You readers and listeners have been so gracious with me, allowing me to have a voice in your daily lives. I thoroughly enjoy interacting with you, and I cannot thank you enough for your constant support.
Here's to one more year of the Riot! To kick it off right, let's get to some great news headlines.
In other news: The geniuses over at the Superbowl have reportedly denied a gay dating site from airing a commercial during their show. CBS, who is airing the country's most expensive commercials, claimed that all the spots were full, while a spokesman for the website claimed that was bogus:
It's clearly a form of discrimination that we're getting the runaround, that we're not being told the truth. Quite frankly, there is a lot of ad space available -- a lot of the companies that typically advertise during the Super Bowl are not advertising this year.
You know what... It's the Superbowl. Testosteronefest. I'm not going to fault CBS for this one, whether or not they're lying about having enough spots. It is most definitely not the audience for that. Maybe they should look at getting their commercial aired during the Oscars? I put the commercial below for your giggling pleasure. It's pretty tame, but definitely would disgust the Superbowl audience.
In paganish news: I'll talk about this more on the blog tomorrow, but the Wild Hunt reported ACTUAL NEWS (surprising, no?) today when Jason blogged about a Supreme Court case in California that might possibly legally turn paganism and other smaller religions in 'second-tier' religions. This would legally allow institutions to discriminate against people of those faiths by disallowing them access to their religious materials, rituals, and clergy. I encourage you to check out the article and let me know what you think.
