Stinky Parisians; Stalking Tina

Written by Taki on . Posted in Breaking News, Posts

One Wedding & A Funeral First the wedding, and a very pretty one it was. Princess Alexia of Greece, 33, the eldest child of ex-King Constantine of the Hellenes and Queen Anne Marie, married Carlos Morales Quintana, 28, a Spaniard and a commoner. The wedding took place last Friday in London, and every crowned head of Europe—and just as [&hellip

Sick of Rich & Clinton, Scared of Struwwelpeter

Written by None - Do not Delete on . Posted in Breaking News, Posts

MUGGER: After reading Frank Rich’s July 3 op-ed piece “The Summer of Matthew Shepard” in The New York Times, I researched your columns containing the words “Frank Rich.” You must induct this man into your permanent shit list. Rich examines with exaggerated sensitivity the consequences of intolerance toward homosexuals. His impassioned defense of gay rights—a tutorial on meta-ethics—unfairly associates anyone [&hellip

Were Some Pirates Poofters?

Written by John Strausbaugh on . Posted in Breaking News, Posts

Were a lot of pirates poofters? Or to put that more politely: Was there much homosexual activity in pirate society? On the surface it seems one of those Pope-Polish questions. Gay historian B.R. Burg, in his classic, and controversial, Sodomy and the Pirate Tradition (originally published by NYU Press in 1983), simply assumed that of course there was, and offered [&hellip

Jew England

Written by Jonathan Ames on . Posted in Breaking News, Posts

I’m on an island 12 miles off the coast of Maine. It’s morning. Overcast. Cool. Out my window, I can see the island’s small yacht club—the numerous sailboats and the gray, old docks, alive in their subtle treading of water, resting on the chest of the tide, like my lady friend laying her head on my breast as I [&hellip

Has Gore Hit Bottom?

Written by Russ Smith on . Posted in Breaking News, Posts

Hillary Sucks Up the Media’s Gush and Mush I’ve cleared all my bets, prematurely, from the Bill Clinton/MonicaLewinsky/impeachment saga. Which means I posted $400 to Jim Larkin in Phoenix; $1000 to Alex Cockburn in Petrolia, CA; and divvied up smaller bundles among staffers at the office. It’s lamentable, but certain, that Clinton won’t be driven from office before his term expires—although [&hellip

The Nation Explains Youth Violence

Written by Andrey Slivka on . Posted in Breaking News, Posts

There’s a depressing, not to mention inadvertently funny, article in the July 19 Nation that’s worth examining for anyone who’s fascinated, as I am, by the left’s effeteness and milksop inefficacy. How do these people presume to accomplish anything of worth if their magazines keep defining themselves with articles like this one? Entitled “Did Buffy Do It?” the article, by [&hellip

NATO’s Insecurity Forces in Bosnia

Written by Richard Byrne on . Posted in Breaking News, Posts

Sarajevo—There was a big turnout at the NATO SFOR (“Stabilization Force”) Press Center in downtown Sarajevo two weeks ago, where NATO’s outgoing Secretary-General Javier Solana gave a press conference. Solana was a regular visitor here back in the day when the NATO peacekeeping operation in Bosnia-Herzegovina was the alliance’s biggest chore. A few months of bombing Yugoslavia and the task [&hellip

REPORTS FROM THE 1999 AAN CONVENTION Memphis dispatches from MUGGER and Andrey Slivka

Written by Andrey Slivka on . Posted in Breaking News, Posts

MEDIA ROUNDUP   NYPress 6/2/99   AAN Botches It Again “You’re the guy who wrote that fucking piece of shit about my boss, man,” the bohemian’s hollering at me from behind his shades, his eyebrows beetling above the dark glass. His goatee’s bobbing; his finger’s working aggressively—jabbing toward my chest with accusatory force. It’s a gathering of “alternative” journalists here [&hellip
