The Eyes ofTammy Faye Review page- 8
"Heterophobia ?"
Heterophobia popped into my mind the
other day after a conversation with
someone who had been offended by
actions of a heterosexual couple in a
predominantly gay estabUshment. I could
not recall hearing the word before and
decided to consult the old Random House
Webster's dictionary. Guess what, it's not
in the 1991 edition! I suppose I should
buy a newer release with all the new
strange words floating around these days.
The word Homophobia is listed, Homo,
Hetero, Phobia, and Phobic are all listed.
The defmition given for Phobia is: "A
persistent, irrational fear of a specific
object, activity or situation that leads to a
compelling desire to (JVoid it. "
Now, we all know what Homophobic
means. Most of us have experienced
some form of Homophobic attitude in our
lifetime. I think I would be safe in saying
that Jerry Falwell is homophobic, not that
I'm judging Jerry's personal convictions,
but he has been quoted many times
speaking out against the Gay/Lesbian
community. So, would this gay person I
had a conversation with, be considered
"Heterophobic"? He seemed to indicate
that he had a compelling desire to avoid
the activity. continued next page

I recall a situation on Interstate 44 east of ·
Oklahoma City. I was driving home from
Lake Eufaula with the crnise control set
on 70, in front of me was car swerving
across the yellow line, slowing down,
speeding up, just driving very danger- .
ously. I hesitated to pass, in fear of gettmg
hit, but finally took the chance. I was
dismayed at what was going on in that
automobile. A man was driving with the
seat back way back and a woman was
sitting on his lap, facing him, gyrating up
and down! Baby, I almost ran off the road
and I got the hell out of there. Sex on the
highway, whow! I should have called the
Hyway Patrol, but didn't. I had a compelling
desire to avoid the activity and the
situation. Did I have a Heterophobic
moment?
Many heterosexuals find gay bars
intri ouing and homosexuals frequent
strai;ht bars as well. The question is, if
gay people are expected not to be too
obvious in a straight club, should we
expect the same from straight people in
gay clubs?
More important is how we as humans
conduct ourselves in all public places. It
is possible to enjoy nightclubing, ha:e .
fun, meet new people without engagmg m
lewd acts. Beware, you may develope a
Privacyphobia!
Can vou imagine a world with no
phobia's? A future world with no gay bars
and no straight bars? Just places for
everyone to enjoy and be yourself
without offending others. Perhaps we
should all begin now to prepare ourselves
for the future.

1000's
of
Marriages
Invalid?
This morning I waited to hear on CNN
about the California Supreme Court's
decision concerning same-sex marriages
performed in San Francisco. You could
see the cameras and media people edging
their way into the small crowd, Molly
McKay, Associate Executive Director of
Equality California, made her wav
through pages of legalese as we ;11 held
our breath.
Then ,,·e heard the words said aloud for
the first time: "These marriages are
invalidated." You can have a parking
ticket validated and that is simply a piece
of paper. They have decided that as
human beings, loving people, and people
of faith that we do not have the same
worth as a parking ticket.
Put your relationship, your life, your
friendships on the line and let someone
proclaim that you are invalidated.
Can you imagine the tears, disbelief, the
overwhelming disappointment and yes
even anger that must have been felt as
each person comprehended what was just
read to them. As those words were read
aloud and echoed through the air I felt
very much as if I had just been violated
and I wasn't even there.
But here's what I know and hope that
you know. Legislation is only words and
. until the people truly embrace it. .. even if it
had passed the legislature and had been
successfully brought before their State
Supreme Court it would have truly been just
that, "only words."
The issue here is one of rights and the State
Governments around the country, the
amendments being passed, and the scare
influence of the pious religious groups in this
country are setting a dangerous precedent.
They are legalizing discrimination.
But here's what I know and hope that you
know ... as stated by Metropolitan Community
Church pastor from San Francisco, "They can
take away our rights, they can try and make us
second class citizens-but no one can trulv
invalidate us. \X!e know that our loves, our,
lives, our stories, our bodies are not just valid,
but also good, beautiful, and sacred.
My heart goes out to every couple who was
married-. Knmv this: Your love vour .)
commitment and your relationship are validated by•
the God of manv names and bv the community
that surrounds y~u. · ·
No one can take away the joy we felt in those fair
days of February. So let us remember Alice
Walker's vmrds: "Resistance is the secret of joy."
We keep lovingly resisting all that is unjust and
unequal.
In this country there ha,;-e been manv cries heard
round the world, "Remember the Al~mo,"
"Remember Pearl Harbor," "Remember 9/11" and
remember "they can only do to us ,,;-hat we allow
them to."
If you think anything of yourself as a person, if
you think anything of your relationship, if you
think anything of the rights being stripped away
from you then stay in the struggle and remember
why!
Because you count! Because you are validated'.
Remember that in the near future we can stand to
change this country ... there is more to it than what
we are den;ed but it is a great part of it to ali of us.

