Hurricanes Gustav and Ike
EDITORIAL: "I Wasn't a Prisoner": Why the Fate of the Galveston County Prisoners Should Matter to Us. (Posted at True Tales.)
"No one knew." And indeed, virtually nobody knew what was happening at the jail; nearly all of the media was too busy taking pictures of happy-go-lucky residents cavorting on the stormy beaches of Galveston Island to report that some not-so-happy residents desperately wanted to escape from danger but were not permitted to.
NONFICTION: What Would You Take with You? By Daddy James. (Posted at True Tales.) On the eve of Hurricane Ike, the author learns to see the world from a new perspective.
SPECIAL REPORT: Hurricanes Gustav and Ike Report. Resources and breaking news about the effects of the hurricanes on the gay, leather, bear, and pansexual BDSM communities.
FICTION: CNN Studs: Rob and Anderson Go Storm-Hunting. By Duke Student. (Posted at Nifty.) While this story isn't quite up to par with the rest of this e-zine's contents in terms of literary merit, how could we resist a title like that?
