Duke Mason interviews former first daughter Patti Davis, who has an interesting perspective on her dad Ronald Reagan's reputation as the man who let AIDS run amok:

... I'm not gonna make excuses for, um, the failure of his administration to address the AIDS crisis when it was going on—I mean, it was a failure ... It hurts my heart that that, that that  happened, on so many levels. One of my father's flaws was that he delegated authority to other people, and relied on them to, uh, give him the appropriate information on things ...presidents get briefings every morning, um, they're busy, so their time watching CNN is, uh, is limited, so they do rely on people to bring them information on what was going on, and there were people around him who did not want him dealing with the AIDS crisis, and I'm not making excuses for him, I'm saying that's a flaw of his, and in this case it turned out to be a really tragic flaw.

She goes on to say he only knew what was going on once Rock Hudson died, and only then because Hudson was a friend of his.

She says her father would not have supported Donald Trump's rhetoric, and also takes time to promote her new book, The Earth Breaks in Colors.

Terry Wogan, One Of England's Most Popular TV Hosts, Has Died @ 77 Comments (0)

Terry Wogan, whom many Madonna fans remember for his classic Truth or Dare-era sit-down with the Queen of Pop, has died at 77.

In a statement, his family said:

Sir Terry Wogan died today after a short but brave battle with cancer. He passed away surrounded by his family. While we understand he will be missed by many, the family ask that their privacy is respected at this time.

Wogan was a philanthropist whose involvement in the BBC Children in Need cause went back decades. He had unexpectedly pulled out of the latest one due to his failing health.

SAG Taps LGBT-Themed Winners Comments (0)

Full list of SAG Awards winners right here.

I thought the show was great, and felt right, as always. However the SAG membership works its voting is superior to the Oscars, and has the benefit of not coming dead-last in the season so as not to be overly influenced by other shows.

LGBT highlights include wins for Orange Is the New Black (see victory dance above) for comedy series and Uzo Aduba for her performance on the same show; Jeffrey Tambor for Transparent; and Alicia Vikander for The Danish Girl. Also, Queen Latifah won for Bessie, and I hear she liked women. Bessie Smith, that is.

This is the latest in a series of posts by The Underwear Expert.

Everyone knows that jockstraps aren’t just for sports anymore. Underwear brands have made jockstraps their own with stylish designs more about fashion than athletic function. They take the sex appeal of a jockstrap and turn it into something revealing and bold to wear. What’s even better, the jockstrap’s design enhances your front and your back.

Jocks are one of the skimpiest underwear styles around. This leaves underwear brands with little room to incorporate their style. That’s why most brands do it big when doing jocks. Even simple jock designs manage to do it big, making the most of the underwear’s sexy silhouette. You get a pouch and some straps to leave an impression. And believe us, it’s plenty.

Some underwear brands keep things simple with a contoured pouch and a contrasting waistband. Kiniki does this to design a jockstrap that’s almost elegant – if it weren’t so erotic. Clever uses a similar design, but with different colors closer to the jockstrap’s roots.In terms of athletic appeal, Nasty Pig’s jock is hard to beat. Theirs is made with a wide waistband and detailing that gives it a retro wrestler aesthetic. The colors help, but it’s all about the sporty striped design on the pouch. We could say something similar for the N2N California Dreamin’ Jock. It’s all about the pouch stripes, but these rock a hipster’s fashion sense.

You can also find jockstraps that dress down the classic style. Brands such as Aware Soho and Baskit design jockbrief hybrids that are more discrete but keep the revealing peek in the back. They’re less erotic for covering more skin, but guys who wear them still show something off. Richard Hunter leaves the classic jock behind, but does it in a different way. They bring in a second jockstrap that brings even more sex appeal to the design. The added strap covers more skin, technically, but pushes the jock into kinky territory.