OUT ON VAl.ATION
"Traveling in the gay friendly world"
by Donald Pile and Ray Williams
gaytravelers@aol.com
Now IS THE TIME TO GO TO
COLORADO
If you have never been to Colorado NOW is the
time to go. The travel business is really off this
year in Colorado and bargains are everywhere.
In the past Colorado was rated the most homophobic State in the Union and they have
lost millions of dollars due to the stupidity of their resident's voting record on gay rights
in the past Convention business has dropped considerably as well as other business
activities. Between the general economic woes of the country and the fires that Colorado
had a couple of years ago, they are really handing out the bargains for travelers.
We first drove to Colorado Springs and the weather was beautiful. There are so many
sights to see in the Colorado Springs area and most all of them are free. The Garden of
the Gods, Manitou Springs, The Cliff Dwellings, Pike's Peak are but just a few of the
interesting sights to see there. One day we drove to Cripple Creek, the old mining town
which is now "Casino City" with an over abundance of casinos in the town. Luckily for
us the slot machines were paying off pretty well. On the way back down to Colorado
Springs we got to see a herd of mountain goats that had come down and was mixing with
the autos on the highway. A hail storm about 20 minutes before we got to that point had
left the area full of large hail everywhere. Colorado Springs is the most homophobic part
of Colorado Springs however you would never know it by the gay and lesbian community
there. On Sunday, July 18th they had their PRIDEFEST 2004 and it was extremely well
attended. It was held right downtown in the city park square. The Rev. Elder Troy Perry,
founder of the Metropolitan Community Church was the featured guest speaker. That
was followed by a parade and then a rally, live entertainment, local groups, bands and
singers. They had a "kid's fun zone" for gay and lesbian parents. Vendors included area
banks, lending institutions, political tents (wonder why the Republican's didn't have a
tent there?) as well as Internet companies, phone companies. etc. The businesses in
Colorado KNOW to cater to the gay and lesbian communities! It was one of the finest
Pridefests that we have ever attended.
From Colorado Springs we drove up to the Mountains and ended our day at Vail, the ski
capitol of Colorado. Normally rates for accommodations in Vail are extremely high
ranging from around$ l 50.00 and up. However due to "no business" most all of the
accommodations bad dropped their rates drasticaliy. We stayed at a Lodge for under
$50.00 per night and that included breakfast every morning. A huge swimming pool,
Jacuzzi and picnic tables made for a perfect stay. There were two supermarkets within a

