I hear that train a-comin', it's comin' down the track...


I wanted to make sure the marriage lasted the weekend before I started laughing TOO hard.

Pamela Denise Anderson Lee Anderson Lee Anderson Ritchie Anderson…who married Tommy Lee the first time after knowing him for 96 hours and made sex tapes with him that were “stolen and leaked”, and who had a 5-month marriage to Kid Rock (Bob Ritchie), has now married Rick Salomon, who was married to Shannon Doherty for 9 months and is probably best known for marketing his own sex tapes with Paris Hilton.

They got married in between Pam’s performances in Vegas as the eye candy for Dutch magician Hans Klok, no less. This is all so delightfully white trash that it practically writes itself. Tommy Lee & Kid Rock just had a fistfight over Pam at the MTV VMA Awards, and now she goes & marries a fellow amateur porn star. Considering their collective pasts, the government in Baghdad is more stable than this marriage.

These two are single (or double?) handedly turning marriage into a farce, yet no one wants to legalize gay marriages? Why is it that pretty much all the gay friends I have are in stable long term relationships but can't get married, and straight couples treat marriage like it's just something cute to do on the weekend after one too many Red Bull & Jaeger shooters?

There are plenty of opposite-sex marriages that have lasted numerous years. And plenty of straight-sex "couples" who jump around more than some of the names you mentioned.

But how many are good of either kind or how many are bad of either kind doesn't give itself to defense or offense of same-sex marriages.

Touche, good sir. I think I mayhaps wrote before I collected aqll of my thoughts coherently. I guess what I meant was that they won't let gay couples marry, and these supposed role models (God I hope not) of Hollyweird society are what people see as an example of marriages these days on TV.

I myself had a less-than-perfect first marriage, and I know tons of people who have had less-than-perfect marriages. But oddly enough just about all of my gay friends have had pretty solid long term relationships with their partners. One couple I knew back in Maine had been together 25 years, and that was back in 1999. I sincerely hope Paul & Scott are still together.

You will never get an argument from me when you point out the errors of "Hollyweird" (I like that title by the way)

Maybe you should check your circle of friends. I know several married couples celebrating 20+ years of marriage. In fact some with 50+. I even had an aunt/uncle who were married 75 years. She was 14, he was 16 when they married (in that day, that young of an age was common). Friends and family said it wouldn't last. The marriage outlived many of the nay-sayers...

There is not a gay couple that I know of in my circle of friends. It's not that I avoid them, I just don't know anyone who I am certain is gay. Friends at church and at work. Friends at customers I call on. My department at work spans 6 states. None of them are gay (as far as I know).

Pam is tryin' to get that last hurrah in before all the plastic surgery melts. I feel sorry for her kids. They probably can't remember who mommy's married to this week.
