    Gee, for the umpteenth time, McCoy got it wrong.

    As least he’s consistent…ly wrong.

    Yeah, all those left-wing beauty contest judges …

    Sorry, but I don’t see any problem with her answer. A) why are they asking political hot-topic questions in beauty pageants? What ever happened to all that world-peace, feed the hungry, teach children to read stuff? It’s like they WANTED to pressure people into giving the “popular” answer.

    And B) so she’s against gay marriage. So’s half the country. Why jump her butt about it? If she said “I believe in gay marriage” she’d have about the same amount of people who agree with her, nationally, but they wouldn’t be griping about her answer.

    They asked her opinion. She gave it truthfully. They should shut up. It’s not like she said “I eat dying African AIDS victims for breakfast” or something.

    HOWGOZIT, thanks. It’s not often I get backed up on something I say. But like Miss California, I guess I’m used to being alone in my opinion. Kinda Ironic she’s from Cali, though ain’t it? First Prop 8 (Which the entire state voted fairly on I might add) and now this. God does interesting things with history. I was doing a study in the book of Ruth. You know how it starts? In Bethlehem (which is called the house of Bread) there’s a FAMINE! No Bread in the House of Bread! Irony is so funny that way.

    As it happens, LibrarianinTraining, I agree. I saw nothing wrong with her answer. I disagreed with her opinion, but I disagree with a lot of people’s opinions, and that’s just fine. What matters is that she presented her opinion simply and matter-of-factly, without being hateful or rude.

    Hilton’s reaction was that of an absolute baby.

    LibrarianInTraining; I think you’re right. I don’t share her opinion, but she’s entitled to it.

    Not bad for a lib’ral, hey?

    Corosive, I don’t hate liberals. I don’t hate anyone. Everyone’s entitled to their opinion. And I think Miss Cali was trying to say at the start of her answer that that is what makes this country so great. I just also agree with the Bible. But this is not the time nor place for deep theological debates.

    I gotta finish my laundry. God bless, all!

    Hilton publically asked a biased question. Miss California gave a personal and honest answer. He started it. She finished it. She is a hero. He is a zero.

    The left does not applaud Obama when he states an opposition to same-sex marriage, but we aren’t going to turn on him for it either. Obama’s personal belief in one-man-one-woman marriage has NOT led him to call for a constitutional amendment, or laws outlawing same-sex marriages.

    If you oppose same-sex marriages, then don’t have one.

    And the argument against Prop. 8 is not that the election was rigged, but that it should never have been put up to a popular vote in the first place. The constitutional amendment process should NOT be used to TAKE AWAY rights from a protected minority. Elsewhere, the California constitution states that gays and lesbians are to be granted equal rights under California law, and Prop. 8 is in direct contradiction to that.

    LibrarianInTraining, where are you studying? Do you prefer Dewey, or LC? Are you coming out west for the ALA in June?

    I’m a great admirer of librarians. They support freedom of speech, and free access to information. I read banned books!

    (They can also get freaky, when you get ‘em alone. Must come from having to be so quiet on the job.)

    fritzoid, I’m not actually studying anywhere. I can’t afford school right now, because my grandmother is dying, and I promised I’d take care of her, seeing as how she raised me and all. I prefer LC, but only because it’s what I’m used to. I worked a year in my college library, and by the third month, I was running the place on Saturdays by myself. There are only two schools in the state of Florida that offer Library Science degrees. And in order to be a librarian in a public library, you need a Master’s.

    I always wanted to be a teacher. But I was under this strange delusion that all kids were like me. They liked learning. Dead wrong. I was a teacher’s aide for two years in high school. Didn’t work. So I figured, in a library, I can teach people who WANT to learn. After all, no one’s forcing them to be there, like they would be at school. And yes, according to my hubby, I can be pretty naughty. ;-)

    Married, huh? sigh

    Back in college, I worked in the Library for the School of Library and Information Science (just as an undergrad assistant) at Illinois (DEWEY!). So the people who used the library were studying to be librarians, and you’d IMAGINE that they would have had some idea of how to do research. Alas, such was not always the case. :-)

    Good luck to you, and don’t give up your dreams! Even if you’re not in a position to help OTHERS learn, if you stop learning YOURSELF you begin to die.

    It started with my grandfather. He was a real know-it-all. Always got suspended from school for arguing with the teachers. We’d watched Jeopardy every night. And occasionally, they got an answer wrong (The judges would.) so my grandfather would holler “RESEARCH!” and we’d dig out the encyclopediae and look up the correct answers. So I learned research at a young age.

    And yes, married, and very happily too. My husband fixes computers, but he’d rather be a restaurateur (He wants to open his own steak house). And he’s trying to write a novel on the side.

    But fear not! Keep looking, and I’m sure you’ll find a naughty librarian of your own.

    I need to find this library school you worked at. Like I said, there are only two schools here that offer the degree: Florida State, and University of South Florida. And I could never go to Florida State. GO GATORS!

    Howgozit – funny you only picked up the convenient half of what LIT said. If she had said she was pro-gay marriage all the righties would be in a lather.

    Personally I don’t give a bleeep what Perez Hilton and some beauty queen “thinks.”