THE EYES OF TAMMY FAYE - A Film
by Fenton Bailey and Randy
Barbato
Roger Ebert and Richard Roeper
stated that "You might be suprised
how much you like Tammy Faye
Baker!" I could not agree more.
She is the kindest person with a
heart of gold. Tammy embraced
the Gay Community when others
turned their backs. Buy this film
and you will love her! Laugh and
cry with her. "Witness the
incredible real-life story of the
spectacular rise, fall and
resurrection of the "Queen of the
Eyelashes." Many times halarious
and oftentimes tragic, it is an
amazing tale of one of the most
adored and reviled women of our
time.Narrated by RuPaul Charles,
this award-winning film chronicles
Tammy Fayes's personal journey
from the geniune love-at-first-sight
ma king of the most successful
television ministry to being
crucified in the court of public
opinion. Extensive, revealing
interviews by those on the
inside will both shock and
endear. Delve deep into the notso-
Christian scandals and
milliion dollar lies that
devastated the empire and
destroyed family. And be
enlightened with Tammy Faye's
unique personal philosophies
that helped her carry on ...
Because in spite of it all, Tammy
Faye never lost hope in two
things - extra thick mascary
and Jesus Christ."
Quotable Quotes
"[Contrary to George W Bush's
statement,] it is simply a fact that
marriage is 'an evolving paradigm.' For
the first millennium after Christ,
Christianity didn't even recognize
marriage as a sacrament. It was
regarded as a purely secular matter of
property ownership. Marriage also
once meant the ownership of women
by men. It was once permanent, and
no divorce was possible. It was once
restricted to couples of the same race.
The notion that it has never changed
is simply untrue. The only relevant
question is whether the current
change [opening marriage to same-sex
couples] is a good one. The president
doesn't answer that question. He
simply asserts it, based on nothing but
bad history and ignorance."

Bush supporter, wricing at

Chris Greninge
An Inspiration To Our
Community.
by Star Writer Greg Steele
Joplin, .Missouri
Another example of talent and community
spirit gone unrecognized in the Four States
Region.
Chris Greninge, a Joplin business man and
native of Southwest Missouri, grew up in
Saginaw, Missouri and graduated from
Diamond High School, class of 1983. He
attended Crowder College, Pittsburg State
and graduated MSSU in 1990.
Chris and his partner of 14 years,Jeff Daws
reside in Joplin and have restored a beautiful
old Victorian. Chris loves antiques and has
an awesome collection. Old musical instruments
and tea pots are his favorites. Jeff is a
professional photographer and has worked
with Olan Mills Photography for the past 7
years.
A talented musician, Chris began playing the
piano at age 3. Played 2nd violin with the
September 1, 2004
Southeast Kansas Symphony and was the
organist for First Christian Church of
Joplin. Other than his full-time job as a
managing partner of Spain Grinding
Service, Chris volunteers his talent as
pianist, organist, Yocalist and directs a small
orchestra at St Pauls UMC. Then on Sunday
evening he volunteers as pianist and
organist at Spirit of Christ I\ICC Joplin and
it doesn't stop here people!
Chris has long aspired to form a Gay Men's
Choral group and or a LGBT community
orchestra. He feels, as we at "The Ozarks
Star" do, there are many untapped talents
out there in our small section of this
country.
"If we could draw them out of the closet,
get people excited, just in South\vest
Missouri alone, we could have a major
entertainment group. Getting folks together
with a common cause is very foreign to us
because of the negative impression some
have of our LGBT community. People
seem to think they are safer in the closet,
and go out of to\vn for social activities or
just move away. An all Gay /Lesbian
talented entertainment entity would
certainly blow their skirts up in Joplin, that's
for sure!" Chris said with his eye's spatk!ing.
"The Ozarks Star" recognizes and applauds
Chris Greninge for his talent, his giving
nature and most important, his sense of
community and volunteer spirit.
Anyone interested in working with Chris on
this project, may contact him at:

Internet Site.
Source: PlanetOut News
A11g11st 10, 2004
;\ federal judge ruled Tuesday that a gay activist
must change the name of a \'v'eb site criticizing the
Rev. Jerry Palwell, an anti-gay minister who at one
time blamed 9/11 on GLBT Americans.
.B. District Judge Claude Hilton ruled that the
Web site, fallwell.com, was too similar to Falwell's
own name, which the minister has trademarked.
Fallwell.com reads in part, "The Reverend
Jerry Palwell is completely wrong when he says
that gay and lesbian people are sinning and can
change." Lamparello also charges falwell of
breaking one of the Ten Commandments by
bearing false witness against gays and lesbians.
L:1st year, Falwell threatened to sue an ll!inois
man who set up Web sites called ierryfalweli.com
and jerryfallwell.com. That activist, Gary Cohn,
created his sites after Falwell stated that gays and
lesbians were part of 1be re;1sun the Sept. 11, 2001

note of the words of the scripture, which
they claim to so carefully follow ...

