so if jane doe sings "bend over greek sailor*" in the privacy of her shower, she violates the code.

* google isn't turning up the whole lyrics but did have this:
A long-haul trucker has to work on Christmas morning. He stops at a diner and orders eggs bennedict. The waitress brings his breakfast out on a chrome hubcap, and he says "Hey, what's with the hubcap?"
And the waitress replies "Oh, there's no plate like chrome for the hollandaise."

I knew this local gay activist, Marla. Turns out her girlfriend [may have, allegedly] embezzled $6 million,and they'd been donating a lot of it to Democrats and NPO's. E.g. Hillary, and was Andre Carson's biggest individual contributor. Happened to see this in a physical newspaper a roommate picked up. A blog has more.

I went to see the Tucker Max movie this morning (AM=$5 instead of $10.)
I liked it, as I had expected to, but there were only 2 other people there,so I'm not sure they'll be able to have their national big opening next week.
Went to see it again tuesday with some friends, who liked it. There were 2 other people in the theater for a total of 5.
It looks like the national release is getting cut way back, a few hundred theaters instead of 2000.
