Joseph K Answers Your Questions

A few entries ago, I referred to the strange search referrals Banality Fair gets as "reader mail." That is inaccurate. They are, at their core, queries and people have been brought here for answers. And, so without further adieu, I'll answer some recent queries.

1. "Receptionist thong?" -- No, I am not a believer in originalism or strict constructionism. People associate originalism with a non-activist judiciary. That is flat wrong. In the name of originalism, Scalia, Thomas and their ilk have time and time again ruled statutes and laws "unconstitutional. By doing so, they have effectively overturned Congress's -- and therefore -- the people's will by somehow diving the hundreds of years old inetentions of some dead cats -- judicial fiat. For example, between 1994 and 2005, Justice Thomas has sought to overturn 68% of the statutes that have come before him for judicial review. If that isn't activist, then I don't know what is.

2. "Vacation hook up stories?" -- One time, I paid for a standard room and got upgraded to a suite. I was like, "Woah, dude! Talk about a hook up!" It was hot, really hot. Well, not the bidet. That was chilly and suprisingly messy.

3. "Gay cruising sites in Charlottesville?" -- Golly, the only suggestion I have for you if you are looking for a hot circle of beef in Charlottesville is to go to Big Jim's BBQ just off US 29 near the 250 intersection. Best burger within 200 miles of DC.

4. "Shirtless men sleeping snuggle?" -- I think the unpopularity of the president will carry over to the 2006 mid term elections. There are too many structural (mostly economic) problems fueling the current discontent that go beyond the Miers fiasco and the Libby indictment.

5. "Purpose of lipstick?" -- Dermal lubricant, Joseph K irritant, take your pick.

6. "Gossipers, backstabbers, napoleonic personalities" -- We all aspire for the trifecta. How did I get there? Hard-work. Perserverence. General shittyness.

7. "Arguments for smoking?" -- For some people, it is the only thing that will make them seem even marginally cool.

8. "Hooker and hos?" -- the line between the two is at about $80 in most urban areas.