2,000 Athletic Model Guild
"Session Videos"
from the 1980s Available
Athletic l'lodel Guild
Release: C-04-002
El Cerrito, California - Certainly the second
and third most common fantasies among viewers
of physique photography are how they would
direct the movements of the models and the
answer to the question: What really happens at a
physique photo shoot?
Athletic Model Guild has announced the
availability of nearly two thousand video tapes,
called "Session Videos" by AMG owner Dennis
Bell, which will answer that question. "These are
tapes made during photo sessions by Bob Mizer at
AMG between 1980 and 1992," Bell said, "and
they show exactly what happened in the studio
from the rime the model got there and began
taking off his clothes, until the session v.ras over
and he started getting dressed again. Bob would
set the video camera on a rripod, and follow the
model with it while he shot his photos. This
"behind-the-scenes" footage includes Mizer
himself directing the models, models bickering
with each other or talking back to Bob, and the
audio which captures the comments, noises,
porn video, dogs barking and phones ringing
offset. But of course" Bell adds, " they also
feature up to 3 hours of non-stop nude
wrestling, spanking, jacking off, and Anal
Erotica (A&E); an exclusive type of
photography th:it m:ide AMG's fortune in the
1980s.
The first successful Video Cassette Recorder
(VCR) for the home was the 1/2 inch Betamax,
introduced by Sony in 1975. "Bob was really at
the forefront
of
technology,"
said Bell. "He
was recording
his models less
than five years
after the first
versions of
home
videotape
recorders hit
the market.
Today, in 2004,
we're taking
those original
Betamax tapes,
just as they
came from his
camera, but
m:i.king high
quality copies on VHS (the format which be:i.t
out Betamax as the preferred home use
videotape format)." AMG "Session Videos "
will be available in one-, two- and three-hour
tapes, depending on what Mizer recorded
originally. "We're dubbing these original
Betamax tapes using professional quality fourhead
Betamax editing and duplication
equipment to standard VHS tapes in the
Standard Play (SP- highest quality) mode." Bell
said he hoped to be able to release the Session
Videos series on DVD within two or three
years. However, plans are presently underway to
release "Session Videos Compilations" on
DVD. More information on that is expected
within the next sixty days. "For now," Bell said,
"we are involved in making a complete
inventory of the tapes rmd checking their
quality. That's nearly 3,500 hours of tape." Even ·
working forty hours a week, every week, it would
take nearly 18 months to complete the task. "But
as I looked at these tapes, I thought the material
was so remarkable, so classic and erotic, it would
be great to make them av:iilable right now to
classic physique lovers :ind long time fans of
i\ AMC. That's why I decided to make copies
T available on a customized basis."
t Bell rhapsodized about the assets of many of the
models he's "discovered" on the tapes. There are
the "men's men," said Bell. "Hairy, muscular, very
macho. Tico Patterson, Joseph Hardee and Steve
Cougar epitomize :i cross between the 80s clone
and a convict." However, Mizer also photographed
wh:it might be called "t:winks" today. "There are
some remarkable session videos of Joseph Phile,
Willie Amstel and Mike Reuter, who also went on
to do a lot of work for the Old Reliable studio."
l'f\
Some models are in one or two tapes, others
appear in many more. Dean .'\dams, for example,
appears in ninety-four videos. "He was nicknamed
'Kermit'," Bel! said, "because he was always
around the pool at the AMG studio. And
whenever Bob needed a second person to be in a
wrestling or spanking shot - there would be
Kermit, ready to jump into the action. Bob
actually received m:iil from customers asking him
to 'give Kermit a rest.' But that was rare. Most of
the guys \Vim appear in multiple videos were
outstanding in appearance: facial, muscular
development or endowment or all three.
Armando Gonzales, for instance, who will be the
cover for an upcoming AMC release on DVD of
'Best Size #35' was in forty four different
sessions. T. J. Swan was a favorite black model,
noted for his great endowment. Eddie Perez was
a popular model who appeared in scores of
videos and wrestled a lot."
Photographs of these models and many more can
be seen :it the AMG web site. (ht.tp;.LL
.llll<l'..l!I.LU1W.1;.UJ..1.l'..Ll.!J.J.J.J~w.1JL..1..1.1.U.L44LL) Ordering
information is there as well. Information is also
available from Bell or his staff at 1-800-AMGDIRECT
(1-800-264-3473), from 9am-5pm
(Pacific Time). Email

