Some think my blog is too political, others think it's too prurient. So here is a compromise: All of the U.S. presidents when they were hot young men.

With any luck, the next one will have never been a young man.

Mantiques: Vernon Gray—The Sequel Comments (0)

Img734(Collage & embedded image of folder by Matthew Rettenmund)

Years ago, I bought all the ephemera from a storage unit in Seattle related to a man named Vernon Gray, which led to one of my favorite blog posts.

In consolidating it this weekend, I sifted through his many press clippings, Screen Shot 2016-04-09 at 11.51.34 AM
jotted notes to his mom and dad (which lead me to believe they came back to him after his parents died) and head shots, in the process looking more closely at the bits that confirm his being gay.

One, above, was a totally random tear sheet from a Seattle paper (he lived there at one point, possibly until his death, probably in the 1990s—but IMDb has no idea) showing a terrifically hot shot of a high-jump star in mid-leap. I added the headline from another article, but the photograph was screaming for it.

The rest of his effects include materials related to his participation in a scouting program centered around the Elk Point United Church in Alberta (he was born in Canada), his Elk Point High School student publication The Wapiti, his completely filled (with women's names) dance card from the Wauneita Society Witches' War Dance, many press clippings and stills and some late '60s/early '70s shots of Gray with friends and, apparently, a romantic partner.

It's a bummer looking at it, though; it's the same feeling I get at flea markets when I'm flipping through stacks of old photos—if these are here, the people who took them and are in them aren't.

I guess someone will throw these out only when they're in the process of throwing out my own personal photos.

To end on a lighter note, I found a reference to Gray in Casting About: A Memoir, a book from 15 years ago by David Graham, an actor and voice talent (still alive and over 90) who recalls:

The Art Of The Heel: Roy Cohn, One Of The Worst People Ever, Was Donald Trump's Mentor Comments (0)

I somehow never realized that Donald Trump had such a close connection with Roy Cohn, the textbook-villainous, self-hating gay creep whose malevolence was balls-deep in the McCarthy hearings, and who has since been immortalized in Tony Kushner's Angels in America.

Politico's Michael Kruse contributes a trending-bait story on the bond, in which Trump's very first public political utterance—about Soviet missile proliferation—is attributed to Cohn's advice to bring it up in the course of a Washington Post interview about Trump's businesses:

In the formative years of Donald Trump’s career, when he went from a rich kid working for his real estate-developing father to a top-line dealmaker in his own right, Cohn was one of the most powerful influences and helpful contacts in Trump’s life.

Over a 13-year-period, ending shortly before Cohn’s death in 1986, Cohn brought his say-anything, win-at-all-costs style to all of Trump’s most notable legal and business deals. Interviews with people who knew both men at the time say the relationship ran deeper than that—that Cohn’s philosophy shaped the real estate mogul’s worldview and the belligerent public persona visible in Trump’s presidential campaign.

Illuminating to realize Cohn was the architect of Trump's response to the feds when the Trumps were accused of racial discrimination at they Brooklyn and Queens rental properties.

Even more illuminating is this tidbit from the piece:

He elaborated in an interview in 2005. “Roy was brutal, but he was a very loyal guy,” Trump told author Tim O’Brien. “He brutalized for you.”

Trump, in the end, turned some of that cold calculation on his teacher, severing his professional ties to Cohn when he learned his lawyer was dying of AIDS.

Sounds like they were the perfect couple of douchebags.
