Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

As you may have heard by now, the Gay Mafia is pink with rage again because the owners of Chick-Fil-A are devout Christians who believe in Traditional Marriage. Apparently that makes them "anti-gay", and unwelcome in places like Boston and Chicago.
The anti-gay views openly espoused by the president of a fast food chain specializing in chicken sandwiches have run afoul of Mayor Rahm Emanuel and a local alderman, who are determined to block Chick-fil-A from expanding in Chicago.
Um, OK, sure. Does that mean I can get my town to ban Abercrombie & Fitch, seeing as how they're as gay as gay gets? I'm thinking "no", but I'm sure Curt will jump right in and defend the anti-Christian radicals calling for Dan Cathy's head on a pike (wrapped in leather, natch...) while labeling me intolerant and hateful for even suggesting that a store could be gay.
Look, if you don't like what young Jefferson McCain dubbed the homophobolicious goodness of Chick-Fil-A, don't eat at Chick-Fil-A. Burger King makes a decent chicken sandwich and I'm sure they'd be happy to take your money. That's your individual decision.
On the other hand, quite a few folks have decided that Chick-Fil-A is da bomb.
When we got there, the line for the drive-through was backed up — at 8 o'clock on a Wednesday night. We ordered five Chick-fil-A sandwiches, two large orders of waffle fries and two large sweet iced teas. When we got to the window, we paid $21.95. because freedom isn't free.
But freedom is in danger thanks to intolerant bozos who hate Christians. Interestingly, they welcome Muslims, even though it's Muslims who stone gay people to death with alarming regularity. I'm sure there's a reason for that, I just don't know what it is, probably because I'm a bigot or something.
And while we're on the subject, maybe Curt could also explain to me why a gay teen commits suicide every time Kirk Cameron gives a speech in Ocean Grove. A prominent Christian defends traditional marriage, and that seems to drive these confused kids to the depths of despair.
Activists representing bullied teens of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community (LGBT) have asked actor Kirk Cameron to have lunch with them during his visit to Ocean Grove, N.J., where he will be speaking on biblical marriage.
"In a kind, respectful and constructive way, we'd like to talk to you about the pain your words about being LGBT have personally caused me and other LGBT youth," 17-year-old Corey Bernstein, a N.J. resident and co-chair of the Youth Caucus at Garden State Equality, wrote in a letter to Cameron and his manager.
"Mr. Cameron, words casting negative judgments about LGBT people not only perpetuate prejudice in our wider society, but also hurt LGBT youth in particular. Some of your public comments about being LGBT have devastated us LGBT youth."
But lunch will fix everything! Here's a kind, respectful, and
constructive suggestion. They should meet up at Chick-Fil-A.
