I have to admit that MassNews has gotten me hooked once again. It was through Massnews that I first started reading about Article 8 (that was in the days when Amy Contrada was writing for Massnews). If you missed it, Bay Windows "outted" Ms. Massresistance:
"Amy from Article 8" is a pseudonym used by Amy Contrada. Contrada gave her full name when she testified at last week's legislative hearing on two bills that would forbid students to hear any discussion of LGBT issues at school unless their parents had signed a special permission slip. (Contrada told the legislative committee that gay-straight alliances were directing their members to the Boston Alliance of Gay and Lesbian Youth, which was in turn directing students to a Web site with information on sexual reassignment surgery, for the express purpose of encouraging boys to have the surgery.) I saw Contrada at the hearing and listened to her testimony. I saw her again at the Love Won Out ex-gay conference Oct. 29, during which she snapped photos of demonstrators and argued with police officers. "Amy from Article 8" recounted this same incident on the air, and it was clearly Contrada's voice.But I digress, the outrageousness of MassNews articles are priceless. Oh yes, J. Edward Pawlick is still pushing his books about the New York Times and Margaret Marshall (did you know he started Lawyer's Weekly? That's a joke, he says it in about every article that includes his name) They had hired a new editor to replace Pawlick who was supposedly "touring" the country promoting his book but apparently he's back and he's back with avengence!
The reason I think he's back is because the stories are once again larger than life. Even though they are like Massresistance (repeating the same stories over and over again) there is much more unintended humor in them. It has none of the hatred clearly evident in Article 8's or Massresistance's postings, the stories are just laugh out loud fun with a bit of the tragically sad realization that some over at MassNews has seriously lost their mind. Such an example:
Is this great stuff or what? I must say I get a big kick out of the loads of money they are spending on radio ads (It seems that Article 8 could really use the money too since they are delinquent in their rent AND phone bills) but apparently money means nothing to the Pawlick's since they state that they spent over $100,000 in 2002 to collect signatures to get the marriage amendment on the ballot (it didn't work). Who can forget these beauties:
- Is Masturbation a Constitutional Right?
- Lesbians & 'Feminist Theory' Destroy Children of Straight Fathers and Mothers in Mass.
- WE'RE WINNING!!! THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!!! (This is from Nov. 7th)
- "Gay marriage" would be the final triumph of NOW's sexual "revolution"
All I can say is I want what he's taking!
