Also, while reading the blog, I found out that the Metropolitan Community Church has started Sunday services at ASA (Amigos Siempre Amigos). According to the post, the services are open to the entire gay community.
Beautifulmag, a European blog, has an interesting article called, "The Real Beauty of Men, According to Ernest Montgomery. As regular readers to the blog know, I'm a big Ernest Montgomery fan. And I'm an even bigger fan of his photography. Now, if he would only let me come over and "help" more.
The New York Times had a really nice piece the other day about Robinson Cano, New York Yankees player. He is trying to buy an ambulance for his hometown of San Pedro de Marcoris. But, he doesn't make the millions that other Dominican players make, but he is trying to do his part. And. He ain't bad on the eyes, if you know what I mean. Kudos!!
Another interesting article I came across is about justice, or the lack thereof, in Latin America. There is a special blurb about the Dominican Republic. Two-thirds of the prisoners in Dominican jails have not been charged with a crime, tried or convicted. They use what is called "preventive custody." I love that term. It basically means you are going to stay in jail until we decide (or your family comes up with enough money) you should get out. And you thought your life was difficult.
Keeping with the theme above, White Sox player, Juan Uribe, is now in the clear. He was being investigated for shooting 2 people. I wonder how he got out of the country and didn't have to go into "preventive custody?"
