New Superhero: Blue Ear

This is a pretty cool story. A 4 year old who is deaf in one ear and poor hearing in the other ear decides that he won't wear his hearing aid anymore because, well, "superheros don't have hearing aids." His mom wrote to Marvel and they sent back 1980s comics with Hawkeye, who used a hearing aid at that time, and they also created a comic for the boy "Hawkeye and the Blue Ear". He has a couple stories in front of it, so just fast forward to 5:55

Jim Parsons is gay

Jim Parsons is gay you say? No way!

Actually, there is an awful lot of homosexuality in hollywood, so its not really a surprise that any particular actor would come out. Parson who is best known for his role as Sheldon Cooper on The Big Bang Theory recently revealed this to a New York Time's columnist. You can see more at SFGate

I don't have a whole lot to comment on the story, but I would point out that blogger Hawaiian Libertarian has several good items on the show.

EUR/USD: The euro slipped below the 1.2500 level

The euro slipped below the 1.2500 level to hit its lowest rate in almost 2 years at 1.2495 at the beginning of the New York session, weighed down by new concerns about Spain, although it managed to quickly bounce.

However, the recovery stalled at the 1.2545 area, where the 20-hour SMA offered resistance, confining the cross to a stage of sideways consolidation between those levels. At time of writing, EUR/USD is trading around 1.2515, down 0.1% on the day.

Roseanne Barr defends Hustler

Roseanne Barr defends Hustler's photo of S.E. Cupp

In response to a tweet by Ms. Magazine's Robin Morgan, Green Party presidential candidate Roseanne Barr said defending conservative commentator S. E. Cupp "is more disgusting" than Hustler's explicit photo.

"Larry Flynt and the editors of Hustler [have] the apparent IQs of inebriated gnats," Ms. Magazine's Robin Morgan tweeted Wednesday.

Barr - who is running as a feminist candidate in the Green Party presidential primary - responded by saying "your defense of women who hate women is more disgusting than putting pics of penises in their mouths, excuse me!"

NOW (National Organization for [Liberal] Women] has remained silent, but Sandra Fluke and Planned Parenthood PAC have both spoken against it.

Hustler Posts Fake Explicit Image of S.E. Cupp

According to The Blaze Hustler has posted a fake photo of the good looking S.E. Cupp.

Allah Pundit wonders if S.E. Cupp can sue Allah notes that although Hustler has done similar things in the past with a caricature of Jerry Falwell, Allah notes that the ruling pointed out that the "speech could not reasonably have been interpreted as stating actual facts about the public figure involved." Apparently this image of S.E. Cupp is photoshopped with all the quality that one would expect a modern magazine would be able to do.
