Ladies and gentlemen, I give you The President of the United States. By the way, it is Haberman, not Habberman.

I'M NOT SURE WHAT YOU THINK I SHOULD HAVE DONE. Called the Queensland police? Before retweeting something that sounds legit?

Wait, I am not getting your point. Seriously. Is this a hoax I should have known about?

Wait a minute there, bucko. This is a story that SOUNDS true, but I have no way of verifying. The shitty thing to do is just link to it. I linked to it with a note of possible skepticism. No foul.

This is one of those stories you desperately want to be true. Please tell me it is true.

Sure, but I think it's also more noble and human. I think a woman wants to look like herself, and be appreciated for that.

Um, yes. But it degrades us all. It's not a "transition." It's a mindless clearing of throat. Let's stop doing it.

Sure, np. I consider that a compliment. Too often I have been (accurately) likened to Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and (not coincidentally) Ron Jeremy.

Important tip for younger men: Don't EVER tell a woman she looks exactly like someone else. Even if the someone else is, say, Scarlett Johansson. I know, but you have to trust me here.

Back in my day, "cleanup" was where the best hitter was parked.

I love Powell's 1990 statement that he sort of regretted his vote, but didn't think the case was very important.

Right, I understand. I wasn't suggesting it did. And thank you so much for responding. I really appreciate it.

Larry, I'm writing a book that briefly mentions Bowers v. Hardwick. Am I right the Georgia law had only (or almost only) been applied to gays?

Thought I'd never see a baseball story that explained how a slugger who hadn't been hitting had been demoted down in the batting order, to cleanup.