the current prices are less than half of what
Mizer charged for the tapes in the 1980s.

Early Treatment for HIV Act. She firmly
opposes efforts to write discrimination into
the .S. Constitution, such as the Federal
Marriage Amendment.
A word on her opponent: Christopher
"Kit" Bond (R) has held this seat since
1987. He scored a 1 7°,riaring on the last
HRC Congressional Scorecard. He opposes
both the Employment Ni-Discrimination
Act and the Hate Crimes Prevention Act
and has voted against both bi!ls in the past.
He supports the Federal Marriage
Amendment, an attempt to write
discrimination into the .B. Constitution.
The race: As a longtime incumbent, Bond
has the upper hand in the race, but polls
show that Farmer is closing the gap
between them. Farmer has mounted a
serious challenge and needs as much
support as she can get in order to pull out a
victory. Visir: www .hrc.org/ candidates

McGreevey
Causes Grief!
New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey's self-outing may ease
the emotional burden of living in the closet, which he has
endured for years. But in the current climate of antigay
baiting, McGreevey's "personal" revelation politically
impacts a community he has never been - and may never
be - part of.
McGreevey was annoyingly vague about why he was
resigning, although the reasons will undoubtedly be
revealed soon; speculation runs high that he is
stepping down because an imbroglio much bigger
than a sex scandal will be unfolding. In a way, it's a
bizarre kind of progress when being gay is viewed as
the good news preceding some unspecified bad
news to c01ne.
Unfortunately for gay people, though, McGreevey
chose to lump his departure from office together with a tortured assertion of being "a gay
American." And worse, he used the word "shamefully" to describe his affair with a man,
although my guess is that it's the extramarital nature of it that he is ashamed of.
Given McGreevey's choice of timing and words, straight and gay people alike were justifiably
confused about why be was resigning. After all, New Jersey is not Mississippi. Indeed,Jersey
commuters interviewed on their way home from work in Manhattan made remarks to _New
York Newsday_ like, "He resigned because he is gay, but why?" and "There's a lot of people
in politics who are homosexuals, so what the heck." The National Stonewall Democrats' onesentence
statement also seemed to assume McGreevey had resigned out of deep shame:· t,he
group's executive director wrote that he looked forward to a time when being gay "is simply
an honest component of daily life and no longer a consideration in public service."
As a consequence of McGreevey's obfuscation, the mainstream press has been rife with
misleading headlines like "N.J. Governor Resigns Over Homosexual Affair" and "Gay Affair
Ends Career." It's no wonder that most gay leaders have chosen to steer a broad course
around the controversy, being careful not to embrace the governor and only issuing brief,
cautious statements of concern. The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force said, for
example, that "our hearts go out" to him, while the Human Rights Campaign hoped that he
and his family "will come to a place of understanding."
Other gay groups have been forced to try to clean up the mess McGreevey's "personal"
statement makes for our movement. The National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association
hurriedly issued an advisory to the mainstream media requesting "caution in fram:ng the
reasons for McGreevey's resignation," as it is "an oversimplification to say McGreevey
resigned solely because he is gay." -continued page 25

