    Papal Position

    In an interview with The Associated Press last week, Pope Francis said homosexuality is a sin but not a crime.

    Some gay activists responded that the pope's outfit is a sin AND a crime.

    He Should Know

    The former boyfriend of George Santos told CNN it was no surprise to him that Santos got himself elected to Congress. "What he always looked for was fame and power," said Pedro Vilarva. "That's all he cared about and he got it."

    Despite the plethora of calls for the Long Island Republican to resign over his exhaustive lying, Santos will stay put, his ex firmly believes. "His ego is too big," said Vilarva.

    Fame. Power. Lies. Ego. Republican. Good Lord, George Santos is Donald Trump's Mini-Me.

    The new story is that "George Santos" was a Drag Queen, and it’s honestly the only thing I like about him.

    I have no classified documents in my residence.

    I'm starting to feel like the only one.

    A Perfect Fit

    It looks like Rep. George Santos will sit on the House Small Business Committee and the House Science, Space and Technology Committee.

    Santos must be thrilled. What could be better for the person who created Amazon, Microsoft and the universe?

    Someone once asked me, "How long does it take to do your hair." I said, "I don't know, I'm never there."

    Bank Account

    Many afternoons I stop in at Bank of America to make deposits for the small company I work for. Today's visit came with a show.

    Drive-throughs being a rare commodity these days, I walked into a BoA branch in north Seattle that I've patronized many times. As usual, there was only one teller, so I stood in the poky line.

    Suddenly shouts came from the cubicle area. A white woman was yelling at the temporary bank manager who'd apparently been helping her. He was a slightly built man of indeterminate race with an advanced fashion sense. At first I couldn't make her words out, then I heard, "I'd hate to dress like you do! I'd be embarrassed!"

    This from a person in old-school gray sweatpants.

    "I'm a businesswoman!" she bellowed. "Are you gay?!" she demanded.

    The manager, trying to get her out of his cubicle, kept his voice low, but he answered, "Yes I am."

    "You should kill yourself!" she yelled. "I hate gays! I hate Blacks, and spics," and some others I couldn't hear. By now I got a good look at her, and saw a face that suggested mental illness. This wasn't simply a hater, so I abandoned my impulse to stand in queer solidarity with the manager. Getting her out of the building was clearly what mattered.

    He succeeded, after she ranted some more, and we in line remarked to each other on the unexpected excitement.

    When I reached the teller, she told me that they're trained to deal with such events. I talked to the security guard outside, who said he's there to stop bank robberies, and it's the bank employees who are tasked with handling unruly customers.

    Those employees aren't paid enough. And after enduring that homophobic spectacle, neither am I.

    I've held out hope that George Santos isn't actually gay. He lied about everything on his way to becoming a congressman from New York, so why not that?

    Today I read that Brazilian prosecutors are pursuing fraud charges against Santos, who admitted to stealing a man's checkbook, which had been in the possession of Santos's mother, in 2008. According to CNN, Santos used the checkbook "to purchase clothing and shoes."

    He's gay.

    This Week's Quote

    Republican cardio consists of running from reporters who have questions about your lies, running away to Cancun during a crisis, and running away from a riot you encouraged.
