In honor of our heat wave today.
Andy Warhol Monument to be Unveiled in NYC’s Union Square Today
By RICH CALDER @ New York Post
Washington. Lincoln. Ghandi … and now Warhol.
The nearly 10-foot-tall statue by visual artist Rob Pruitt will set up outside a building at Broadway and 17th Street that housed the final rendition of Warhol’s legendary “Factory” from 1973 to 1984.
Warhol and his contemporaries previously produced silkscreen paintings, magazines and other works out of a site a block away from 1967 to 1973. The original Warhol “Factory” on E. 47th Street operated from 1962 to 1967.
Anderson Cooper is one of those men I haven’t really spent any time thinking about. He doesn’t fly into my radar. People get so angry when a gay public figure doesn’t go public tell everyone how GAY they are. Him being a flaming homosexual is not his job, reporting the news is his job. I think this may be a case of discretion, which I think more people would benefit from having. I think gays should not take it so personally and mind their own business.
Q: I’m confused by Anderson Cooper. Gawker says he brought his boyfriend to Mardi Gras. I know his whole schtick is that he doesn’t talk about his personal life because he doesn’t want it to compromise his neutrality as a journalist, which is standard behavior and something that I have no problem with. But he is far from neutral when it comes to LGBT rights. He’s been very active in covering anti-bullying news and other things relevant to the LGBT community, and in my opinion, I think that compromises his neutrality. Also, can we really consider him in the closet if he attends such public events as Mardi Gras with his “boyfriend?
I don’t know what to think. Some say he should disclose his sexuality just as he discloses that he comes from wealthy family and modeled for Calvin Klein. On the other hand, he’s talked about LGBT topics, favorably, in public before. It’s almost as if, by not coming out, he’s letting people pass some unspoken judgment about him and his opinion of/relationship with homosexuality. Bu why should I even be concerned with his personal life, especially considering I have the privilege of not being in the lime light? — Chaz, New Orleans, LA
A: If Anderson Cooper really is gay, I absolutely support his right to be publicly closeted if that’s his choice. Only he can decide what’s right for him.

I am not sure showing up to work after your shit, shower, and shave, smelling like Whiskey would be the best idea.
Shave with some whiskey, my friends. “This is a wonderfully rich, lathering shave soap with a lovely scent of WHISKEY. Blended into this soap is bentonite clay, also referred to as Montmorillonite, one of the most effective and powerful healing clays used to treat both internal and external maladies. Bentonite is a highly absorbent clay that pulls oils and toxins from the skin.” Blackbird carries the line.
