Wanda Sykes

Wanda Sykes

Organizers of a Las Vegas rally against California’s ban on same-sex marriages got a surprise appearance from comedian Wanda Sykes, who happened to be in town performing at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. “You know, I don’t really talk about my sexual orientation. I didn’t feel like I had to. I was just living my life, not necessarily in the closet, but I was living my life,” Sykes told folks at the rally, hosted by the LGBT Center of Southern Nevada. “Everybody that knows me personally they know I’m gay. But that’s the way people should be able to live their lives,” said the actress, who disclosed to the crowd that she married her partner on Oct. 25. However, the passage of California’s Proposition 8, which bans same-sex marriage, made her feel like she was “attacked.” “Now, I gotta get in their face,” she said. “I’m proud to be a woman. I’m proud to be a black woman, and I’m proud to be gay.”


Sean Levert

The Cleveland Plain Dealer is reporting that Sean Levert’s death in Ohio’s Cuyahoga County jail in March may have been avoided had he been incarcerated in either of Ohio’s two other major urban-county jails. Officials at the Franklin and Hamilton county jails said their facilities have policies that would not have denied the R&B singer his doctor-prescribed anxiety medication, as staff at the Cuyahoga County Jail did during what became the last six days of life. A county coroner’s report concluded that Levert’s withdrawal symptoms from the drug Xanax contributed to the complications that stopped his heart on March 30. Levert was waiting for a doctor’s evaluation to decide if he should be allowed the medicine. The visit was scheduled for April 8.
“If he had been in our jail and Xanax was on the formulary – if it was a standard-issue drug – he would have seen a doctor who would prescribe it,” said Mark Barrett, chief deputy for jail administration in the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office.


President-Elect Barack Obama

President-elect Barack Obama says his weekly radio addresses, a tradition initiated by Ronald Reagan, will also be available for Internet users via YouTube. Obama’s four-minute address Friday at his transition office in Chicago was posted Saturday through a YouTube link on his transition Web site, And he will continue to do the videos when he takes office on Jan. 20, reports the Associated Press. Transition leaders and policy advisers will also appear in videos on a regular basis, Obama spokeswoman Jen Psaki said. Other officials, such as Cabinet members, could also take part. A two-minute video of Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett is already on the Web page. In it, Jarrett discusses recent staff decisions and the ethics policy in place for the transition. “We’ll be back frequently to give you updates,” she tells viewers.
