Light Blogging Ahead

Things are in good shape right now. We're preparing to apply for the citizens committee, a new curriculum is beginning development, and the opposition is undermining themselves without our help.

For the next week or so I won't be doing much blogging, if any. Got some stuff going on, I'll tell you about it later.

You may have noticed, I had a post here last night about the CRC's accusation that a club had gay dating links on their site at a high school. Let me outline the situation as it appears to me:
  • The Outlook club, a gay-straight alliance, had a school web page with links to some gay-teen type resources
  • Nobody seems to maintain the club's web page
  • Some of the sites linked to have gone out of business, and their domain names were bought by commercial search engine companies -- very common on the Internet
  • If you type a word into the search engines, they search for related terms, and produce "sponsored links" to the kinds of things you are looking for
  • If you type "gay" into any search engine (even Ask Jeeves, a search engine just for kids), you will find sites that say how to "meet hot single gay guys"
  • If CRC had searched for something nice, they would have found it
  • Instead, they tried to convince the school board that their search engine results showed gay teens advertising "hot gay men in your area" using school computers

The accusation is so stinky, I am embarrassed to have to explain it.

I took that post down. Responding to bigots, you sometimes have to go down to their level, and I don't find that I like that feeing. The issue has been addressed, and I didn't want to leave this blog sitting here for a week with something that trivial on the top. Somebody did send me an email of their discussion at their little "forum," and I see they are quite worked up over this, accusing me of slandering them and stuff. Good. It's a nice time to take a break.

Let's enjoy our summer and come back to this fresh and happy, with clear minds and clean, courageous hearts.

Jim

Now way RT, I just gotta travel a little bit. I won an award and have to go to a conference for the ceremony. Don't know if there's Internet access at the hotel or what.

Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The
words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.
I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to
let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon.
Many thanks
