Take it away. But some random notes:

* In answer to questions from several readers: Though I’ll believe just about anything about The Huckster and money, this thing just sounded dubious to me. Update:
But what about conservative bloggers on the take? Hmmm.


* Arkansas Business reports that Dan Savage’s explicit sex advice column lasted one week in the Fayetteville Free Weekly. That paper is trying to reshape itself as more alternative, but there are limits to alternativity in the Hussman-Stephens Northwest Arkansas newspaper monopoly, of which the Free Weekly is a part. No need to hunt up the cached version of the removed column to read it. Savage’s syndicated work is always available on his home website, including the most recent column, opening with anal sex and moving right along to other topics.

* Episcopal school in Texas denies admission to child of lesbian couple. Said the head of school:


We are a church affiliated with the Anglican Church in North America, and it is their policy that we don’t provide services to individuals or families that do not behave properly.