Deep Inside
Hollywood
by:Romeo San Vicente
September 2004
Johnny Depp Is So 400 Years Ago
The way Johnny Depp has bucked conventional
career ,visdom should be an inspiration (or rebuke)
to every actor who ever took a role in a big, dumb
Holly,vood movie just to get a paycheck. This man
has beaten his own ,veird path every step of the
way and succeeded, and that Pith is currently
taking him back to the 1600s in _ The Libertine_.
The debut film by director Laurence Dunmore
and playwright Stephen Jeffreys features Depp as
17th-century bisexual poet John Wilmot, Earl of
Rochester, a pleasure-seeker whose death from
syphilis at age 33 led to posthumous fame for his
work. At the moment, the movie is only rumored
to contain some same-sex liplocks, but is
guaranteed to feature costars like Samantha
Morton, John Malkovich, and snaggle-toothed,
Irish punk-rock legend Shane MacGowan. And as
cool as that casting is, Romeo is happy to report
that Depp will most likely be kissing newcomer
Rupert T'riend rather than MacG.
HBO Cruises Rosie
Rosie's getting cozy with HBO avin. Her latest
project with the Emmy-laden cable channel is a
documentary about a gay family cruise. Executiveproduced
by HBO's Sheila Nevins v,"ith Rosie and
wife Kelli O'Donnell, the as-yet-untitled doc will
showcase a weeklong cruise to Key West and the
Bahamas on O'Donnell's R Family Vacations,
which took place in July. Rosie's previous HBO
stand-up special, as well as the _Rosie O'Donneli's
Kids Arc Punny_ family special, led to this renewed
partnership, one that will give a needed public face to
gay parents and their kids. That's a side of VY life
that most media outlets don't find "sexy" enough to
point their cameras at, so HBO is to be applauded.
The special will hit the water sometime in 2005.
Kushner and Spielberg Try Terrorism
The 1972 Munich Olympics became a permanent
scar in the memories of millions of people when
Palestinian terrorists took Israeli athletes hostage,
resulting in a hotched rescue effort and death. A
documentary feature ahout the incident, _One Day
In September_, was released in 2000, and now Steven
Spielberg is ,vorking on a feature film about the
traumatic event's mournful aftermath. Spielberg has
enlisted the help of Tony 1\ward- and Pulitzer Prizewinning
gay playwright Tony Kushner, who is
currently working on a new draft of the screenplay.
With the visionary _Angels in America_ scribe on
board. the finished product will in all likelihood not
only search the past but explore the fear of terrorism
that afflicts the world today. Still without a title, the
mrwic is slated to star Eric Bana, with a shooting
date of June 2005.
When the Feminist Met the Porn Star
In a fantasy dictionary, next to the word
"heterosexual," there's a picture of Italian porn star
Rocco Siffrcdi. The star of countless straight adult
films, he's internationally famous to a very specific
audience. And in the same dictionary, the phrase
"provocative feminist filmmaker" is accompanied by
the image of French director Catherine Brcillat.
Sound like oil and watcr?-Then you didn't sec
Breillat's shocking art-house hit, _Romance_, an
explicit study of female sexuality that featured
Siffredi. Now the dynamic duo arc at it again, in
Breillat's soon-to-be-released dissection of sexual
mores, _Anatomy of Hell_, based on her own novel,
_Pornocratie_. This time Siffredi plays a VY man, the
unwilling object of a straight woman's affections,
who somehow develops a relationship with her
anyv;-ay. If Brcillat's track record is any indication,
expect unconventional insights, very few laughs, and
plenty of full frontal.
_Romeo San Vicente thinks that Rocco Siffrcdi's •tar
mrn in "New \Vave Hookers 3" made it the best in
the trilogy. He can be reached care of thi~

