The idea that [cops] have a protectable right to personal privacy while conducting a search of someone’s home is nothing short of absurd.  –  David Carey

Wow, there sure were a lot of celebrity deaths in the past couple of weeks; I think the most obits I’ve had in one Links column before was three or four; it was certainly less than six.  But none of them were musicians, so here’s a parody of one modern ritual surounding the other end of the human experience.  The links above it were provided by Stephen Lemons and Franklin Harris; Dan Savage and Radley Balko; Jesse Walker and Scott Greenfield; C.J. Ciaramella; and Scott Long, in that order.

I find paywalls distasteful, and so many people find this blog valuable as a resource I just can’t bring myself to install one.  Furthermore, I find ad delivery services (whose content I have no say over) even more distasteful.  But as I’m now semi-retired from sex work, I can’t self-sponsor this blog by myself any longer.  So if you value my writing enough that you would pay to see it if it were paywalled, please consider subscribing; there are four different levels to fit all budgets.  Or if that doesn’t work for you, please consider showing your generosity with a one-time donation; you can Paypal to maggiemcneill@earthlink.net or else email me at the same address to make other arrangements.  Thanks so much!
