Dear Gay People,
I envy you! Hear me out. Well, not lesbians so much, because one is usually hot while the other uses an androgynous girlman name like ‘Alex’ and looks like she just came from a day of chopping down trees and trucking freight and playing xbox, but if they are BOTH hot it’s…
My name is Zachary. People call me things ranging from Penguin to Zachariah so feel free to come up with a unique nickname.
I'm a photography student pursuing my dreams, and I shall post photos on here of my most recent work.
Long time no see! I was told by Laura that I need to start this back up. Suggestions for something to tumbl(e?) about are always nice…
Hope everyone’s 2010 is going amazing so far!
READDDD!!! And spread awareness (especially if you live in Maine!)
The gay marriage rights in Maine are in the hands of University Students!!
There is a vote taking place in Maine to repeal the law stating that same sex marriages are legal. The law, passed 6 months ago, is being voted on and may not allow same sex marriages to happen any longer. This same thing happened in California very recently. One of the issues that came up in Cali, and the same thing is happening in Maine. They are telling voters that if the marriage law stays in effect, the children would be taught about gay marriage in school. THIS IS A GOOD THING!! If the children of America don’t grow up knowing about homosexuals, then there will never be any progress on the topic! When children are given a non-biased view of the topic, OR both sides of the issue, they are more likely to make the decision themselves instead of take the view of their parents.

1. GAY RIGHTS! A Bush administration person was clueless as to why it was wrong to have same sex marriages. :) This is good news guys! The Judge in the courtroom at the time (dealing with marriage laws in California) said that the last marriage he took part on was between an 83 and a 95 year old. Should they only be wed because they can procreate? was it important for them to procreate? Is the only reason to marry to procreate?!? NO! thank you and goodnight! :) (continuing this story later)
2. Those pilots that flew 110 miles past their destination were ‘on their personal laptops’ HAHA! I don’t believe this for one second. First of all, they were unreachable for an entire 30 minutes of the flight, were supposed to start their decent a long time before their turnaround, and they weren’t in contact at all with the air traffic controllers. What were they doing? Use your imagination, yeah, probably all of the above…
3. CNN news cable network performed poorly against the other competition! This is very good. Maybe the New York Times should try for a TV program of some sort. It would make for some decent exposure to the news instead of some biased stuff (Like CNN, Fox, MSNBC) If you’re going to watch the news though, watch CNN, or BOTH Fox and MSNBC, as they oppose each other. I advise you listen to NPR and read the NY Times and the Wall Street Journal. (I read the Times).
4. News Paper Sales are falling…duh
5. Paranormal Activity has had 62.5 million in ticket sales since its release more than a month ago. This is also an “ultra low budget thriller”.
There’s Tuesday for ya! Wednesday coming soon
Today’s interesting news includes a few different articles.
1. (which ties in with another article I read on facebook thru a group I’m in.
A 6 year old was suspended from school for 45 days due to the fact that he was carrying a ‘weapon’ with him. Zachary is super interested in becoming a Cub Scout, and had recently gotten a fork, spoon, knife combination utencil. He was so excited about Scouts that he carried it with him to school to use for lunch.
I feel that the No Tolerance policy is getting way out of hand. This isn’t that extreme of a story compared to the one I read the other day thru the ‘Eagle Scouts’ Facebook group that I’m in. A senior in high school in Lansingburgh NY was suspended from school as well. He had a saftey kit in his car that contained a pocket knife. Not only was he an Eagle Scout, but he was also in the military, taking AP classes, and on the Honor Roll… Let’s just corrale everyone in the nation that owns a pocket knife up and send them to jail for a year or two why don’t we?
2. A lady with an intrauterine insemination procedure produced sextuplets, 3 of which died from premature birth. This type of procedure is what accounts for most of multiple children.
Gay Rights Activists held a march in Washington DC this past weekend. 150,000 people showed up and marched, which makes this the biggest rally for the gay community since 2000. The agenda? Equal Rights. It is believed that the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy in the military should be done away with, and Obama should step up to his commitment to gay rights.
SUMMARY OF ARTICLE 3: The winner of the Nobel Peace Prize needs to stick to his word on equal rights.

October 8th and 9th
Let me start by saying that neither of these dates had an interesting cover page. Both of the paper’s images are bland, or not interesting to my eye.
1. Michelle Obama’s lineage comes from many different races, including Native American! She is also the great-great-great granddaughter of a slave. How or why the Times filled up an entire page with information on this is beyond me.
2. I love this picture:
Yet, in the print it is in black and white, and is much more interesting…
1. The US House votes and states that antigay attacks are hate crimes. This ratio is 281:146. Score for going towards equality!!
2. Awesome piece of art wins 250,000 dollars.
3. Insurance Discounts:
Insurance companies want to give the people that have healthy BMI, cholesterol and blood pressure a larger deduction than the unhealthy citizen. The law currently states the limit is 20%, but this may soon be changed to 30%.
4. Google Books?
More than 10 million books are online! Using Google Books! Check it out.
5. Pepsi sales in the previous year have fallen by 1.5%
And that’s the previous two days in the Times!
First of many (hopefully)
(I FINALLY found something I feel compelled to tumbl() about on a ‘regular’ basis.)
So I read the New York times for a class that I have on Mon/Wed, yet I read the paper on Mon/Wed/Friday.
What I plan on doing is typing up the summary of the interesting articles I read! Whoop-dee-doo, right?
P.S. Facebook now has a tumblr application that posts the feeds to your stalker feed.
