January is exiting stage left as the new year get's off to a roaring start with so many juicy topics. The new Democratically controlled Congress is in an uproar over it's rubics cube called Iraq, President Bush is entrenched into his mindset that victory is at hand, VP Dick Cheney is all but tripping the light fantastic with his assessment as he rebukes those who dare ask about daughter, Mary's decision to have a child with her LTC( long time companion- 15 years and counting), Heather Poe. The VP gave interviewer Wolf Blitzer that "no you didn't ask me that shit" look and stated that the question was simply "out of bounds." Oh how we disagree with his premise that Ms. Cheney's choice to have a child is somehow private, when she herself has put every one on notice about her life with her very public book, Now,It's My Turn. Wolf Blitzer gets a "attaboy" for staying professionally stoic and only slightly rebuffed.
Gay Rehab...Who knew? Could the old saying, "only in California" be reinstated as the wack state of the Union trots out another star for a public flogging. This time Isaiah Washington of Grey's Anatomy fame, was being taught the lesson that "all that glitter isn't gold," even if you are apart of a hit series. Do not pass Go, but go straight to REHAB. In case you missed it, Mr. Washington has been duly accused by T.R. Knight of dropping a "F" Bomb on him while on the set, subsequently causing him to be "lanced," before he was ready as told to talk show host Ellen. Meanwhile, according to Mr. Washington's peeps, he is quietly atoning for this indiscretion and will be back more gay friendly, as the cameras roll very soon.

Local GLBT Chamber of Commerce? The idea is being floated within the community that Little Rock should explore creating an GLBT Chamber of Commerce,similar to other major cities. A chamber could harness the power of local businesses and assist in creating a hub for organizations to canvass for sponsorships, networking and maximizing resources. This is a novel idea and has worked in other cities who also host Expo's and have been instrumental in creating "rainbow districts." We support the concept and would hope that it would find enthusiatic supporters. Feel free to comment and share your insights with us.
