Should Transgender Girls be Allowed to Play in Girls Sports?

My answer is: absolutely! Later this month (July, 2015) the New York State Public High School Athletic Association is expected to create new guidelines for transgender athletes.

Lynette Adams, reporter for News 10 WHEC Rochester, invited me to talk about whether or not transgender athletes have any inherent advantages in sports. I appreciated the opportunity to discuss the realities about such concerns and met with her for an interview. A brief sound byte from the interview made it into the final story and can be seen in the video posted above. Here’s a link to the story on the WHEC News 10 website where the video and text copy can be found.

“A mild mannered accountant reveals his cross dressing secret to his therapist. Captain Cross Dresser takes the law into his own hands, falls into the face of danger but then rises as the legend is born.”

“Captain Cross Dresser” is an awesome animated comedy short that I had the pleasure of enjoying after finding a write up and link to it on Tracy’s Happy Place. Please check out the 9 minute comedy short here on

House, M.D.

House, MD cast

Some of my co-workers regularly talk about the Fox TV show “House”. Having never seen the show before, they tried to describe it to me. It’s a medical drama centered around a misanthropic, yet brilliant doctor named Gregory House. After repeated conversations about House’s off the wall treatment of people in addition to some nice eye-candy in the show (something about a woman called “Thirteen”?), I was rather curious about it.

The Greatest American Hero

The Greatest American Hero Cast

Do you remember this show from the early 80’s? Quirky school teacher, Ralph Hinkley (William Katt), and down-and-out FBI agent Bill Maxwell (Robert Culp), are thrust into an odd crime-fighting partnership after being approached by an alien spaceship in the desert. Ralph is given a “super suit” (aka, the “red jammies”) by the aliens and told to work together with Bill and make the world a better place. Ralph looses the suit’s instructional manual out in the desert. The result is a reluctant and unlikely super hero, complete with super hero powers… who has some serious trouble using them – especially when flying.

“Life on Mars” Series Finale

Life on Mars

If you’ve been following the show like I have, you know the deal. Detective Sam Tyler gets hit by a car in 2008 and is knocked out. He wakes up to find himself somehow stuck in 1973, working for the 125 (precinct) while trying to figure out how he ended up in the past and how to get home to 2008.

If you’ve never seen the show, it was a really cool mix of sci-fi, 70’s cop show, and detective mystery, laced with humor and loaded with style. It featured an amazing cast of actors and well written story lines. Sadly, it lasted but a single season and just ended this past Wednesday.

New TV Stand

TV Stand

Last week, my wife and I went out to a local store and bought a new TV stand for our living room. I was perfectly happy with the old TV stand, but my wife had her heart set on something different and since money grows on trees…

Like most furniture purchased in a discount retail store, this baby came nicely packed in a box, which meant I’d be spending some time on my knees putting it together. I really don’t enjoy the process of assembling furniture. It would be so much nicer if they just came with a button and when you pushed it, presto – instant TV stand, fully assembled!
