Pete Buttigieg Ends Presidential Campaign on Sunday

This was a little surprising to me, but not a total shock. It’s always important to know when to leave, and I think Buttigieg showed wisdom and intelligence in doing so at this particular time. He did a wonderful job, ran a wonderful campaign, inspired millions of people, and he made history. I think he’ll be around for a while.

With that said, Buttigieg returned to South Bend to formally announce he was dropping out.

“One of those values is truth and today is a moment of truth,” he said. “The truth is that the path has narrowed to a close, for our candidacy if not for our cause.”

There’s more, here. And with a simple search you can find a video of him giving the entire speech. It’s worth watching. 

One of the things I saw Buttigieg facing during his campaign was a new kind of homophobia…homophobia from the left. That was interesting to see. Our so-called allies weren’t there for Pete this time, and many were downright vituperative with their straight white privilege. 

Gay Chemsex Culture In Hollywood

I keep reading about gay chemsex culture everywhere I go these days. I think there are a lot more people involved than we know about. And it seems to be getting more intense. 

I’m linking to an article right now that gets more deeply involved in chemsex…PNP…and what’s involved in living that kind of lifestyle. And yes, chemsex is a lifestyle people choose. You don’t have to do that. They actually refer to it as an epidemic that’s affecting many places. They just happen to focus on Hollywood in this piece. 

Here’s a link to read it all. It’s well-written and you will learn something. The author of the piece writes from first hand experience. 

What readers are saying about “Uncertainty”


“A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed, and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he’ll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no nonsense man, who’s husband died last year. I enjoyed this story.”

What readers said about Kendle’s Fire. 

While the book is easily readable, it also addresses emotions stereotypes and relationships. I would have preferred it be 3 times as long and tragically most guys don’t find happy endings as depicted.. but in a short book, it provides food for thought, clarity and insight.. far more and better expressed than 99% of gay fiction . I don’t think it could have been done better.
