Vasectomy May Be Linked To Dementia:

A recent study by Northwestern University researchers revealed that men with a rare kind of dementia are more likely to have had a vasectomy than those who do not have cognitive problems. Called Primary Progressive Aphasia, or PPA, this dementia affects an individual’s ability to express himself, impairing word recall and ability to understand words.

Well, of course!  Just look at your cat or dog after you get him fixed.  HE doesn’t act the same either, does he? 

Donors Defect To Clinton Campaign After Obama’s Fails To Return Phone Calls:  (h/t Huffpo)

Sen. Barack Obama’s (D-Ill.) presidential campaign may have missed out on millions of dollars by failing to return the calls of a small group of highly influential donors and operatives in New Jersey.

The high-rollers, having waited in vain for more than a month for Obama’s campaign to get back in contact, signed up to support Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.).

Is this proof that Obama isn’t ready for the White House?  Maybe, maybe not.  But if he can’t ensure that his own phones are even staffed properly, it doesn’t exactly raise confidence, now, does it?

Coors Light Sponsors Florida Gay Rodeo:

Coors Light has signed on as the platinum sponsor of the Florida Gay Rodeo Association’s (FGRA) largest event, the 2007 Sunshine Stampede. Coors is a leader among U.S. companies in its support of its GLBT employees and consumers and will be a great asset to the Sunshine Stampede, which will be held the weekend of April 13-15, 2007, at the Bergeron Rodeo Grounds in Davie, Florida, near Fort Lauderdale.

Personally, I just don’t care for “Sunshine Stampede.”  Beers, Queers, and Steers has more of a ring to it, don’t you think?
