Ga. cheap when it comes to public health

imageIn the wake of the reports last month that showed Georgia is a leader in HIV infections, this piece of news is a little less surprising: The state ranks 39th in spending per resident on public health.

How a fire on a farm killed The Gay Agenda

imageOk, ok. We know. You are lost and confused, without your daily dose of The Gay Agenda to figure out what the hell you're supposed to be doing to make your Friday a little more gay.

Trust us, there's plenty you can be doing, especially since many of you have the day off for the holiday. Or don't have a job because of the recession. We wish we could tell you each and every detail. But we can't. Why? Simply put, a big fire.

imageOh, how we love Tyler Perry. Though he won't come out publicly -- probably concerned that the religious portion of his fan base will shun him, rather than use it as a teachable moment -- he is wont to tell others how to act.

On Saturday, Perry attended an Atlanta Urban League luncheon. When a reporter asked Atlanta's own entertainment giant if he had any grooming tips for black men, Perry offered this quip:

A few of us, not all of us but a few of us, need to pull up our damn pants.


No doubt Perry meant after he's done with them.    READ MORE »
