Transcript This, That and A Lot of Other Things By Joe Baker Time to clean off the top of my desk and go through my mail once again. The clippings really have been piling up. — o — I received an interesting brochure in the mail. It was from Oklahoma City University advertising its series of seminars on microcomputers for business. Discussions will center on petroleum engineering, oil and gas accounting, stock market analysis and financial planning. Wow! Heavy stuff!! The instructor? J.W. King!!! Could he possibly be the same J. W. King who is that hot porn star with the "big computer"? If he is, that's one seminar I want to attend. — n — I saw a cute personalized license plate the other day. It said: N2WS2. Will the owner please give me a call? My friend Ron wants to meet you. —a — After a homosexual male has had a sex change operation and becomes a female, is he then a heterosexual, bisexual or still a homosexual? I don't have the slightest idea, but Dear Abby does. She says: "If the sex-changed female chooses for her sexual partner another female, she is a lesbian. If she perfers males exclusively, she is heterosexual. If she enjoys sex equally with both males and females, she is bisexual." Now, you know. — D — A reader writes that we should form an organization called Gays and Lesbians Against Drunk Drivers (GLADD). He says Vassar College Adopts Pro-Gay Policy Vassar College in New York has amended its general anti-discrimination policy to include protection based on sexual orientation, reports National Gay Rights Advocates. The move to get this added protection was begun by the Gay Peoples Association of Vassar, a student organization. The policy has now been officially changed and will be published in the 1984- 1985 college catalog. E.K. Weedin, Jr., an associate professor of English, helped the students shepherd the proposal through the proper channels. When he met resistance, Prof. Weedin called upon NGRA, the San Francisco based public interest law firm, for assistance. Prof. Weedin said, "All of NGRA'sinformation and advice was greatly useful and influential on those doubtful and even hostile to the proposal. NGRA effectively answered every one of their objections concered with the law." Junk Queen of Peking Enjoys Trash They call her "the Junk Queen of Peking," reports the Washington Post. She's 43- year-old Sun You-Zhi, whose motto is "It's glorious work to collect junk for socialism." Every month she brings in (SO tons of garbage—anything from used bottle caps to raggedy sneakers—for recycling. Cast- uff meat bones from restaurants are turned into glue. Human hair from barber shops becomes medicine, and empty toothpaste tubes are transformed into sheets of steel. Her only problem is sorting out old newspapers. The Peking Daily is no problem: it can be sold to department stores as wrapping paper. Hut the government says foreign newspapers are too sensitive for re-use. They have to be sent to a pulp mill for reprocessing. the "community" with the biggest drinking problem should form its own self- protective association. He proposes GLADD minibuses to take us to and from the bars. Maybe so. But here's another point worth noting while we are on the subject. There are gay Alcoholics Anonymous groups in Texas. If you have a problem or want more information, call them. Don't drive if you are drunk. I just got my car paid for. — □ — Researchers now believe that you can contract genital herpes from the areas around hot tubs. Chlorine and bromine in spa water kills any herpes virus introducedby infected bathers, they say, but the virus may thrive for up to five hours on adjacent benches, seats and poolside areas. Isn't anything safe anymore? Now, you don't even have to have sex to get those kinds of diseases. And what about toilet seats? Maybe all those claims about getting VD from a toilet seat were true afte- rall! Many thanks to the readers who sent me the beautiful fresh flowers after reading my column on my "Christmas Wish List." Also, to those who sent the kind letters. — D — What's also going on at the New York Times? A recent obituary stated that the deceased, a bachelor, was survived "by his companion of many years." It listed a man's name. Put two and two together, and it looks pretty gay to me. March 2,1984 / The Star 5 Commentary The federal government is taking steps toward regulating the popular and prosperous "Dial-A-Pom" telephone sex services. A new law was signed by President Reagan in December, but the government still hasn't figured out how to enforce it. The law makes it a crime for any person or firm to operate a phone service that has been judged to be "obscene or indecent"—if available to minors. Since there is no way you can stop minors from making a private phone call, it looks like Ma Bell may soon be ordered to start pulling the plug on a lot of sex services. Better make those calls quick. On second thought, don't hurry I see this thing dragging on in the courts for a long time to come. Also, don't forget our Sunday Brunch, noon
