Here's a little round-up of this and that from around the state that I thought you should know! As always, leave more stories and links that we might have missed in the comments!

* Former Congressman Mark Foley on the Radio - Foley addresses his scandal with congressional pages and his sexuality.

* Divorce in America: Florida counties are tops - How's that "marriage protection" working out, Amendment 2 supporters? Looks like straight folks are destroying marriage just fine without the "gay agenda."

* ConservaGays Clueless on Healthcare - "GOProud op-ed: Expanding government-run health insurance means expanding discrimination against gays." New right-wing gay org jumps on the teabagging train and bashes healthcare using scare tactics (shocker!) on LGBT people.

* Group sponsoring three-day conference on AIDS/HIV awareness in West Palm Beach - the Ujima Men's Collective, an organization for black gay men, wants to enlighten black men on the ravages of HIV/AIDS at a three-day conference starting at noon Friday in West Palm Beach.

What's going on in your neck of the woods? And don't forget to look through all the week's posts to see what you might have missed!

Foley is amazing, but I suppose it is difficult to live just on your doctor husband's salary. :) I only hope he has become humble at last and able to build bridges rather than the obstacles he erected while in office. He is a total hypocrite out of his own mouth. Someone who would do anything to be elected including compromises with ones self and demonizing those like himself.

Sudsey tells me he hangs out in the mornings at the Starbucks in Lake Worth should you want to meet him.

Thanks for the info Honey!
