aTypical Joe: a gay New Yorker living in the rural South

Remember David Horowitz (of scary “Academic Bill of Rights” fame) flacking the made up story regarding a student’s purported allegations of political bias against her criminal justice professor at the UNC? Turns out she’s real and has been found!
...while a Northern Colorado spokeswoman acknowledged Monday that a complaint had been filed, she also said that the test question was not the one described by Horowitz, the grade was not an F, and there were clearly non-political reasons for whatever grade was given. And the professor who has been held up as an example of out-of-control liberal academics? In an interview last night, he said that he’s a registered Republican.
Horowitz now admits that Media Matters got it right.
UPDATE: Then takes it back.
A new Mac mouse?
How’d she find me?
Read your wed site [a Freudian sic] - pretty nice. The pictures very good. But, I must tell you that the word before has an e on the end. That is the only correction I noticed. Otherwise, good job. Why don’t you think about writing a book? I think you would be good.
Hm. Maybe. If Wonkette can do it...

Not so Michael and Terri Schiavo.
The wisest words in the piece last night came from Kay Obara [sp?], whose daughter has been in a diabetic coma for 35 years:
Jeffrey Kofman: Despite her devotion to her daughter’s life and her devout religion, Kay refuses to take sides in the schiavo case. She will not criticize michael schiavo for fighting to remove his wife’s nutrition tube. “I respect his feelings and I respect the parents feelings. I think it’s a no win situation. Too many people got involved.”
I’ve avoided it too. Nightline and the furious rush by state lawmakers and Gov. Jeb Bush to intervene via this bill pushed me to post.
Truth be told, the rhetoric on the left is no match for that on the right. James Dobson last night:
It’s Nazi-esque. It’s what the Germans did in 1939, 1940 and on through the war. It’s where they started.
Who should have

to be kept alive?
My heart goes out to all involved.
And Majikthise points out that Terri Schiavo will be subpoenaed to testify before Congress.
Bill Frist, Republican of Tennessee and the Senate majority leader, issued a statement saying that the woman, Terri Schiavo, and her husband, Michael, were being invited to testify in a Congressional inquiry into the matter later this month.
