Different strokes for different folks!

Throughout many posts, the "L" word is unqualifyingly used to mean "Liberal".

In most (not all) of my circles, the "L" word means "Lesbian". Isn't there even a cable t.v. show,perhaps on Showtime, named that, "The "L" Word"?

Also, a lot about Catholicism and saints is prevalent throughout many posts. I highly regard Saint Judy -- as in Garland!

The point is to keep in mind that there are "differenet strokes -- or different vocabulary -- for different folks" -- though we still may agree on most.

See U-2 peform: Next Saturday night on "Saturday Night Live".

Cool, Stonewall! I'm a Judy Garland affectionado myself. That lady was an unbelievable talent, too bad we couldn't have her longer than we did. It's really a shame that she had so many problems in her life. Good grief, how many people can sing, act and dance?

interesting site stonewall. Being from NYC myself, I just have to remember that on this board, unless we're specifically talking about lesbians, which I'm not, the L word is liberal, which I am and damn proud of it. Stone, you should think about joining U2NYC -- the link is in my sig.

Btw, thanks for the site. The Stonewall riot was pretty interesting -- the cops came to raid the place as being a gay hangout and in the ensuing riot, the cops got barracaded IN the bar with the patrons on the outside keeping them in. If anyone visits NYC, you should go on the Village Literary Pub Crawl -- the Stonewall is down the street from the new Kettle of Fish. At its earlier location in the city, the Kettle was home to Jack Kerouac and the whole Beatnik scene.

Anyway, back to our regularly scheduled debate about the L word...

Some people think I'm a loser because of my passion for politics. Yet they tend to have no passion for any subject whatsoever. Who's the loser now?

Anyway there are no losers at Interference! We you!

No losers here.

I think the "L" word should remain and always be love.

Hey, Kitty, U are not a "loser" -- U only voted for one (actually two). The political "L" for "loser" is Kerry. Bush is the "W".

Verte, thanx for your positive and witty reply.

Ironically, the nite of the now historic Stonewall Rebellion, many people at the club were saying "Let's toast another one to Saint Judy". That's how I got that expression. (By the way, like U, I'm Catholic, too.) U see, the great Judy Garland 's funeral was in the same town -- New York, NY -- that very day. Twenty-five years later in 1994 at "Stonewall 25", with a million people in Central Park, Judy's daughter Liza Minnelli came on stage to perform immediately after the members of the STONEWALL Rebellion Veterans' Association were tributed. In hindsight, the NYC cops of the Sixth Precinct have acknowledged that they picked the wrong day back on June 27, 1969! Hello! This past summer the Stonewall Cops and the Stonewall Vetz finally had a reunion/joint public function together -- after 35 years!

Sing, act and dance nowadays? Michael Jackson -- who absolutely loves "Over The Rainbow"!

This is a sensible aversion if you ask me. Some politicians, like Joe Lieberman, are really fundamentally decent guys. I admit I didn't support Lieberman because I don't agree with his views, but I respect his decency. There are way too many who are just into money and power, and I can see why people wouldn't trust people who are into money and power. I did vote for Kerry, but plenty of my friends did not. Some of my lefty buddies preferred Nader.