mile and their deli shops were full of carry
out food. Everything there was certainly a
bargain. On the second day of our stay
there we drove to Leadville, the old mining
town. We toured the old Tabor Opera
House which was built years ago and in
their hay day had some of the finest
entertainers. Most of the restaurants and
cafes in Leadville offered special lunches
for under $5.00! We enjoyed visiting the
small towns on our drive back to Vail.
From Vail we drove into Denver. Several
motel prices were under $40.00 in many
parts of the city. As we mentioned
previously, Colorado is really hurting for
travel business! Most of the gay bars in
Denver have lowered their prices drastically
all day and night. We had screwdrivers and
our cost on them ranged from SI. 00 to
$1.50! What a deal! Almost all of the bars
had extra special events g6ing on each and
every night to draw a crowd. Our favorite
bar in Denver is J. R. 's on 17th Street. They
also have an outside patio on the street side
that is great for people watching.
A lot of restaurants had specials on their
front signs and lots of cheap food can be
found there. By looking in the local
newspapers you can find several two for one
specials at both restaurants and at area
attractions. Denver has it's fair share of
art, history and cultural museums and
galleries. We have always found shopping
in Denver to be terrific. In the Cherry Creek
Shopping Center they have a great Neiman
Marcus store. They have tons of flea
markets, antique shops, thrift shops and
other places on the lower end of the scale to
find special buys. We always bring back a
carload of goodies from our travels. This
trip we even brought back a Ponderosa Pine
tree for our backyard. - next column
When driving to Colorado BE SURE and
stop at the Welcoming Center close to
the State line and pick up a lot of their
free brochures and coupon booklets.
They will save you hundreds of dollars.
Just always remember to have fun when
traveling , meet new people, enjoy
different foods and talk to everyone.
You may just make some new friends
and possibly meet that new someone
special in your life.

y Jack Fertig September 2004
'Soak up compliments, Cancer!" ---•··· Martha Stewart would love this, if she weren't
otherwise occupied: Venus in Cancer is sextile to
Jupiter in Virgo, a domestic-goddess kind of
lineup. Mercury in Leo is semi-sextile to both,
bringing emphatic expression to those homey
skills and issues.
ARIES (tvfarch 21 to April 20): Housekeeping's
not your usual forte, but ,vhat's usual about you
anyway? The stars are now helping you roll up your
sleeves, and even make housework fun! Take a
creative approach, and put that jailbird Martha to
shame.
TAURUS (April 21 to May 20): You've always
taken pride in your home; now you get some
great new ideas to make it e,0en more comfy and
showy. Take a new look at your family and ethnic
traditions. Draw inspiration from your sister. .. or
any ''sister."
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21): This is a good time
to reorganize domestic finances. Examine the
problems, but don't take real action until Sept. 2.
Then take foll advantage of Labor Day sales.
CANCER 0une 22 to July 22): You are looking
especially gorgeous these days. Keep the sweet,
modest smile, but soak up the compliments that are
coming your way. We know those dark moods, too,
so now's the time to take stock of yourself and
affirm your strengths.
LEO 0uly 23 to August 22): Your outspokenness
has been causing some consternation, but you can
clean that up after Sept. 2. In the meantime, show
everyone how modest and understanding you can
be.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22): Your
recent run of good luck gets yet another boost in
community politics. At !east you get an opportunity
to share your ideals. You may prefer to work behind
the scenes, but be involved and trust your instincts.
September 1, 2004
LIBRA (September 23 to October 21):
Blessings come in disguise these days, but
now's the time to see through the ugly
,vrappers. Being emotionally supportive at
work or adding a homey touch to your
,;rnrk space ,viii open up networking
opportunities.
SCORPIO (October 23 to No,·ember 21):
Come out of your shell and sing out, Louise!
You have some great ideas and brilliant
foresight. Let people see ,,;hat you h:;rve to
offer and you're sure to get ahead!
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to
December 20): The stars are making you
saucier and sexier - as if you need the help!
Imagine yourself as a foreign sports star and
play that up. \'vhether you ha,·e a swimmer's
build or a sumo ,vrestler's, you're sure to find
a match.
CAPRICORN (December 21 to January
19): The zodiac's best-kept secret is out of
the bag: You're the sexiest sign of all! Be
homey and domestic to get the one you
,vant, or brilliantly erudite to get _everyone_
you want. And one doesn't rule out the
other, oh ambitious one!
AQUARIUS Qanuary 20 to February 18):
Relationship issues? They're largely about
housekeeping and sex. Pnt on the French
maid's apron and kill two birds ,,-ith one
proverbial stone. Communication usually
helps, too. No relationship? Well, put on the
French maid's apron and go find one. _Zut
alors!_
PISCES (Febrm1.ry 19 to March 19): find a
crearive partner to at least bounce some ideas
off 0£ Crirical feedback is especially helpful
now. Fun and games - preferably at home -
with your partner will help you articulate
problems and find very satisfying answers ..

