Transcript ^ KITTY'S KORNER by kitty key "Ladies and Gentlemen, from the Jewel Box in Kansas City -- the HI KAMP takes pleasure in presenting Mr. Jan Russell" Who? -- the question flew around the bar. Well, we certainly found out. After the first number, everyone seemed a little skeptic -- like most given to first impressions. However, as theeveningprogress- ed - this entertainer ran thegamit from serious to comedy and even threw in a strip act. It's been a long while since a single performer has captivated an audience. There was such a love between performer and audience, , the time electrified and time stood still. A very convincing and different Ernestine delighted everyone, however, Mr. Russell's interpretation of the late Janis Joplin will bring a stomp to your feet, a clap to your hands, a lump to your throat and a tear to your eyes. Mr. Jan Russell - entertainer extraordinaire - - well done. - - You are truly one hell of an entertainer - BEAUTIFUL! driving on the highway. Some of you who are reading this may say, "this cannot happen to me." In most cases, this is true. However, between the months of May and September in recent years there have been about 200 to 300 such incidents at one rest area per year, all arising out of the use of police decoys and all ending with approximately the same disposition. Furthermore, all the incidents involve male persons who usually plead guilty to one of the charges. Although the above can happen to anyone, the problems presented specifically relate to homosexuals. The authorities claim that they receive complaints from private citizens that they are being bothered by "homos." The police deal with these vague "complaints" by stationing decoys at the rest areas in the hope of enticing homosexuals into violating Massachusetts' antiquarian solicitation laws. In most real situations, when approached by someone who he thinks is gay, the police decoy enters into idle conversation with that person. The gay person may ask the decoy to go into a deeper, denser part of the woods. The police decoy goes along, whereupon the gay person may touch the ^^^ The NUNTIUS DISPLAY ADVERTISING RATES l/8Page $ 20.00 1/4 Page 40.00 1/2 Page 80.00 3/4Page 120.00 Full Page 140.00 1/2 Tone (Pictures) each 2.00 Color (Red, Blue, Greet etc.) 30.00 Calender Listing (on back) 5.00 Calendar Listing FREE if you sell The NUNTIUS FREE Coupons (In Ad) FREE Business Card Size Ad 5.00 Your same size art, trademark, etc., reproduced in ad Free.

These are even more serious charges. The injustice involved in such situations starts, of course, with society's maintenance of the taboo against homosexuality. Straight society's inability to deal with homosexuality as a natural aspect of human behavior forces gay people into anonymous crusing situations such as the rest areas on interstate highways. Such rest areas have the unique quality of being located in relatively rural areas, whereas most crusing spots are in big cities (where police entrapment and/or harassment also occurs). Straight society in effect makes a two-pronged assault on the homosexual -- first, driving him into secrecy to seek sexin dark places, and second, finding the resultant cruising scene disagreeable and worthy of police action. Even apart from the basic injustice which occurs when "heterosexual" and "homosexual" are coerced into two distinct categories, many people might ask the following question: If the police want to deter these "crimes," why don't they station a uniformed policeman with a marked car at the rest areas? This would stop the so-called crimes before they happen and satisfy the "civilian complaints." Instead, the police take a course of action which permits them to lodge two charges instead of one. (For the homosexuals, any police action represents further repression against their attempt to survive in a hostile society.) In such cruising situations, the police decoy could quickly arrest the individual upon the initial solicitation. For some reason, the police do not choose to make the arrest at that point, but instead go into the woods with the in- itir.
