The Adventures and Misadventures of a Neer Do Well Artist Living in Baltimore.
I am a visual artist and writer living in Baltimore. I don't have any artist friends. Frankly, artists scare me, there so darn flaky. The above picture is either of me or proof that I'm a pretty decent artist. My goal is to be a self sufficient artist, whereas I wouldn't have to do something else in the day in order to eke out an existence. I also like to attend various cultural events around town. I go to plays, the symphony, etc. Also, I have Asperger's Syndrome. I found this out recently and it has explained a heck of a lot as to why I am as I am.

All this week on local talk radio the subject has been about gay marriage. This is all because of a recent court decision where a Baltimore judge struck down a gay marriage ban.
I feel that this whole subject is a non-issue. In my opinion gays should have the the same right to marry as straight couples do. I feel that if two people love each other then they should have the right to marry no what there genders may be. Personally, I can not wait until the day that Maryland joins Massachusetts in allowing gay marriage.
The only people who seem to be against gay marriage are religious fundamentalist who believe that everyone should follow their religious guidelines. Who do they think they are, the Taliban?
To paraphrase Bono from Bullet the Blue Sky off of the Rattle and Hum cd, The God I believe in teaches love not intolerance, mister.