Lesbian Notions from page-19
The Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund, whose.
mission is to help elect openly gay people
to public office, also undertook damage
control. The Victory Fund bemoaned the
governor's lack of honesty with his family
and issued a reminder that "over 275
openly gay and lesbian officials serve in
public office across the United States, from
city councils, to county commissions, to
state senates, to the U.S. House of
Representatives. The vast majority ... ran for
office and serve openly with little criticism
or extra attention from the public."
Right now I feel more sympathy for the
Victory Fund and all the wonderful lesbian
and gay candidates it supports than for
New Jersey's misguided governor. In the
minds of many Americans with limited
knowledge of gay people, McGreevey will
now be conflated with "Gay Politician,"
the kind of guy who hides his "shameful"
secret, gets the underqualified object of his
desire a lucrative, taxpayer-funded job, and
then is forced out of office by threat of
exposure, causing his family great
emotional pain. (Never mind how many
politicians are guilty of a heterosexual
version of the same thing.) At the same
time, hundreds of lesbians and gay men
are McGreevey's polar opposites: they've
chosen to be honest and out as they pursue
public office, forthrightly making their way
up the political ladder one rung at a time.
Consider, for example, a very different
"Gay Politician." Rep. Tammy Baldwin (DWis.)
didn't catapult into the U.S. Congress.
She started her political career on the
Madison City Council, then went on to the
County Board of Supervisors and the
Wisconsin State Assembly before making a
run for Congress as an out lesbian. There
are many similar stories of gay politicos
who chose a slower path to higher office,
taking small, incremental steps that many
heterosexual politicians don't have to
because they aren't contending with
society's homophobia. George W. Bush, for
example, went from unsuccessful
September 1,2004
businessman to governor of Texas to
president in the blink of an eye.
I am confident that eventually one of the
Tammy Baldwins of our community will make it
all the way to the governor's mansion of some
state. And that election - unlike the strange
coming out of Jim McGreevey will be a
triumph for the gay community.
Reality at the Gas Pump
Think a gallon of gas is expensive?
This makes one think, and also puts things in
perspective.
Diet Snapple 16 oz S1.29 ... S10.32 per gallon
Lipton Ice Tea 16 oz $1.19 .$9 .52 per gal.
Gatorade 20 oz $1.59 . $10.17 per gallon
Ocean Spray 16 oz Sl.25 ..... $10.00 per gallon
Brake Fluid 12 oz $3.15 ...... $33.60 per gallon
Vick's Nyquil 6 oz SS.35 .... $178.13 per gallon
Pepto Bismol 4 oz $3.85 ..... $123.20 per gal,
Whiteout 7 oz $1.39 .......... $25.42 per gallon
Scope 1.5 oz $0.99 ...... $84.48 per gallon
And this is the REAL KICKER ...
Evian water 9 oz $1.49 ........ $21.19 per gallon?!
$21.19 for WATER and the buyers don't
even know the source. (Evian spelled
backwards is Naive.)
So, the next time you're at the pump, be glad
your car doesn't run on water, Scope, or
Whiteout, or God forbid Pepto Bismal or
Nyquil.
Just a little humor to help ease the pain of
your next trip to the pump ...
