Closet Politics: Is Kagan Gay or Just Looks as Though She Might Be? Obama's Awful Pick By ALEXANDER COCKBURN

Ruby Anniversary. Jackson State gets less attention than Kent State. Maybe because there were fewer dead, though there were plenty wounded. Maybe because the dead were black. But ultimately, I think, because Kent State got a song. In any case, it's wrong to remember one without the other.

  2. (((( I could cite a student at the Harvard Law School when Kagan was Dean who says her gay preference was taken for granted.)))

    Heh, I could say a lot of crazy things about my law school dean, but that wouldn't make them any more than rumor.

    I find the "Kagan must be Gay because I say so" meme really irritating and pointless. Don't you think there's about a million dollars in tabloid money to the first ex-lover that comes forward with proof she is? If she's gay, why isn't there an ex-lover out there cashing in?

    David Souter was an unmarried, career-driven judge who liked antiques and classical music and he got put on the "most eligible bachelors" list by Washingtonian Magazine. But an unmarried woman must be gay. Sigh.

  3. I don't know much of anything about Kagan, but I did find it mildly interesting when some of the reporters started commenting on how many of the Supreme Court Justices would now be Ivy Leaguers from New York if she gets confirmed.

    Back to shrinking cities, etcetera, you might find this interview interesting as well:
