Tuesday Stuff:

The largest massacre of LGBT persons in American history happened 40 years ago at the UpStairs Lounge. There's an informative piece on this little-known story here. (Be warned, there are some horrific images at the site.)

George Zimmerman's lawyer opened the trial with a joke. Obviously.

Elsewhere (Fox News), Mark Fuhrman weighs in on the case (perfect!) and declares Zimmerman to be not guilty.

Neil Tennant was offered a judging role on American Idol after Simon Cowell left. He turned down the offer.

Paula Deen has lost a major endorsement deal.

Meanwhile, her sons say she didn't use a word she admits under oath to using. Okay.

Science fiction author and screenwriter Richard Matheson has died. He was 87. (I love the Kolchak movie he wrote.)

I could use a Fresca right about now.

p.s. Butthole.
