I'm all for freedom of speech, I've no problem with anyone saying whatever they believe, you know, on a Newstalk Vox Pop or whatever, go for it. But Jan Moir through her sick and twisty little article in the Daily Mail, giving credibility to every other little sick twisted little hererosexist out there, frankly pisses me off. She seems to think that Stephen died because he was a homosexual.
Stephen Gately died because that was how it worked out for him, and it's sad. And that's how things go for families all over this country, suddenly, unexpectedly, losing people they love. He didn't die because he was gay.
It doesn't bother me that Jan Moir has the opinion she has, it bothers me that, like Brenda Power, she's paid for it, her opinion pays her rent. Millions fork out daily to pay for her opinion, and companies like Marks and Spencers and Nestle pay to have their adds placed in these newspapers, thus further filling her bank account while she feeds the sick and twisty discriminatory thoughts of heterosexists out there who feel that their opinions are justified and credible, they read it in a major newspaper after all.

I love Liberty Hall on the Dublin sky line and I've always seen it as a legacy building even if SIPTU are going to knock it down.
As part of Ulster Bank Dublin Theatre Festival, from the 24th of September until the 11th of October 2009, Playhouse will transform the iconic Liberty Hall building in Dublin’s city centre into a 50 metre, low resolution, TV screen.
Members of the public are invited to create animations with sound and music, via their website, and broadcast them across the city’s skyline.
It's nice to see it being put to artistic use and it might encourage people to appreciate the building more while it's still there while at the same time having a bit of fun.
