I love how now that Ronnie is dead we conveniently forget that his policies supported apartheid in South Africa, that he funded the slaughter of innocent people in Nicaragua and that he accused mothers on welfare of using food stamps to buy liquor. Oh, and what was that thing he did with trading arms for hostages? WAKE UP PEOPLE. RONALD REAGAN WAS AN ASSHOLE. He may have been cute and charming, but the Gipper was a sickening, evil man inside who caused very bad things to happen to good people. And don't even get me started on the hypocrisy of the stem cell research debate. Goddamn neocons don't give a shit about anyone until something happens to one of theirs. Whew! Take a deep out...COOL OUT!! On a lighter note, a close friend of mine who works in a pediatrician's office told me that two nights ago the doctor on call was paged with an emergency at 3:45 in the morning. Apparently the mother of a 14-yr-old girl was extremely concerned because her daughter was having "vaginal spasms." The doctor was totally confused and asked the mother if the daughter was masturbating. She apparently didn't know or didn't think so. Vaginal spasms. The doctor said to my friend the next day, "I hope she enjoyed them at least." And finally, this week is gay pride in Boston and, thanks to our Supreme Judicial Court, we can celebrate for the first time a sea change in social policy as it relates to same-sex couples. I am so proud to live in this state at this moment in history. HAPPY GAY PRIDE EVERYONE!!!
