain reason […]

(Almost) Everything Old Is New Again

Times change and the English language moves forward. New words come into the vernacular—texting and its trashy cousin sexting, bougie, and some others that you know and I don’t. Old words get new meanings—think of “shade” (and the throwing of it) meaning essentially what “dis” meant when it was a new word not that long ago. Personally I try to […]

Clutch Pearls

Well, it is official. I’ve now heard from friends in all three political camps that they will be holding their noses and voting for either Secretary Clinton or Mr. Trump. And, since this is 2016, that doesn’t mean that I talked to them in all cases…just that they’ve posted their dissatisfaction on Facebook. There are Democrats who supported Senator Sanders […]

Gun Crazy

Doing a weekly column means being on the lookout for something to write about pretty much all the time. When Donald Trump said that it “would have been a beautiful, beautiful sight” if someone had shot back at the killer in Orlando, I thought to myself…”I’ve got this.” Never mind that nothing one might witness during a mass murder would […]

The First Time (Or Two)

There’s been so much talk since Orlando about the role that gay bars play and have played as a safe and welcoming space for LGBT folks over the years.  In that vein, I thought a light hearted remembrance might be in order. Anybody who grew up in Texas knows that emancipation does not occur at 18 or even 21—emancipation is […]

Is That You, Narcissus?

Well, it’s all over but the crying. Hillary Clinton officially became the presumptive nominee for the Democrats, and Bernie Sanders says he will continue to fight to the convention. I think that means he’s somewhere between denial and anger on the grief cycle. But let’s face it. Hillary and Bernie have been chasing each other around a Monopoly board where […]

Spare Change

I’m not much for change, especially technological ones. My email address is with AOL, for goodness sake. And we’ve had the same landline phone number for 28 years…which is before it was called a landline and it was just a phone number. Now, I am for societal changes that expand rights and protect individuals…that’s a good thing. Finding out that […]
